Very exciting! Do you find an escape route...?

McGoohan

A spirit that is not possessing any piece can only be captured by possessed pieces.

I think this invulnerability makes the spirit very dangerous and this potential only really became clear to me in our game!

This is getting interesting

McGoohan

It could have been extremely interesting and exciting. And maybe you could have really found an escape route. But now it is over.

I was thinking that the game should have continued something like 21.Kc2 Qc3+ 22.Kb1 Qxb3+ 23.Kc1 Qc3+ 24.Kb1 Rjb8

Wc6+ is coming (or Wc8 if white plays d5). White should get checkmated soon. At least that was the cleanest way to win I could find.

It is kinda confusing how they are just mirrors of each other
