Inner West Swiss - Round 5
This blog follows my quest for an official FIDE rating.
My very first 'Grandmaster Draw'. What can I say? My opponent is 13 years old and I was told before the game (by someone that shall remain nameless) that if I play well I 'might' get a draw. That doesn't exactly inspire confidence! I'm thinking he's some kind of child genius so when I'm down by 15 minutes on the clock in an opening I don't have that much experience in, and he offers me a draw? I'll take that half point thanks very much! I did learn one thing though... all draw offers should be marked on the score sheet next to the last move. So it wasn't a complete waste afterall .
