Dec-16-19  Hawkman: 8 moves. I love the fighting spirit from both players.

  master8ch: I get how two players, under certain circumstances, may agree to a quick draw. What I can't understand is's insistence on wasting my time even more than they wasted theirs.

I'm grateful that posts all the games from top tournaments and we can decide for ourselves if the game is interesting or not. (It's "Freedom of Choice" vs. "Government Oversight Regulation" and FTB opts for liberty/public safety almost every time.) Of course, many viewers anticipate what's coming like any good chess player does. They don't bother to look at 8-move draws, but there was member commentary, so let's have a peak.

Frankly, I'm not familiar with this line. There might be something up the sleeve. The bayonet continuation is worth contemplation.
