Last OTB game for this season
The regional chess league has concluded today for this season, and our team finished a respectable third out of eight. Not really bad, but we were hoping for more ... better luck next season.
In the final round, we faced the league leaders, who guaranteed their #1 place already before the last round. Last time we met the same team, they fielded a lineup of one International and three National Masters. This time they could afford to show with their second squad. Here is the game on board 1:
White: Yours Truly (1972)
Black: Y. Markovich (2059) - not to be confused with A. Markovich (2192) against whom I played 4 weeks ago.
1. e4 e6
Sorry for the anti-climactic finish ... but since the season already came to an end, we decided not to strain our brain muscles too much and call it a draw on all four boards, and escaped the venue, each to his own kids and wife, screaming something to the effect of 'see you next year!'.

Very long game....
Is it allowed in OTB to make a draw after 1 move?

Maybe you were too busy replaying the game and didn't notice the rest of the text of the message, so I'll repeat the key points for you:

Of course, a much more relevant question would be: why did I waste bandwidth by posting this "game"? And the answer to this is: well, since I posted all the others, it just didn't seem right for me to skip the last one. It's a matter of journalistic integrity ...
