In this example black can now win in 20 moves with Nxh3.

No. Black mates in 30 moves according to the Lomonosov tablebases.

After 3'50" it is already -6.00. So that does not look like a possible draw to me, even without tablebases installed.

I let Crafty run for 10 minutes at 100M nodes per second. Stopped at almost -8.00. One interesting test is to remove the rooks, since this is a KNNKP type ending, and sure enough, it appears that if rooks are traded, this is a win for black because of the poor white h pawn location.

I'd suspect it is won for black based on these results...

At depth 40, SF gives a <120 score, that means the position is lost for white :

Of course and then black can win in 87 moves! :oops:
Perhaps white should try Qh5+ instead. :roll:
