  Strack: even though this looks like a fair equal position, I think white is a little bit better.

  tamar: The little seen Hyper-Decelerated Dragol Variation.
Mar-26-10  ckeckmate: <aurlero> what Fischer is mentioning about draw is that having white side is not enough to win if black plays it perfect
Aug-12-10  smitha1: May this should be a Sunday puzzle: White to play and draw.

  rrrttt: Stoy, the players might've agreed to the draw earlier and signed the slip like that.

  OhioChessFan: <yesnomaybe: Would be a gentle introduction to Guess-the-Move.>

AJ would complain to the admins he didn't get full credit for guessing 1. e4 and LoveThatJoker would claim he got a higher score than average.

May-22-12  Abdel Irada: <whiterook48>: The Sodium Attack (1. ♘a3) is indeed invincible against health-conscious opponents who don't want to risk hypertension. However, it fails spectacularly against fast-food aficionados, who eat worse things for breakfast (also lunch, dinner and multiple calorie-rich snacks and between-meal meals) every day.

  tamar: The classic post about this game was by Kenkaku:

<Perhaps this is the ideal form of chess (in a Platonic sense). Janosevic and Geller just had the courage to turn and face the fire. The imperfect shadows of chess have been expelled!...>

Apr-17-15  fenno: If you want to replay this game in a tournament as a white player, you have to consider the possibility that the opponent may call the arbiter to judge if the draw offer was unreasonable, distractive, annoying or noise introducing. It is a risk, because if the arbiter gets arbitrary, you can be even expulsed from the tournament!

Article 9: The drawn game
9.1 b.
If the rules of a competition allow a draw agreement the following apply: 1.A player wishing to offer a draw shall do so after having made a move on the chessboard and before stopping his clock and starting the opponent’s clock. An offer at any other time during play is still valid but Article 12.6 must be considered. No conditions can be attached to the offer. In both cases the offer cannot be withdrawn and remains valid until the opponent accepts it, rejects it orally, rejects it by touching a piece with the intention of moving or capturing it, or the game is concluded in some other way.

Article 12: The conduct of the players
12.6
It is forbidden to distract or annoy the opponent in any manner whatsoever. This includes unreasonable claims, unreasonable offers of a draw or the introduction of a source of noise into the playing area.

12.7
Infraction of any part of Articles 12.1 to 12.6 shall lead to penalties in accordance with Article 13.4

Article 13: The role of the Arbiter
13.4
The arbiter can apply one or more of the following penalties: •warning
•increasing the remaining time of the opponent
•reducing the remaining time of the offending player
•declaring the game to be lost
•reducing the points scored in the game by the offending party •increasing the points scored in the game by the opponent to the maximum available for that game •expulsion from the event.

  Alex Schindler: Ah, it's AA000, Common Opening, Sloth Defense. Under time pressure, white failed to meet the sloth defense with anything more than a lazy copycat approach, wasting the first move advantage and sharing the zero'th move advantage, and the point.

  Alex Schindler: Stockfish recommends e4 e5 nf3 nc6 as a possible continuation with a slight advantage for white, but Rybka considers the position drawish,justifying the players' decision not to play on.

Most especially when playing into the morass known as the Alapin Gambit in the Exchange line. Try as the Kosintseva sisters might, they wind up with a perpetual, every time.

  diagonal: Maybe both players were thinking of <Chess is a great game. No matter how good one is, there is always somebody better. No matter how bad one is, there is always somebody worse> ok, let's sign draw agreement :)
