So some are more equal than others.

Anyhow, for some reason, I like the pun.

Jul-08-12  lost in space: boring, beside the name of the players. We may find a game were Weiss played Black against Schwarz, playing White?
Jul-08-12  JoergWalter: <lost in space>

J Schwarz vs Max Weiss, 1890

here is one with Weiss playing the black pieces and Schwarz playing the white pieces. Anyone expecting excitement from this change will be terribly disappointed.

  Garech: This is what you get for playing the dull exchange variation in the French!

Capa knew how this is properly done:

Capablanca vs NN, 1918

  TheTamale: Probably the most engrossing GOTD ever published. I much prefer the contest that <Garech> linked to.
Jul-08-12  sorokahdeen: You've got to love this. With all the knife-fight-across-the-board chess-games out there, here you have one that is basically a joke.

Love it!

  Phony Benoni: Played on July 16, 1883, which was a Monday. Maybe that explains it.

  offramp: "July 8th: Schwarz against Weiss.
Would any sane man play through this game twice?"
Jul-08-12  JoergWalter: and here is Schwarz against Schwarz.
and Schwarz won

A Schwarz vs J Schwarz, 1880

Jul-08-12  MikeB20: Amazing.
Weiss(white in German) was playing the white pieces; and Shwarz(black in German) was playing the black pieces. Very amusing game ... and a creepy weird coincidence.
Jul-08-12  lemaire90: Boring.
Jul-08-12  Cemoblanca: Well, it doesn't happen every day that "Weiss" plays against "Schwarz"!! :D
Jul-08-12  weisyschwarz: <Cemoblanca> in Germany it happens all the time. :-)
Jul-08-12  solskytz: Spy vs. Spy comes to mind...
Jul-08-12  LoveThatJoker: Hilarious yet interesting draw!

  gezafan: Those who call this game boring are jealous that none of their games was ever game of the day.

They wish they could play as well as these fellows.

Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: Bishops of opposite colors and echoed pawn structures...could it be anything BUT a draw?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: This may well be the perfect game. I have yet to see any computer improvements.
Jul-09-12  JoergWalter: <MikeB20: Weiss(white in German)>

maybe I'm pedantic but my feeling tells me it has to be :

Weiss (white in english) or
White (Weiss in german).

Not exactly. I have 133 that they haven't used.

<FSR> charge them higher.
