  triangulation: What happened here! They drew inside theory. why bother even playing the match?

It's illegal not to. And it's understandable for Nisipeanu after starting the tournament with two losses. Black can't deviate without getting worse and a draw with Black is ok anyway.

Jun-19-09  ajile: Lame. White plays to draw specifically.
Jun-19-09  eainca: This is the main knock on the Italian. Don't want to work, head for a quick draw.
Jun-19-09  WhiteRook48: BOO <throws rotten eggs>
Jun-20-09  Mate Hunter: This game should have been drawn two moves earlier according to chess rules, since the same position occured three times.
Jun-22-09  TimPemberton: but the repetition rule is only enforced by the players, they can carry on if they want to

  FSR: I was trying to find a good Giuoco Piano that Nisipeanu had played so I could suggest "Nice Piano" as a pun. But all I found was this lame GM draw and Nisipeanu vs A Aleksandrov, 2004 (essentially the same GM draw). Not very "nice."
