Look at this game. What's so exciting? When two Super GMs play it is usually like watching paint dry, water evaporate, or pigs sleeping. I've heard it all: It's because they play so well, the beauty is in the defense not the attack, WHATEVER. I've been to enough tournaments to tell you that nobody crowds around a drawn game. So if your table is drawing a crowd, somebody is losing. I will admit that once in awhile these Super GMs will bust the others position. But more often than not, the games up in a draw. (Unless you go back to pre-Kasparov old age eras)
