Nov-17-04  Bobak Zahmat: Fantastic equal match between two great masters. From the start till finish a perfectly draw.
Nov-17-04  drukenknight: I agree, people in those days were concerned that chess would die out due to all these draws. Isnt this the case whenever two great players are in peak form, like Spassky/Petrosian? That match was filled w/ draws too.

Also some closeups. Apparently, one of the clocks went up for auction:
