    What is the evaluation before white's 42'nd move? Does it spot the draw?? Somehow i feel NO HUMAN PLAYER would miss that this leads to repetition...

    Perhaps,but the only other move,Kh2,doesn't help any either,does it?

    Both Kxh4 and Kh2 are draws according to Stockfish.

    Is this really a draw? Why hasnt white won this end game? Am I missing something simple?

    40.Qd6 was a terrible misjudgment of the position. There were several good moves, perhaps the best was Kg5 and go hide the white king behind the black pawns and then using the freepawn to win. After this 40th move, I think that perpetual was unavoidable.

    Neither do I but the OP specifically asked for engine analysis of that specific position. All this proves is that humans and engines agree the game is drawn at that point.
