  louispaulsen88888888: Nice fortress draw!! The B either goes from g7 to the corner and back or the K goes between h7 and g8.. And the N stays put.

  Bubo bubo: The <Karstedt fortress>, very nice!

Of course even cooler would be an example of the other draw in this endgame, the <Ponziani dungeon>:
