There can come a stage in a game when you can guarantee a draw or decide whether to push on for the win. I think that there are studies that show we are inately conservative in that w ...[text shortened]... ld at an irrationally high level and this factor probably explains the majority of agreed draws.
i played the possible lines from sacking the knight and i didn't fancy my chances, maybe my opponent didn't look at it.
i draw a lot of games and i somewhat agree with that theory but it shouldn't have come intro play here, it was a ladder game were a draw was of no use to my opponent, only to me. sure xe got a few rating points because of the draw but surely the main aim should've been to climb the ladder with the win.
