|Mar-27-18|| ||Domdaniel: As they're not allowed to *offer* draws before move 30, this is a clever way of sharing the point. Has it been played before?|
|Mar-27-18|| ||chancho: A draw and then go lick the wounds type of thing.|
|Mar-27-18|| ||PJs Studio: I wonder how poorly they ARE actually playing(?) Just because they didnít score well against 2800(!!) level players... |
Because these guys eat under 2700ís for breakfast.
|Mar-27-18|| ||tpstar: Handy draw line!
|Mar-27-18|| ||Sally Simpson: Aronian could not avoid last place, he had nothing to play for.|
He still gets 17,000 euros, which is off the top of my head is £14,000 or $20,000 (approx) which is not too bad.
|Mar-27-18|| ||Petrosianic: It's been done before. But any time there's a rule preventing draw offers in place, there should also be a rule against repeating a position for the third time. The person about to do it should be prohibited from making that move, otherwise the 30 move rule is pointless.|

Yeah, well getting out of Berlin isn't as hard as it used to be.
|Mar-27-18|| ||RookFile: It's fine. Nobody cared about this game anyway.|
|Mar-28-18|| ||Domdaniel: <Petrosianic) - <there should also be a rule against repeating a position for the third time.)|
The problem, as I'm sure you see, is that some triple repetitions are quite artificial - and so can be constructed by the players - but other positions can be deducted.
