  GrahamClayton: Here is a great save by Rovner, playing White against Guldin at Moscow in 1939:

Black has just played 57...e1=♕. 58.♕xe1? ♕f5+ 59.♔h4 ♕g4 is mate, while Black also has the threat of 58...♖xg3+ 59.hxg3 ♕h1#.

Rover cleverly exploited the cramped position of his King and the pin along the 3rd rank to force a draw with 58.♕g8! ♔xg8 59.♕e8+ ♔h7 60.♕g8+ ♔h6 61.♕h7+ ♔g5 62.♕h6+ ♔xh6 stalemate.
