I Almost Beat An IM

I was almost able to get away with a position that was almost up 5 or 6 points against an IM. That would have been great but with my usual luck I was able to find the worst move in the position and lose.

Doesn't matter, for it to be any value, you can't lose. Anyways, good job.

I remember once in a club I was very low rated (Sub 1000s)

I was playing a 1700.

He blundered the exchange and then I got a very drawish position. He said; "This looks very drawish."

I told him; "How much is it going to take to change that to a "I give up""

It was funny because my friend was watching.

(I won the game!)

Maybe your mistake was move number 12.

You should make 12. … B f 5 +... shouldn't you ?

not 12. ... d 5

12. … d 5 was a silly move that worsened your position.

It says "Almost" right there.

not 12. d5

D5 is better because it traps the bishop and forces it to take the pawn. 

My mistake was on move 15.
