  tpstar: I suspect Black won this game (0-1) since after 35. Ka1 Nxf1 36. Rxf1 g5 Black is up a piece plus 2 Pawns. I also suspect the last move was 34 ... Ne1+ with Mate in One.

  FSR: <tpstar>'s surmises make sense. There's no reason at all that Black would agree to a draw.

  Phony Benoni: Why use logic when you can just look it up?

Round 1, Player #13 vs. Player #617. Black did indeed win. Correction slip on the way.
