Start of the Game

Arash's open interests me. We briefly discuss his advantages and my choices.




BRANCH POINT

Arash played Re1+ for the win.
I don't think we played it out, but the endgame is clearly: ... Rd1. Rxd1# 1-0

Going back to the branch point, the game proceeds and gets here.

After various exchanges we get into this position.
I got my king to prevent his pawns from advancing.
I can't remember whose turn it is, but from this position, I won.
I don't know how I won, looking at the board, it seems white might have had a chance. At least to force a stalemate.
