    It isn't very glorious but in some ways, it feels as good as a win.

    I was almost embarrassed early in the game the way I let him open up on the queen side against me; and, of course, I hung my bishop, although he missed it.

    I think the key to salvaging the draw in retrospect was 31. ... a3! That's what ultimately allowed me to secure the d pawn and set up the blockade.
