  tpstar: <John Doe> Tim Krabbe calls this a "joke promotion" and speculates that it might have been just to confuse the opponent in time pressure. The direct 61 ... h1=Q+ 62. Rxh1 Rxh1 63. Kxh1 Kxa4 is an easy win for Black.

Oct-18-05  John Doe: But wasn't the variation played even easier? It appears to me that the bishop promotion made white less likely to trade.
