I accept. Thanks for the game.

I thought I was better for a while there but I underestimated the strength of your rooks on the d-file and also your bishops. They seemed to find much better diagonals than mine did.

Yeah in the early parts of the game I definitely disliked my position a little, for example e3 was simply a wasted tempo. But I think after I went with the e pawn sacrifice I was able to get my pieces working well, I'm really pleased with that one.

the position was quite complicated throughout the opening and middlegame.

Yes I thought I had prevented e4 but it was well timed - My 15...Re8 was probably a mistake in light of what happened.

shouldn't this be winning for white because the white rook is behind the passed A-pawn.

Not sure if it is "winning" - no question he is better. Probably the pertinent point was that white had draw odds since he was defending a title. A draw was just as good as a win from that point of view.

OK, that makes sense. In other circumstances, White would have nothing to lose by trying to win. E.g. bring the K to the Q-side, and playing h4 if allowed. Then it might reach Kc2 vs Kc4, then White moves his R up and down to force Black to move and thus give way.

James Watson

If I recall correctly, at the time I didn't really feel like pushing the edge because I had other stuff going on plus as stated, a draw was effectively the same result as a win. But yeah, definitely OTB or if in a team game I'd definitely be pushing hard for a win since white doesn't really need to fear losing.
