    I offered draw. I though black cannot win since white has 2 extra pawns. But, I wonder if white could had a plan to try to win. Also, what could black have tried to win from the position where game ended?

    I much prefer your position!

    If you can get your king into centre and shut out your opponent's king he will have to swap knights for pawns and it s your game!

    I would definitely have played on (we are about the same strength) - but I can see why you accepted a draw from a stronger player.

    I think you guys are forgetting the dark squares.

    Two knights vs a lone bishop?I like those odds.

    But he can't shut out the black King. Next moves are



    And white is stuck defending the e-pawn, which will fall once black attacks it with both N's.
