  fredthebear: In the final position, the White king gets caught behind the locked pawn chain. The rook battery on the open h-file will easily prevail. The White monarch is unable to escape the ensuing checks after 57...Rxh3+. Retreating to the back rank allows Rh1+, skewering the White Qa1 in the opposite corner. Following her capture, the a-file passer is also taken. If the White king tries to move up the board to Kg3 again to avoid the back rank skewer, advancing the second (trailing) rook on the h-file is checkmate after R8h3#.
