Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-07-13  solskytz: Both sides look safe enough. A draw is the logical result, as even Carlsen would agree

  Robed.Bishop: If "both sides look safe enough" after seven moves is the standard for assessing a draw, then perhaps they should have agreed to a draw before the first move when both sides were also equally safe.
Feb-08-13  solskytz: True - this would certainly save them a lot of trouble
Feb-08-13  BUNA: This was a last round game of the Keres memorial qualifier. Khalifman needed a draw and qualified with +4 (out of 7 rounds).
Feb-08-13  ughaibu: As the last move was played by Shvyrjov, I guess Shvyrjov offered the draw, and if Shvyrjov offered the draw, I guess Shvyrjov stood better. Anyway, for the other side of Shvyrjov, have a look at this: V Ryzhkov vs I Shvyrjov, 2012 But wait, on move 83, wasn't that another example of Shvyrjov's generosity?
