Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-26-05  Jim Bartle: Lots of action between moves 18 and 67...
Nov-26-05  Professeur Y: Indeed, it's a bit like looking at growing grass.
Nov-26-05  810609: All Ponomariov games in Bilbao were bizarre (forgeting about en passant rule against Fritz, "king walk" d7-c7-b7-a7 against Hydra), but this is simply hilarious...
Nov-26-05  Udit Narayan: <Jim Bartle> LOL!
Dec-01-05  Whitehat1963: <Lots of action between moves 18 and 67...> More like up to move 80!
Apr-27-06  soberknight: This game represents one of the solutions to the problem of "grandmaster draws". The position is essentially dead by move 30, but from Junior's perspective, he's a computer, he doesn't care anyway, so what the heck, he keeps playing until the cows come home...
Apr-27-06  acirce: If GM games started looking like this, fans would crave for a rule enforcing short draws.
Nov-06-07  pawnofdoom: Wasn't there the 50 move rule after move 18 to 68? I bet Ruslan must have taken forever to make all 50 of those moves. Really well thought out
Nov-06-07  RookFile: The funny thing about this is, if black had a slightly better king position at the end, he probably would have actually won this game, as his knight can go to both white and black squares, but the bishop is bad for white.
Feb-08-09  WhiteRook48: isn't the black bishop just shuffling back and forth senselessly
