Jan-30-07  Whitehat1963: Zugzwang indeed!
Apr-13-07  Tomlinsky: It is likely that this was one of several games in a match played between the cities from 1842-1845. If this is the case then the notes to the match stated that a sixfold repetition was necessary to claim a draw.

Jul-02-07  sneaky pete: The actual game went 21... Bd6 22.N5e4 Bc7 23.Nc5 Bd6 24.N5e4 Bc7 25.Nc5 Bd6 26.N5e4 Bc7 27.Nc5 Bd3 etc.

Staunton explains:
The same moves, Kt. to Q. B's 5th and B. to Q. B's 2nd, were persisted in for weeks by both parties. Pesth having the first game virtually won, were content to draw this without further trouble. In the end, Paris, as they must lose equally whether they drew or lost the present party, decided on venturing another move.
