I will just tell you this- the main line is over 50 moves long, but a lot of the puzzle is a kind of repetition motif. As one final hint until you show me what you have to this point is this- I was reminded of this amazing puzzle because of a the K +2N vs K+P puzzle Susan posted here a couple of days ago.

There is a win in there, but it is a <i>long</i> puzzle with at least 3 important variations. Show me what you have so far and I can tell you whether or not you are in the right zip code of a solution.

Yancey, you know you gave me a very tough puzzle. I know how to get a draw so far.
