IM John Grefe Marathon round 6 Alex Shrauger vs NM Roger Poehlmann. the above position is a variation that could of happened. It is black to move the above position is a draw, however black can still stir up trouble with Bf6! Bc1 (white waits) Bd8! Bf4 Bb6! and if white plays Be3 its a draw by a miracle, but if Bc1 then Bg1! Bd2 Bh2! Bf4. g5! Hxg5 h4! gives black great winning chances!
