Mike Serovey Draws Tom G. Schrade Again

Here is my second game with Tom G. Schrade. This one also ended in a draw despite my many errors. I feel lucky to have drawn this game all things considered. Drawing this game brought my USCF correspondence rating down to 1903. The game was a Queen pawn opening that transposed into a Pirc defense, Byrne variation. The complete game, with analysis and diagrams, can be found at http://www.mikeseroveyonchess.com/TomGSchrade-Pirc.html. Here is the game in PGN.
