In case you missed the onscreen message that whizzes by at 6:40 it essentially says " if Kd8, then mate follows after Nc6+ so Kf8 is forced and that is a draw."

Fantastic stuff, I fancy these humourous compositions quite a bit.

Yep- I like the humor ones too. This was one of my favorites from the series. I do have a few more from that tourney that I'll present at some point. I think that there is something inherently humorous (as well as awe-inspiring) about endgame studies in general as it is usually the outlandish nature of many key moves (as well as some internal moves too) that impress us as being such radical a departure from "normal" and cliched chess thinking.
