Missed opportunity to save the game

White to move and draw. Here's an opportunity I missed last weekend in Columbus, Ohio. It took the computer search engine about a second to find it. How long did it take you? I am sure I would have found it in a correspondence game, but I thought for 22 minutes staring at this position during the tournament and didn't even consider the key move. After all these years, I still don't understand why the difference. Perhaps I was just tired. Sigh.

I will post the answer in February.
