This past weekend I tied for 1st in the Class Section at the Chicago Class. I was able to hold a draw in a tough position. My opponent didn't play his best move to try to mate, but the game would've still ended in a draw.
Here my opponent played 47...Kd6, which immediatly draws. He had a better chance with a different move.
I just thought this was interesting!
Congrats on your 1st place in the tournament. Yes it is interesting. White definitely escaped the checkmate at either Ka1 or Kc1 by b2 with the right moves from black.
By the way 9. Kc1 should draw as well. Even if Black could somehow gain the opposition with kings on c1 and c3, then Kb1 ...b2 Ka2 ...Kc2 is stalemate, so Black is still not winning.
Yep, those damn rook pawns are only good against Knights !
It is critical to evaluate your future position
