Yesterday in Spokane's City Championship Challenger's tournament, I had black and move in this position.

I wanted to play 24...Bxc5, but was worried about 25.Ng5 and the vulnerability of my king. I played 24...Rxf3, giving back the exchange and the game eventually was drawn. Were my fears justified?

The Good News

As a consequence of this draw, I had some pressure to win the final game to assure victory in the tournament. I succeeded! Now, I am preparing for the Spokane City Championship where I am the challenger against the current champion. His Elo is a mere 519 above mine, so it should be a good match.
