  Sally Simpson: A nice coincidence here spotted by Paul Motwani in 'H.O.T. Chess'.

in 1995 Andrei Sokolov (note it is not Ivan Sokolov as in the game on this page) played Ivo Hristov Donev in Bern.

They reached this position (with Black to play)

After 12 moves from a Petroff Defence.

It is the exact same position as this game (a Q.G.A.) after 10 moves (with Black to play)
