Thematic try: 2.Kf4? Kf6! 3.f3 (3.Ke4 h5! 4.gxh5 Kg5 5.Bg6 Ne6= Black controls dark squares. Also, on the table is wrong bishop, so draw is pretty obvious.) 3…Kf7 4.Kg3 Kf6 5.Kh4 And we reach 80th black move in the game Eljanov, P-Arutinian, D. 1/2, European individaual Championship, Drezden, Germany, 04.04,2007, 2nd round. The same idea with opposite pieces colour showed by late P. Benko (1928-2019), Magyar Sakkvilg 2013, No 2167 in hhdbv 5…Kf7! 6.Kh5 Kg7 7.f4 tempo move 7…Kh8!! 8.Kxh6 Ne6! 9.Bxe6=
