Quick Draw?

Hello, all. In one of the tournaments in which I am playing, a game has been agreed drawn on the third move. I'm not saying that there's anything underhanded about it. But I am trying to understand what would lead to such a situation. I'd appreciate if someone could enlighten me. Are certain openings recognized as nearly certain draws? Could drawng situations be recognized so early in a game? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Lawrence.

What game are you talking about ? I guess many other reasons can lead to a draw...

Hello, Thibault

It's game 5990. Again, I want to stress that I'm not implying any sort of foul play. I just don't understand a draw at such an early stage.

Hmm... I suppose this draw was just satisfying both players, saving energy and ratings.
