Rapid league fight vs. IM Raymond Kaufman

This was fun! Holding a draw against IM Raymond Kaufman was a minor miracle because he didn't give up too many points in Vancouver's rapid chess league. Remember, these are fast 15 10 games.

IM Kaufman offered me a draw since he can't make any progress. Note how my White King is in front of his passed pawn. Black can't escape checks and if he strays too far, I simply return to the e-file and take the e-pawn. Draw! 

Happy New Year!!
