    Ok, far from immortal, but let me enjoy a nice, fighting draw.

    Look at the game first.

    (*Gameknot tournament, 3+2)

    I remember once during Belgrade junior championship in 1980, I was lost in a game and wanted to resign. I extended my hand over the table, but it was pretty flabbily, and my opponent didn't figure it was resigning gesture: I guess he believed I was hesitating to make a move! Then a beautiful girl came in the hall and I didn't want to resign in front of her and I made a move.

    I won the game later, because my opponent made a series of mistakes.




    ..............................................
    Some positions from the game


    I took Pawn on b3...


    I almost resigned here but I played ...Na5


    . ...Rc8!


    White should have played Qf4.


    I played b3!


    Now I was thinking I was wining. But...


    Here I was expecting Bd3 and further attack - I think I calculated win for White but he offered a draw instead.
