Good game! You defended that backward pawn really well, and then even grabbed some initiative when I over-pressed a bit. I was really happy to have found that little Rxd5 tactic (looks like Rg6 first, and only then Rxd5, was the right plan), though as you said, the computer easily finds a draw with perpetual (after Kc4 and Rc7) in the queen vs. two rooks ending. Still, I think that's a really tough "three result" end game. I know I wasn't entirely sure how to proceed (I had planned on Kd3 and Qe5, with hopes to trade the queen for two rooks at the right time), had some concern of getting mated myself, and perpetual seemed a constant threat for both of us.

I won against JonasGrmby and CynclRelst.

Still in the middle game and all square against Macroman. It will take a while yet to finish this one.

I got lucky with a cute tactic in a lost position against JimF and now I like my chances as we head into the end game.
