Here, Vidmar inquired "Draw?"

I recalled that once when Vidmar offered Rubinstein a draw, he was met with the tactful reply "If the specialists consider our position drawn, I agree..." Vidmar resigned soon afterwards.

I also answered Vidmar evasively, "Is this position really drawn?"

"Very well" - said Vidmar "Go on, young man, go on!"

The words "go on", as it were, urged me forward! I remembered that once I read something about triangulation..

After five minutes, the game was over.>
