This game is not prettied up yet.
The general story of the game is that White (the Clobberers) got a promising position, but Black cleverly traded a Rook for a FAD and a Pawn (probably one should say Black won material) which destroyed the White position. After many clever struggles, White tried to defend by stalemating his own King and imposing a blockade, but this failed.
The position around move 17 is well worth looking at, and the endgame is highly interesting.

Well, I don't know if my move convinces you; it's not earthshaking, but I do think your FAD and f4 pawn are worth my Rook. 19. g2-g3 Bc7 20. a2-a3 Qe7 21. (BD)a1-c3 Be5 22. (BD)c3:a5 Bd4 23.

This is a moral victory, if nothing else; though j'adoubes usually indicate the player is in trouble and/or doesn't have a good grasp of the position; I speak from personal experience :-) 27.
