Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-28-05  Resignation Trap: Gelfand: "After this game both players received a letter from the tournament director Luis Rentero with a warning that we would be financially penalised for making a quick draw. I still don't know if this was a publicity stunt or if he simply wrote it before looking for the game."
Jul-30-05  Giearth: If my memory serves me correctly, the tournament rule were: No draw are permissible. This was made 'to bring out the best play' of each player in that tournament. But the game was so good that other players in that tournament requested these two players to be exempted from the punishment...
Jul-20-09  DCP23: Another Linares fixture, Leontxo Garcia, has shown time and again that he's an ignorant and unreasonable man where draws are concerned. Turns out Luis Rentero is too. Must be something in the water over there.

How could anyone fault players for games like this one?

Jul-21-09  returnoftheking: maybe they could have repeated moves a bit longer, I don't think there is an other way to continue without losing for either side.
