Feb-26-08  Knight13: Is Black Henry Edward Bird ?

And the final position... Really, Black can't draw it?

Feb-26-08  Knight13: No, Black can't nevermind I plugged in my steel friend and he said White's got a score of +2.67.

That score could be based entirely on the material advantage of rook versus knight. The computer doesn't necessarily see a plan how to win here. That's because in such quiet endgame positions, the winning plan often takes more moves than the computer's lookahead horizon.

Still, I agree your computer's estimate happens to be right this time. See the kibitzing at Vidmar vs Alekhine, 1930 for a brief discussion about a similar position.
