|Apr-13-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <Coleman> Good for you on commenting on this game.|
This is such a fantastic game!
<GOTD: Grandmaster Draw>
IMHO, this game is most definitely an early candidate for GOTY!
It is certainly not boring when two intense fighters like Svidler and Morozevich meet at the board!
|Apr-13-12|| ||voyager39: Amazing game!|
|Apr-13-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: "Grandmaster Draw" has already been used as a pun; therefore I changed it to "The Immortal Draw (of 2012)"|
|Apr-13-12|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: For more of these boring draws see this game collection :)|
Game Collection: Uneventful, everyday, dull draws
|Apr-13-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <SwitchingQuylthulg> Right on!|
|Apr-13-12|| ||Octal: Why not 14 ... Bxe5?|
|Apr-13-12|| ||cro777: <Octal: Why not 14 ... Bxe5?>|
After <14... Bxe5> 15.Bxe5 f5 16.Bc4+ Kf8 17.Qxa8 Rxe5+ 18.Kf1 White stands clearly better.
Best for Black is
<14... Bf5> 15.Qxf5 g6 16.Qe4 Nd7
|Apr-13-12|| ||roninmb: Was it Friday the 13-th?
Did anyone take into account the 13-th move 13. Be3 instead of Bd3 or even Qxa8?
|Apr-14-12|| ||messachess: They produced a classic with this one. Really remarkable.|
|Apr-14-12|| ||nuwanda: i think that was a prearranged draw. probably their way to deal with the "no draw without arbiter"-rule.|
the played fast, the whole game didnt last even two hours. unthinkable if it would have been real...

Commenting on the recent European Individual Championship in Plovdiv and the "no early draws" rule, GM Emil Sutovsky, the President of the Association of Chess Professionals (ACP) said:
"Registering losses for early draws (before 40th move) led to the fact that in the last round of the Championship one third of the games from the top of the table finished before they actually started. They simply set and made 40 [prearranged] moves "
|Apr-15-12|| ||dumbgai: These two have played some crazy games before, e.g.: Svidler vs Morozevich, 2003.|
|Apr-15-12|| ||cro777: GM Sergey Zagrebelny, who commented on the game live for ChessPro, also expressed some doubts about whether the players had really been playing at the board.|
|Apr-15-12|| ||KKDEREK: Wild game!|
|Apr-16-12|| ||Akavall: Great Game! It is games like this that make us love chess.|
|Aug-10-12|| ||fisayo123: Definitely pre-arranged lol,|
