Murra Family Team Tourney - Round 3

Brutal game. We were the last board playing, and didn't finish up until almost 11:30p. I felt pretty pushed around the whole game and was in time trouble at the end, so I'm very relieved to have come away with a draw, which I'm not sure he really should have given me at the end especially considering the time situation. I missed a pretty obvious tactic in the last few moves, although I'm not too sad about that since I was exhausted and struggling to not use up too much time. I spent almost half an hour at move 23, convinced that there was a beautiful tactic there if I could just find it. I didn't find it, and probably would have been better off with the time. I haven't put it in the computer yet, but am anxious to see if my gut was right there (or possibly the move before)

  1. Draw after move 44????? is this because your opponent was running low on time? I don't see a drawn position here at all!! White is a whole lot better here! but then again I got a draw when my opponent had a won position during the same round (coincidence). His position was the same as this one (in terms of being better). Funny how we both got draws in this round :).
