Btw: This is my friends account, I haven't verified my e-mail because I'm too lazy :p. He allowed me to post on his account!! Black = Me!!!
Feeling too lazy atm to go through this position and annotate. However, I will say that there is no way White can win in this position unless Black falls asleep AND sleep walks to another location.
I'm sorry - are you asking at the end of your annotation if White could win with R+B v Q+R+R?
LongIslandMark: Yes Sir.
You seem to be serious, so I'll answer. I agree with Phylar. I do not see any way White could win from this position. In general it's possible to win even being down this much material, but only if the position is very bad for the side with more material.
A more interesting question would be to figure out how few moves can black take to mate.
Also: I think it's against the rules to use your friends account. It could get him into trouble.
Win the e-pawn, trade queen for rook when possible or rook for bishop, then you could win with a rook and passed pawns vs. not so passed pawns.
I think you misunderstood. The OP was asking if White could win. You give a reasonable recipe for Black.
It's curious we even got the question if the ratings the OP shows are realistic.
Is there any chance that a 1300 rated player can beat a 2700 rated player?
