    I don't understand the reasoning behind 18. Nf1, taking it back to the edge of the board?

    Why wouldn't you play 18. Nf5, threatening 19. Nd6 and forking both those pawns?

    You are free to move any other. This is just a schematic study without computers analysis, to show a principal, what happens, if blacks avoids a draw


    Yes, but what happens is that if black avoids a draw and allows 18. Nf3 and 19. Nd6, it seems he's turned the drawn position into a lost position, by allowing the cluster of three passed pawns on the queenside, while White's king seems to have the kingside passed pawn under wraps pretty well.
