Quite economical and beautiful K-chase with a draw pendulum at the end, with the traditional trick of an en-passant capture to ensure that White starts the pendulum so Black has to stop it. Note that 9.Pa5xPb6 e.p.? doesn’t work as 10.Kf6?? becomes illegal, giving Qa1 something else to do after the introductory play.
