    W.Hajenius - R.Braspenning,1998
    Black to play and draw!


    In the actual game Braspenning (rated 2047) lost on time,but he had seen a way to save the game.As he showed during the post mortem.
    It's rather brilliant.Too bad his hands weren't quick enough.

    Well, 1...Qh2+ 2.Kxh2 Rxf2+ 3.Kg1 Rxf6 and you have a rook and three pawns for the queen.

    By my reckoning, your analysis gives black 2 rooks and 4 pawns against queen, rook and pawn.

    That is the same as my reckoning.

    One black rook cancels out with the lone white rook and one black pawn cancels out with the lone white pawn leaving one black rook and three black pawns to one white queen.

    The White player in that game, Willem Hajenius, scored a nice:
    'I can see deeper than you' win in Brazil 2001.

    I've had to change Black's name it is rather rude in Eglish and the RHP
    firewall has just stoped me posting it. (No late April Fool.)

    Yes,black builds a fortress.Apparently not that difficult for you guys.
    Still,not that easy to hold it for a player of my level but an amazing find (in my book).

    I'm also amazed greenpawn knows Willem!

    I think it is easy to see simply because the desperation of the situation forces you to only consider checking sacrifices.

    true,and that's the reason I tried it while attempting to solve it,but I didn't know I had a fortress.Nor could I hold the fortress!
    So,like tom,I did solve it but only half really.
