    none of those moves make any sense but anyway it's an easy draw just sack your knight for the pawn

    Those moves made perfect sense after a game that should have been drawn an hour before we agreed to finish it . . .

    If that is true, then I made an error somewhere. It's a dead draw.

    black cannot win that since the pawn would fall and a knight cannot give checkmate

    Or King takes pawn and its drawn right away (don't even bother with it, burnsy).

    how is this even an argument? this is an endgame me (a 1300 player) can draw

    Yes, but could you do it "with perfect play"?  That's the question. Smile

    I think it's another one of those "This is your brain on drugs" things.

    I was bored, so my opponent and I made really dumb moves. After all, it was a drawn position : P

    At least until White's 3rd move...

    2.Kxe3, which is probably what Scott meant back on post #8. The conversation and the game would have been over before Black could "win" the Knight.

    Yeah, I wasn't even close on the coordinates was I?
