My friend and I have played once before. He won that game with a pawn advantage. Last night's game should have been an easy win for him when I blundered my bishop. Chalk it up to one of those times when I see something that really isn't there. So being down, I decided to just play wildly and try to get some perpetual checks to see if I could get it to a draw. And amazingly, I was able to pull it off.
We weren't keeping a move-sheet, so I don't recall all the moves. He had a knight on d7 ... he had not castled. I was able to line my rooks and queen on the d column. I took the knight with my rook, he retook with his rook, I then moved QxPe5+, he moved Kf8, I retook with QxR on h8+, he went back with Ke7. From there, I was able to give perpetual check with either Qb8+ or Qh8+.
It was a fun game and we both agreed we'd need to play a few more times over the next few weeks.
