Draw???

Interesting enough for a silicon monster anlayse!

Mar-27-10  TheScroobiousPip: No way this is a draw.

Mar-27-10  vodkaboris: Once Black moves 50... Rf2, the threat of ....Nf4 levels things up. I can't see that white has anything better than swapping queens on e2, and since he then can't stop ...Nf4, he'll lose the bishop on g2. White's best hope is surely to let the bishop go and manouevre his remaining queen to take the pawn on c5, leaving queen + pawn vs rook + knight + 2 pawns. Pretty even.
