Default remarkable endgame

I played this on FICS recently. I missed the remarkable move g4!!. This
demonstrates that one must always search for unexpected continuations in
endgames with light pieces.

[Event "rated standard game"]
[Site "Free Internet Chess Serv"]
[Date "2015.06.09"]
[Round "?"]
[White "M. Winther"]
[Black "N.N."]
[Result "1/2-1/2"]
[WhiteElo "?"]
[BlackElo "?"]
[ECO "A90"]
[Annotator "?"]
[SetUp "1"]
[FEN "2b5/8/1pk1p2p/P3Pp2/2B2P2/4K1P1/7P/8 b - - 0 1"]

1....Kc5 $2 ( 1....bxa5 2.Kd4 {and white is better, but it would likely
end in a draw.} ) 2.Kd3 $2 ( 2.g4 $3 fxg4 ( 2....bxa5 3. g5 $18 ) 3.a6
4.a7 Bb7 5.f5 $18) 2....bxa5 3.Kc3 {etc.}
