After being tortured for 37 moves, White blunders away the draw with 109.♖d8+? -M17 <Nalimov>. The last pawn move and capture were on move 72 -- so that puts mate over the 50 move limit (carefully counted tit for tat?). Then 110.♔c1 turns -M16 into -M14 -- still over the 50 move limit. Then 111...♖a2? gives away the mate. Then White loses the point in a drawn position (time forfeit?).

Aug-30-05  kozo: i donít see the mate after 111. Kd1
Aug-30-05  mjk: Well, you can go to and enter the FEN input:
3R/////3bk/2r/3K b 111
and play through it.
But basically it is to bring the Black Rook via c5 over to the h-file to mate on the back rank; if the White King tries to run to the queenside, the Rook swings back to the b-file to mate at b1. So White can only prolong the suffering by sacrificing his Rook for the Bishop.
