The second position should be a draw... black pins the pawn and shuffles their queen along the second rank while white keeps his rook along the g file. But I'm guessing white checkmated black or that white resigned.

Hi Tom Tom

You are right that Black must keep the g-pawn pinned so The Queen must stay
on the 2nd Rank and the Rook must not stray from the g-file.
It's a truly wonderful position.

The way the game went closes the position wonderfully. See the Blog.
