Feb-01-12  Stonehenge: doesn't seem to work atm. Perhaps black plays 57...Kd6 instead of ...f4.

Feb-01-12  master of defence: Thanks, <Sastre> and <Stonehenge> for your analysis. I don't continue with my analysis, because i was thinking what king and queen vs king and rook pawn is a draw with the pawn in 7ª file and the king protecting your pawn too in 7ª file. This is a good example what i was wrong about that.
