A race or zugzwang?

1/3/2011 – Rook endings in which both sides have passed pawns can be very sharp, and today's example from recent tournament praxis is hard to evaluate.  White can - play 54.h6 and bet on the race between the passed pawns, - send his g-pawn forwards with 54.g5 - or else put Black in zugzwang with 54.Re8. Which move would you choose? You can find the analysis by Dr. Karsten Müller in ChessBase Magazine Online.
