  An Englishman: Good Evening: 33...Ne5 was a fine little trap; if the Queen snatches the pawn, ...Rd7-g7+ and ...Rg7-h7+ forces the perpetual, because any move to the f-file by the White King loses after ...Rf7.
May-05-14  morfishine: White Miessed something
May-05-14  paramount: Okay,
Queen and pawn v rook and knight and 2 pawns.

Of course this isnt usual ending. And I see this is hard for both sides. But isnt white have a chance to win it??

what is the drawish line?? I dont see a one.>......

May-05-14  morfishine: How bout 30.gxh7+ Qxh7 31.Qxh7+ Kxh7
32.Rf3 or 30.gxh7+ Qxh7 31.Qxh7+ Rxh7+ 32.Kg2


May-05-14  snarky: Why not 52. Qh8 with the threat of Qd4+ to follow if the rook takes the pawn?
May-05-14  snarky: Oh. never mind...the response to 52. Qh8 would be Nb6.

I guess that's point of the pun.
