A curious case of 3-fold

To get a taste of what can happen on the hexboard, have a look at the above curious case of 3-fold, with no equivalent on the square board. White's position is hopeless, of course, but ... see what happens.

Tactics generally tend to dress more capricious on the hexboard, but in Hexemergo they are over the top. In the above example white makes two moves, after which things run their own course. That happens quite often in Hexemergo - things running their own course. A perceivedly well calculated combination may go haywire by the slightest oversight, turning the board into a whirlpool of unforeseen captures, the outcome of which is in the hands of fate.
Nothing wrong yet, though. Capricious games where chances may turn several times have their own charm.
