The Greatest Draws Ever Played
Compiled by Calchexas
--*--

The collection is just what it sounds like. I have a few criteria and points first.

1) This is the greatest DRAWS ever played. Therefore, there are no decisive games in this collection.

2) No Grandmaster Draws. However, just because it's really funny, I'm putting that one draw between Janosevic and Geller in here.

3) No, I'm not Vladimir Kramnik. Though I wouldn't complain if I was.

4) I used to have a lot of criteria here, but since that restricts me, I'm just gonna put whatever really cool draws I find in here.
