    you are rated around 1200, which is Class E, I don't see a way that you can draw with someone with a rating of 2100+.

    ^^^ thats the game. look it over.

    well, if you really played that well, then your rating shows me that you are probably inconsistent.

    I think black just over looked the simple 3-fold rep.


    well done all the same though.

    If it's impossible to upset someone, why play chess?

    I thought I beat a GM at blitz once, but I may have hallucinated it.

    It's also possible that the OP plays better OTB than here. I know I take much more time per move in OTB tournaments than on RHP, and my RHP rating shows it!
