  refutor: funny how some things never change ;)
Jul-26-05  Medusa: A beatifull masterpiece by two of the greatest draw masters of history: the Classical Draw Champion Vladimir Drawmnik and Vishi Drawanand.
Jul-26-05  810609: <Medusa> if are you looking for draws under 20 moves, be so kind, check http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches... :-)
Jul-26-05  tnrao: This link is cool. Wonder how you picked it up, 810609?
Jul-26-05  810609: <tnrao> if you know what are you looking for, no problem :) I just set on http://www.chessgames.com/index.html "Player is" name Tal, "Number of moves is" <=no more than 20, and "Result is" draw. Link is, what you get.

  offramp: Here is another major offender; the late Peter Szekely has 107 games in the database and 38 of them match <810609>'s criteria: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches...
Jul-27-05  810609: <offramp> nice one, too. <Medusa> has as favourite players in profile Kasparov, Topalov and Tal, so I only wanted to show him/her that all that glitters isnīt gold (*cough* Tal *cough*) and Kramnik is not the one and only who played "beatifull masterpieces" :-)
Jul-27-05  Medusa: I know tal made those draws, and maybe 200 more, but Mikhail Tal style was pretty exciting with all those speculative sacrifices, but kramnik style its very boring, altough he has good games.
Oct-02-05  Athenea: 14 years old Kramnik making a short draw, and how well he learned and improved that habit!!!!!!!

Now he plays more draws, are shorter ones and are more boring.

Jun-21-06  Topzilla: <refutor: funny how some things never change ;)>

Wrong, Anand is the second best player in the world, but Drawmnik keeps being Drawmnik.

Jun-22-06  SniperOnG7: Just like Topzilla keeps being Topzilla...
Oct-14-06  larsenfan: < 810609 >

If you want to know a real figther, look for the number of short draws by larsen...

Jul-01-08  Abejorral: Young Kramnik, his draw master abilities where shown since his first games....
Aug-14-08  Blaken91: Its pretty funny. You guys make fun of these two players but both of them could crush any of you even if you got queen odds. How many of you could draw a grandmaster?
Jan-08-10  SilentCapa: Well said !
Mar-13-10  mistreaver: Yes of course it's very easy to bash Kramnik but no1 remembers some of his great fighting games

Kasparov vs Kramnik, 1996

Kramnik vs Kasparov, 1994

Topalov vs Kramnik, 2008 to name a few

And calling Anand Drawanand is just patently ridiculous

Anand vs Lautier, 1997

Anand vs Kasparov, 1995

oh and a very "boring draw" of course
Anand vs Topalov, 2005
