    Why did you agree to a draw? You had a winning advantage in that position, due to white's useless bishop and your active pieces.

    Seriously... you reached that position against a master then agreed to a draw?!?!

    Sadly, that guy wasn't an IM and he did not play like one either

    After 20.Qf3 and a future Rfb1, Black will face some serious problems.

    It was an internet simul; Like anyone else, IMs play weaker when they can't give full concentration/ are distracted.

    The position is even but so unbalanced it doesn't seem drawish to me... I think the better player wins from there.

    I think you played a really interesting game with that sac. You sort of sold out taking a draw there though IMO. I know it's a GREAT result for you (congrats) but you had a chance to have an exciting game that you'd learn a lot from playing. You'd probably lose because the IM's got a lot of technique to call on as the game gets end-gamy, but so what!
