  keypusher: According to an old column by Andrew Soltis, both White and Black inserted an extra move in their scoresheets during the first session. Bukic sealed the winning Rc6 after long thought in the belief that it was his 41st move. Once that error was corrected, it was determined that White had lost on time!

  Benzol: Apparently the mistake was discovered during the adjournment. An appeal was made against the time forfeiture but was rejected by a special committee. A bit hard on Bukic but that's chess.
Jan-28-08  nescio: I understood at the time there was a reason for the appeal. Apparently Ljubojevic had seen that his opponent had recorded a move twice and had written a double move on his own scoresheet as well. When Bukic had made what he thought was his 40th, he checked Ljubojevic's scoresheet and saw the same move number there. So he took his time for his next move, but when his flag fell Ljubojevic claimed the game. The player's committee (Larsen, Karpov and Timman, if I remember correctly) gave Ljubojevic the point, but emphasized that his behaviour should be considered very unsporting. I think Larsen's opinion was that Ljubojevic should be kicked out of the tournament, but his was a minority vote. Timman commented afterward that it was really a shame that a very strong player like Ljubojevic seemed to have adhered to the practices of Matulovic, Gheorghiu, etc.

To Ljubojevic's credit, I have never heard of an incident like this again in his career.

  wordfunph: Lesson: Never ever rely on the
opponent's scoresheet!
Oct-11-11  Skakalec: I heard the version where Bukic in Zeitnot looked at Ljuba's sheet and put the lines (you are not obliged to note when in Zeitnot, dvs. less than 5 min on clock) on his sheet. The thing was that Ljuba had written twice a set of moves. (on purpose ? encouraged by Enver's frequent eyewinks towords his sheet?)

When Enver didn't make 40th move in time, Ljuba "suddenly" relized that he noted wrongly :-)
