Re: Learning to accept that draws are okay?

In the interest of transparency, I should say that I'm no authority on what it takes to be a good chess player. I topped out around 2000 and am probably a bit worse than that due to rust. I'm basing my views on my own games and my experiences analyzing with and listening to the advice of strong players.

Pretty much around your Elo (and I don't even know it). Give it a try!

Re: Learning to accept that draws are okay?

For the record: I asked Svidler in one of his banter blitz sessions on chess24 about freerolling in chess and he said that it's a valid strategy and that it does work.

He quoted the game Naka-Karjakin - which is a nice coincidence, because it's the same line:

Above all, one needs to play less balanced stuff with black.

Two players about even strength with a rake. Why bother to play? Why not just order some food and call it a draw instead?
