Rule1: If White's queen is captured = draw
Rule2: If White's pawn promotes = white win
Rule3: If Black's king leaves the 8 squares f8,g8,h8,f7,g7,h7,g6,h6 = white win
Rule4: If Black's rook leaves the squares b6, c6, f6, f2, h6 = white win
Rule5: If Black's pawns leave the squares g7, h6, g5 = white win
Rule6: If White's pawn advances = white win
Rule7: If Black's pawn promotes = white win
Rule8: If Black's rook is captured = white win unless the capturing piece can be recaptured = draw
Rule9: If a Black pawn is captured = white win unless the capturing piece can be captured = draw
Note that the vast majority of the rules favor White.

The output from position
[D] 3Q4/6pk/5r1p/4K2P/8/8/8/8

WTM all moves = draw
BTM Rf6-c6 or Rf6-f2 draw, all other moves lose.

All 3-4-5 tablebases present. Only some 6-man present.
All tablebases were checked to not be corrupted using Wilhelm, but only in the distant past, not immediately prior to running Freezer.

QED? I hope so, this is much further than I ever intended to go with such a trivial position.

It's ludicrous, to have to go to such measures to appease a few skeptics.

Robin, you are a far more patient man than I.
