On move 59, Black resigns, as White can mate in three moves. Black's next move would be Rxf3+.

Analysis: Your king takes rook, Kxf3, which threatens mate (rook to c8). Black answers with bishop to d1, which checks your king. You move your king to f4, which moves it out of check and threatens mate (rook to c8). Black replies by moving pawn to c4, which moves it out of immediate danger and advances the passed pawn. You move your rook to c8, which checkmates Black's king.

You can mate in three moves.
