Jul-30-05  Helios727: At least this fixed game went 27 moves.
Aug-01-05  ARTIN: It's only a theory (most probably a wrong one) that this game is fixed. The position is quite drawish.
Aug-12-06  Helios727: Even if the position is quite drawish, thay does not mean the moves were not pre-arranged.

  Marmot PFL: Keres and Geller had plenty of chances to beat each other up in Soviet Ch. and other Russian events. In foreign events like this the idea is to give yourself and your comrade a break and concentrate on beating the non-Soviets.
Aug-13-06  Helios727: Especially when it is the candidates tournament-match to determine who will play for the world championship.

  maxi: The danger in this kind of game is when somebody does something really stupid. What to do then!?
