  nasmichael: At what point is there a slight advantage for either side--or said in another way, where could a modern idea diverge from the text to improve winning chances for one side? I like looking at draw games to see "what might have been". At a crossroads of two choices, perhaps the other, equally valid, choice would have been the better one for that particular position.

May-17-09  WhiteRook48: I like 5. d4! It's the Central Fork Trick ( 1. e4 e5 2. Nc3 Nf6 3. Bc4 Nxe4 4 Nxe4 d5) reversed!
Mar-20-16  zanzibar: The tb(*) gives the draw after move 92.Kb2 like this:

<Die Partie wurde auf Vorschlag des Anziehenden jetzt endlich als remis

which google translates as:

<The game was at the suggestion of Attracting finally as draw canceled.>

Can we determine who offered the draw from the above?

(*) G-59 153/167

Mar-21-16  luftforlife: <zanzibar>: "Now, finally, the game ended in a draw by mutual agreement."

"des Anziehenden" connotes those consenting to or governed by a pulling, a tightening, a contraction, or an attraction (such as gravitational pull); -- and so the players came together, and finally agreed to call the game a draw.

The phrase "auf Vorschlag des Anziehenden" appears in several coeval Veit & Co. publications; it was employed in the day not only by Emil Schallopp (here and elsewhere), but also by Curt von Bardeleben and Hermann von Gottschall. I have cross-citations and links if you would like them.
