  fredthebear: Use milk pails w/handles. That's what FTB does when visiting the big city. Much easier to carry around that way. Wooden buckets are preferred to metal come winter time.

Great determination and poise by Black to eventually promote the h-pawn.

The final position is an obvious draw. Black will have no trouble getting to the c-file to remove the last White pawn, or force three-fold repetition.

Both players must be exhausted.
