Dec-26-06  danielpi: Haha! What do you get when two great positional players meet? Neither has the heart to give up a pawn, and both get locked in.

Nice solid position from Karpov. Great insight from Petrosian that his loose dark squares weren't going to be exploitable. Look at that monster Queen on c2. This may be my favorite draw between these two guys (12 others in the database).
