Why? The final position is roughly even or maybe slightly better for white but Bishops of opposite colours make chance to play that to win from any side quite small. Ivanovic was undoubtedly satisfied with draw against extremely strong and dangerous opponent and Kasparov had no objective reason to try to continue there.

Aug-29-06  percyblakeney: Bugojno 1982 was maybe the best tournament of Kasparov's career that far, he won with a 1.5 point margin (and a +6 score) in a field containing among others Polugaevsky, Petrosian, Andersson, Ljubojevic, Spassky, Larsen, Timman, Huebner...

  Honza Cervenka: <percyblakeney> Yes. Btw, this game was played in the second round. Ivanovic lost in the first round a game to Najdorf by terrible blunder in last move before time control. See B Ivanovic vs Najdorf, 1982. This can explain his early proposal of draw here though he could continue without risk in play. As I have written before, Kasparov had no reason to refuse a peace proposal of white.
Feb-01-07  IMDONE4: i dont c why white would agree to a draw here... he seems in little danger of losing the position, and in fact has a small edge
