Hmmm… The tournament has just finished and I scored 6.5/10. I lost my last round game from a dead draw position in time pressure and ultimately lost.
Well, In the penultimate round I was paired with a IM. I was not having any problem when paired against him. I drew that game from a clearly winning position for me.
This is the position where I took draw by perpetual checks. Because, I sacrificed my rook for a good position.
I thought why to take risk by moving any other piece and maybe I would lose. I was having a lot of respect for my opponent I think…
Anyway highly instructive psychological lesson for me.
When I came home and I started analyzing the game where I missed 29. Nxd6, which was a clear advantage for white nearly +4 evaluation.
Well, It’s a lesson for me.
