  whiteshark: In 1993, Yermolinsky won the U.S. Chess Championship, tying for first place with Alexander Shabalov.

Alexander Shabalov beat Alexander Ivanov 7 to 1, with 5 draws.

<whiteshark: In 1993, Yermolinsky won the U.S. Chess Championship, tying for first place with Alexander Shabalov.>

So this game had a *huge* impact on the race for first place: Yermo tied for first because he flagged Ivanov when he was about to be checkmated(!) in this game, getting a full point when he should have gotten a zero.

All other things being equal, Shablov would have won clear first had Ivanov executed the mate in 1 in time.
