    Maybe he was looking so many moves ahead that he could see the endgame blunders that he was going to make.

    Why didn't you start trading pieces, way to early to agree on a draw.

    Why did you accept that draw? You could have easily won that game. Also by the way, move 17 or so, why didn't you take his pawn with a discovered attack? You did move the knight away, but why not take the extra pawn? Anyway, I'm not an expert but I thought that was a well played game.

    I am confused also, accepting the draw offer = ???

    14. h3 is weird move. It leads to strange complications. Better was retreat of that bishop to d2 or e3 square.

    Weird? That wasn't weird that was a blunder.

    Bf4 is what I would have played Be3 then Bxf3 and the kings pawn cover is screwed because the queen can't take back since the bishop is in the way. Bd2 drops a pawn and gets in the way of a rook to d1 after 14...Bxf3 15.Qxf3 Bxd4 and now if the bishop was on f4 Rfd1 could be played to get the pawn back with a better position to boot. With blacks level of play I would expect this line. 14.Bf4 Bxf3 15.Qxf3 Bxd4 16.Rfd1 Bxb2 17.Rab1 Qb5 18.c3! and black is lost.
