Daily Rome Shot 548, etc.

This seemed appropriate.

As featured in my recent cooking post…

The waving flag is for donations for my upcoming trip to Rome in October. However on a daily basis please remember, when you are shopping online at Amazon, to enter Amazon through my links. If you do that, Amazon remembers how you arrived and I get a small percentage of each sale. You get the same price. I can’t see what you buy. It really helps. Thanks in advance. US HERE – UK HERE

On 29 August 1972 in Reykjavík, Iceland, Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky sat down for their 20th game. Fischer had white and Spassky had a black. Fischer twice pushed for a draw by threefold repetition. After 54 moves Fischer claimed that there had been a threefold repetition, but there had not been. Spassky agreed to a dry anyway. With each draw, each player received one half point. Since Fischer was way ahead anyway, draws suited him just fine. The 21st and last game would be played on 31 August.

White to move. I find endgame puzzles to be very tricky.
