Dec-11-02  refutor: they had grandmaster draws is 1788?! ;)

  Sneaky: Even stranger, it seems like Black can win, just by "working the pin." Look:

14...Bxd5 15. cxd5 Bc5 16. Bc3 Rxd5 17.Re4 Nf6 -+

Or am I missing something?

  Sneaky: OK, White has Rd1 instead of Re4, that might work out a little better. I still like Black's chances.
Jul-02-04  acirce: This is the first draw under 20 moves in the database.
Jul-03-04  vonKrolock: it's highly probable that what we have here is a game fragment, found somewhere whith the remark "and the game was drawn" etc (still subject to confirmation)
May-24-05  sneaky pete: Incomplete game, probably drawn after many mistakes. Black DID win the near duplicate (difference with this version is 14.cxd5 Bxd5 0-1) D Bowdler vs De Beaurevoir, 1788, but this might be a mistake. The Oxford Encylopedia gives 14.cxd5 Bxd5 ... ? 1/2-1/2 meaning: remaining moves are missing, game ended drawn.
Feb-11-08  just a kid: This is a win for Black!Why did he take a draw?
Oct-26-08  Kiborg007: Missing only queen and few pawns, other pieces are still there. It's a lot of combinations in game for both.
Jul-24-09  just a kid: I think part of this game might be missing.
