After 26 moves, we decided to call this chess game a draw.

We began play in this server-based correspondence chess game on 18 February. and moved from our Queen’s Gambit Accepted opening, through an exciting middlegame, to an endgame which found us equally matched in a Rook-pawn endgame. With my 26…h5 a few days ago I offered a draw to White, and he accepted.
