  offramp: I don't know why Zukertort agreed to a draw here. He is a pawn up and he has the opposite coloured bishops with the queens on. He must have been pretty tired, though.

  acirce: Opposite coloured bishops is a draw factor here since there is no attack. Looks like an easy draw.

  offramp: Certainly any winning attempt would be hugely time consuming and probably rather dull to execute. And if one advances the pawns in front of one's king one can suddenly find oneself checkmated. Anyway; selon my last post - I *do* now know why JZ agreed a draw here. Thanks, Acirce.
