    My opponent and I just finished this game and agreed to post it for comment. It's a claimed draw by repetition. Neither of us saw a win, and deviating from our repeated moves looked dangerous, or at best, still drawish. Was there a win, there at the end, for either of us?

    This is my first game post. If this doesn't post, it's game id 7735454.

    28. Qe3 was a mistake, as it forced white to lose the exchange and relieve some pressure on black . Far stronger is Qg5. White's knights look dangerous so, without further analysis, blacks position looks worse. Further thoughts tomorrow, when the guinness effect has dissipated!

    Thanks, I was wondering if someone let an engine work on the position where the draw was called -- what would it say to do. Also, do engines ever recommend claiming a draw by repetition or do they just show the best-scored moves, and let you decide?

    I wonder if your opponent White could have won with 42.Kd2.
