  patzer2: For a rather pleasing GM draw, look at 9. Ng5! in this game which leads to a quick perpetual.
Mar-30-05  Saph: You're right, patzer2. That's a very cool draw, indeed. It's the sort of thing I want to try.
Mar-16-06  Whitehat1963: So why did the higher ranking player behind the white pieces want a perpetual?
Mar-28-06  DAL9000: <So why did the higher ranking player with the white pieces want a draw?>

Well, the game score says this was in the 9th round. Maybe he had a 2-point lead over the rest of the field in a 10-round tournament, or something.

Apr-12-09  WhiteRook48: Drawing without a queen
Jul-03-09  WhiteRook48: normally I would play 9 h3
