    This was a game I played against SERGEANTPMAIN. I really thought he was better, but he offered a draw so I accepted. I'm playing black.

    I'm curious what you stronger players think of this position.




    Just in case you're curious how we reached it.

    Indeed the draw is a gift. White is clearly winning. He's up a pawn, active and threatening to win pawn number 2 (Re8-a8-x-a6). I don't see any real defence.

    Seems like a win for white.
