One of the perpetuals is not clear what heppened.
(because it was not a perpetual) 🙂
tbogodes - ntss 100
I searched for draws containg 3 consecutive checks by either side.
This positon appeared Black to play.
So I played 1...Rh2+ 2.KxR QxR+ 3.Kh3 Qxf3+ and then started thinking
this is a not a perpetual. Black has no Qf5+.
So I looked at was played. Black played 3..Qg3+ and it's a stalemate. Der....
By then I had seen nothing but perpetuals for hundreds of games.
I added my 3...Qxf3+ moves but it's not clear what happened
so I am clearing it up.
There are still 1,000 in there that I've never seen, another day, another blog.
Here is the full tbogodes - ntss 100 game.
Smashing stuff with some real tricky play going on.
White to play. Does QxN work? (if QxQ Nf6+).
A draw was the fair result.
My guess is that Black saw the stalemate idea when he played 29...b5
and was rewarded 9 moves later.
