Default One more game

Since I've posted a win and a loss here recently, I thought I'd close
the loop and post a draw. Not a very pretty game, but one I'm proud of
nonetheless. It was the first time I drew an expert -- playing 1.d4,
no less. (Imagine that! QP opening leading to a draw...who'd a thunk

Would like to hear some comments on it -- especially about the endgame.
I know 56.Kf2? is bad because it allows black to infiltrate my side of
the board for a perpetual, but if 56.Kf1 instead, does white have
winning chances with the extra pawn? All comments are welcome and
