  An Englishman: Good Evening: This complicated draw deserves a lot more attention than it has received. DeFirmian found the only way White can evade the Seirawan Draw by playing 11.Nxb5 instead of 11.Nxd8. The result is a very long, tense struggle with a material imbalance. The ending boils down to R & 2P vs. 5P. Alburt somehow holds the draw, but I can't help but wonder what the silicon monsters might think.
