Aug-29-04  Giancarlo: Care giving some anaylisis on why it was a good game?
Aug-30-04  Knight13: <Gaincarlo> Why do you care? And why you wanna know? I think it's a good game. It's not like everyone thinks it is a good game.

  Chessical: <Knight13> A series of posts simply repeating the stock phase "Good game", or using made-up words, are no more than worthless grafitti. They contribute nothing; they advance no discussion, and aggravate others by swamping out worthwhile observations and analysis. You have been told this before: please post when you have something material to say.

  optimal play: Good game.

But don't ask me why ;)

Although I notice that Berger played 3...Be7 (Charousek / Petrosian variation) 9 years before Charousek and 72 before Petrosian, even though it does transpose after 4...Nf6

Maybe itís a good game simply because neither of these top-class players made any significant mistake even after more than 50 moves?

37.g4 Blackburne decided he might still get a win

40...Re8 Berger just wanted a draw

Blackburne has an extra pawn, but with opposite-coloured bishops, can't force a win.
