  offramp: Puns are coming thick and fast from <OCF>!

He is in the Szoen.

Feb-28-19  goodevans: <36.Kd1> would lose to <36...Rd7 37.Bd3 Rxd3 38.cxd3 Rxd2+>.

White could make a few moves with his K-side pawns but those soon run out to leave <Zugzwang>.

Feb-28-19  Jambow: Am I missing something or is<19...Rxc8+ > Never mind... Whites incredible intermezzo gaining of a rook is foiled with a check mate. Hate when that happens. Glad i took a second peek ;0]
