    At the risk of being even more boring, I accept the draw offer. I can see no way forward after the pretty much forced: 39.Bxf6

    (eg 39... exf6 40.hxg5 hxg5 41.f4 with R+P being against R+P).

    Thank you for the game, you fought back very well after seemingly losing the pawn for little compensation.

    Unfortunately, it only seems like there are a handful of us left still playing!

    Indeed ... would be nice to see the whole tournament finish up.
    Thanks for the game.

    Are you going to Ballarat this weekend? If so, might see you there ...
