  fredthebear: A stylish GM draw that started out looking like a fight. The White queen on the long diagonal looks too aggressive but keeps Black's dark squared king's bishop at home to protect g7. Black then exchanges queens and frees the bishop from guard duty to collect the loose c5-pawn. Had either chose to play on, Black would have the bishop pair in a queenless middlegame.

Something tells me that their biographical photos are not so current anymore. Back in 2000, I'd have settled for the quick draw, too.
