Josh,
I agree it's a beautiful study!
Though, once again, in one of the variations black has to play a Q vs R endgame. At my level this frustratingly turns into a draw...:-(

Nibbler,

While that is frustrating, black has a few pawns left, so he'll probably be able to win some pawns and then force a winning king and pawn ending that will be much easier to play.

Thanks, really nice combination :thumright: I remember I once saw a beautiful game where black sacrificed his queen and chased the white king all other the board sacrificing pieces non stop to create mate threats. Eventually it ended up with a peripetual check. If I find it I'll definetaly show it to you all. It's a bizzare game and the game was repeated move by move a couple of times!
