I recently lost a game due to the fact my opponent was attempting to create a draw. The opponent was trapped and kept moving back and forth to prevent checkmate so I made a different move and to my surprise allowed the opponent to eventually checkmate me. I had a lot more pieces and the advantage till that happened.
Should I have allowed a draw to hap ...[text shortened]... my moving to prevent the draw the right thing to do even though it eventually caused my demise?
To summarize your post:
My opponent did not want to lose so played to draw,
I did not want a draw so played to lose.
I had more pieces and was winning until I lost.
Similar threads have been discussed ad nauseum but I still find them funny ...
