That is a nice wee combo Gutso. The joy of it being if it was OTB
(I always think OTB chess) getting here I think I could see in my mind.
White to play.
And if I could not see a win at least I would have a perpetual.
I often dive in saccing thngs if I can at the very least a perpetual.
Botvinnik to his great credit admitted that when he played his famous game
against Capablanca (Avro 1936) he saw the had at the very least a perpetual
so went for the critical line. He found the superb win OTB after he got to the
bit where he knew he had a perp. (A lot of writers fail to mention that and
claim he [Botvinik] saw it all.)
Art's joke lite up a wee light my dull brain.
Is there not a famous game that ended something like this.
(Just the bones of the combo. There were other pieces on the board.
I cannot recall the postion. Just the idea, the pattern.)
