Meanwhile you don't even know what to play in the current position, while I know what your next 6 moves will be!
I guess that white already has a drawing line but analyze some alternatives because white plays for a win.
Yes, of course. The test of Black's hardware and methodology will soon begin.

What about white's methodology? I reckon the best course of action would have been to keep the queens on the board. After the queens are gone my depth shoots up, my horizon grows significantly, and I can look at significantly more positions than when queens are present.

So am I going to easily predict the next 5 moves from Zenmastur and then suddenly the 6th one is unexpected and puts me in trouble? We will see...

I assume Zenmastur hopes that your hardware and tablebase deficits can be exploited. We will see...

I really hope so, so far this game has been a waste.
