Nov-10-12  David2009: A Bebel vs V Malinin, 2007 Black to play and draw (83...?):

click for larger view

Not easy but general principles help. See game for solution (Black chose wrongly).

With best play by both sides, there is a tablebase mate in about 40 moves, long past the 50-move rule draw point.

But the real Black miscalculation occured 32 moves earlier when Black wrongly surrendered Q for R thinking that the ensuing ending would be easy to draw. Drawing it using the 50 move rule is much harder than it looks!

<endgamebot> on the Free Internet Chess Server plays the Black side of these endings. You type "tell endgamebot play <FENstring>". Thanks, <Ludens>! (program author). It is interesting to play these endings from both sides: as the attacker I struggle, as the defender I tend to lose much faster than I should.

Defender hint: If the attacker will have no constructive move with the free N, defend by taking the opposition.
