May-01-06  Ivan23: Why is White repeating moves here, seems to me he has an edge.
May-01-06  Marmot PFL: <Ivan23> What's your suggestion? I don't see a way to improve the position.
May-01-06  Ivan23: When I said "an edge" I didn't ment that White's winning, but rather that he can play without almost any risk of losing and some practical chances. I'd play Nd3 here and when rook moves Rb7.
Oct-25-07  Brown: <Ivan23> and when black answers 1.Nd3 with ...Rc3, what do you play?

<After I made my move, Anatoly asked me if I'd like a draw. "No," I said, "I'm still playing." "No," Anatoly replied. "I'm claiming a draw." Whoops.>
