Chess school: King march

I am starting a new series of strategical and tactical themes - Chess school. In the following example, black pieces are completely tied down to defense, but it seems white can not increase the pressure (or can he?). White puts his last piece (which usually sits in the corner until the endgame) into the attack, and this can be done due to the passiveness of black pieces and lack of counterplay. OK, enough clues, start solving :). After you are done, you can check the complete game below.

    Richard V triumphs again!

    GM Richard Teichmann was nicknamed Richard the Fifth on account of winning many fifth-prizes in tnmts. Despite the handicap of being blind in one eye he drew a short match with Alekhine in 1920: +2 -2 =2.

    Very nice, it reminds me of Short-Timman, Tillburg 1991. I wonder if Short had this game in mind when he started his own king march!

    @evil_joker: Yes, its a mistake in the database. In one of my books, black resigns after 35. Kh5.
