Obvious copy/paste problem there but you might as well go ahead and pick all of the games.

  whiteshark: <OCF> No, I only have noticed that <Mame vs Mame> had played 30,31 and 33 moves during their last three Gashimov Memorial games. So I'm curious if there's a numerological pre-arrangement conspiracy going on. I'll keep it that way. ;)

And good luck to the rest of you. :)
