Nov-07-05  Petrocephalon: Vintage Tarrasch: 27.Ng4 would't quite do it, but 27.Bc4 first (covering d5), and 28.Ng4 is ticketyboo.
Nov-07-05  lentil: i'm guessing that the triple-repetition draw rule had not been invented yet!
Nov-07-05  sneaky pete: <lentil> It had and it was used in tournament play, but Spielmann didn't invoke it on this occasion because he was playing for a win. This was a last round game, Spielmann (in poor shape) was trailing with 2,5 from 8 games (Tarrasch had 3,5 from 8) and wanted to win at all cost.
Nov-07-05  DeepBlade: The thing is, threefold repetition draws only apply when claimed.
