Last night I played FM John Curdo again and for the second encounter in a row, I earned a draw. This game was a really tough fight for me. I felt that at points I had an advantage and then I would make some inaccurate moves and then in the later stages of the middle game he was able to muster some initiative and I was forced to defend accurately. The endgame was interesting as I had two Knights vs two Bishops. His pawns were stuck on light squares and his King had no entry and therefore I held on for the draw.
