Oct-07-12  smaragdus: First!
Oct-07-12  messachess: It's already over! What was the time control?
Oct-07-12  jancotianno: 11 draws by Khalifman :O
Oct-07-12  shivasuri4: <messachess>, as per TWIC, the time control was 15 minutes for the game, with a 10-second increment after each move.
Oct-07-12  shivasuri4: 6 of the 11 games Khalifman played ended in less than 20 moves, with the other 5 lasting over 45 moves, with a 110 move game. That's a curious all-or-nothing approach!
