Default A Short, 17-move Draw.

Both these players are rated above 1800. Do you see anything unusual in the way the game ended?

I now think that Black might have played 12...Re8, and later missed that he could play ...Kf8 because Qf7# would be illegal owing to the pin on the queen.

I see that white missed a smothered mate. Here is one game I played earlier this year where I got a smothered mate, also with a Scandinavian opening.
