  Domdaniel: <sbevan, whiteshark> Thank you both. I decided to use my initiative and look up the other game, rather than wasting everyone's time with silly questions. But thanks anyway.

  Domdaniel: This is also heading for a draw, isn't it? Perhaps -- after some tournaments with high levels of decisive games -- we're due an old-fashioned drawfest.
Sep-23-13  chessdgc2: Domdaniel: Then you're missin' out...some of my biggest laughs come from answers to my silly questions :)
Sep-23-13  Strongest Force: I offer draw :)
Sep-23-13  chessdgc2: Strongest Force: GAME OVER, DRAWN...It5 isw now 2:00 a.m.
Sep-23-13  chessdgc2: Something tells me that Wing Wong, or Wang Dong, is trying to win this

  Domdaniel: Hey ho. Watching the grass grow, listening to paint dry ... this is just too much excitement.
Sep-23-13  chessdgc2: Wang Ho, Ho, Ho is on the war path....
Sep-23-13  chessdgc2: Neither player has a single piece across the 50-yardline
Sep-23-13  chessdgc2: Oh yes! I forgot about Wang's b5-N...it's inside Carjane's territory...not bad (yawn()

  Domdaniel: This may yet turn out to be one of those games where a player mysteriously drifts downhill from a level position and winds up lost ... but which player will it be? And why won't he just offer a draw?

  whiteshark: The steakes for Caruana couldn't be higher.
Sep-23-13  chessdgc2: Domdaniel: chess can be very deceitful and this is why a draw wouldn't be offered...as for which player would "drift", I'd imagine it would be Caruana as he has the biggest number of losing drawn endings...Wang Hao will win in a second if given the slightest edge and this is why he won't offer a draw...Caruana is a hard one to read...he played 1...a5 so he can move his a-R
Sep-23-13  chessdgc2: But White didn't like Black's N at c5 and attacked it with 1. Rd5...Black had 1...b6 or 1...Ne4 which he chose the latter...now, the position is becoming very murky and unclear...a big possibility a play will slip
Sep-23-13  chessdgc2: Wang could opt to move his Nto d6, trade his N & B for Black's R & P. Of course, this isn't preferable in many cases, but it sometimes wins in endgames due to the R being able to take undefended pawns and eventually promote...I'm wondering if Wang will try this!
Sep-23-13  Ulhumbrus: White's pieces enjoy a lead in development. 31 Kf3 increases the lead.
Sep-23-13  Thanh Phan: That simplified things with no rooks now, bishops opposite colour

  Domdaniel: Uh, CG? I don't suppose there's *another* game worth looking at?
Sep-23-13  chessdgc2: Domdaniel: Well, the third time is not always a charm :)

  Domdaniel: <chessdgc2> True. But we can hope...
