    I thought this was an interesting position so I thought I'd post it...

    Everything is protected and I can just go in and take the rook with my king. If his/her king tries to help I can promote my pawn.

    I am sure the game was not played well on either side, but it was funny how everything fell into place like this.

    one of mine, I know there was no "need" to corner the rook but I felt compelled to do it!!!!!
