Feb-03-03  AgentRgent: I don't understand these GM draws... How is black not better here?
Feb-03-03  mdorothy: Personally, I don't see shelter from the checks. Once the white queen checks at f5 she can just stay on the C8-H3 diagonal most of the time.
Feb-03-03  Spitecheck: Yeah it's basically perpetual check, black would be better except for the fact his King has nowhere to hide.
