Apr-01-17  ACMEKINGKRUSHER: EPIC...maybe
You could see it in NAZI's face at the end when SHE knew that she could LOSE this one! A FABULOUS game where even the "Experts" were calling it a DRAW! Then the "Shock and AWE in their announcing what was going to happen! "Does She know.... The CLOCK is "TICKING"..... "SHE DOES!!! It was a very exciting game and just may or may not determine the eventual victor. Just as the Game by IRINA KRUSH went on to show her VICTORY...The after game interview also revealed her trying "NEW" things out this year! What will happen when they(KRUSH & NAZI) play this year??? Back to this was also a fine example of determination and persistence. Nazi was only 2 moves away from a DRAW by the 50 Move Rule. This game HAS a Great Many CHESS Lessons To Demonstrate! BRAVO LADIES! ACME KING KRUSHER!
Apr-01-17  Steve.Patzer: Exactly as you said, only 2 moves away from draw by the 50 move rule.

Apr-01-17  Strelets: An endgame that I've never had to play nor had the desire to play. It's amazing that it can remain this tedious after centuries of analysis as far back as Philidor

  tamar: I should have learned the tablebase endgames, I should have learned to draw that one.

Look at this yoyo, money from my pocket,
two moves from drawing, this ain't no fun.

to the tune of Money for Nothing
