  1. There was only one move that I didn’t quite like – 11… Qb6, b6 looks better, more stable.
    You played very accurately and a draw was a fair result, congratulations.

  2. Thanks! 🙂

    Yeah, I totally missed that 11…Qb6? drops a pawn to 12.Nxe5! BxBg2, 13.Nc4! the point (intermezzo), keeping a pawn. I had only seen 13.Nd7?? Qc7, 14.KxB QxN when he is down a piece. 11…b6 was best.

    I should have played 13…Qxb2, when I didn’t think I could hold the extra pawn, but it would have given me best winning chances.
