I confess that this is more obscure than most of the others in the series (though another of the escapee's games from the same tournament is quite well-known) but as it's a very instructive pawn ending, some readers may know of it for that reason.
A Botvinnik game?
Ilyin-Zhenevsky vs Botvinnik, USSR champs 1938. White played 66. Kf4? g6 1/2-1/2 instead of 66. Kf3! g6 67. hxg6+ Kxg6 68 Kf4 and wins
