    My first drawn game, also my 20th rated game

    Game 3439979

    *note: 27 Bxa2 would've won for black, but it was a mis-opportunity

    Draws are quite rare and sometimes more satisfying than wins. I was pleased with Game 3236996 in the end, although, as Crafty gleefully pointed out during our postmortem, I could have kept my pawns and good winning chances with 24. ... Rh1 preventing the problems on e6. Crafty tells me I could have forced the draw earlier at the end by pushing my pawn at a number of points (eg move 37). But with the bishop safely out of it, ready to sacrifice itself for the remaining white pawn or, as happened in the end, swap itself for the knight so that the K+P v K ending was drawn, I don't think there was anything wrong with the way I played it out.
