May-09-07  TommyC: Is it definitely true, does anyone know, that Bellón has not offered a draw since 1978:~


- ?

Any more details as to why not? And which game and move saw his last offer of a draw, all those years ago?

Jan-31-09  waustad: I don't know who suggested it, but at Gib-Tel '09, he played a 10 move draw with white against Stefanova. Maybe he had to babysit. His wife was playing an 84 mover beating Jovanka Houska.
