By chance I found a game played on RHP 2010 that matched the first 22 moves
a GM game played in 1969. (it's in the 1969 Informator.)
The Black RHP player deviated first on move 22 and was mated three moves later.
It is the only game I can find anywhere with this line.
(It's going on the next blog, I'm still looking at it. I'm not quite agreeing
...[text shortened]... any of you guys had a game on here that followed
a known GM game for longer than 22 moves.
Here is my first long "theoretical" game that I can remember:
Chizza was rated highly at the time and had even mentioned a simul win over Judit Polgar! Admittedly, there is not much to the game, but considering how confusing my opening book is, I consider it a moral victory. (The book includes chapters, sections,sequels, and other names instead of just letters and numbers!) The game follows 17 moves, and then 2 more after transposing moves 18 and 19 (19 moves of theory). The game is Leisebein-Gutman Correspondence 1999 in the book 4. ... Qh4 in the Scotch Game by Gutman.
I can trump this with a more recent game however ...
The next game follows 28 moves of theory, all the way to where the two GM's agreed to a draw. The game is Ljubojevic-Petrosian, Milan 1975.
On move 29, my opponent offered a draw. I told him that I really thought it was very drawish but wanted to make a few (more) moves before abandoning it. (He was rated a little less, and I thought I should at least play a little chess.)Two moves later, he played Nd5 and dropped a pawn.
