Originally posted by ih8sensWhat was the better move? I also figured he was playing for a draw but that would pressure you a little bit and he could still draw it later couldn't he?
1. He had a better move there (which he missed).
2. I would still have a material advantage.
3. He was playing for a draw because I had too much material on him.

20. Be8+, Bc7

22. Rd1+, Kxe8
23. Qxc7, Qe7
24. Qb8+, Bc8
25. Qxc8+, Qd8
Most of that is forced...
Originally posted by PaddyBI wonder how I could have avoided a draw then... I was in a won position it appears.

I can't find any line that equalises for white after move 19, with Bd7+ not winning back the bishop due to Bxa1, leaving white with B vs R+P.
