  PhilFeeley: I wonder why the famous draw at the Student Olympiad isn't here? Perhaps it's apocryphal?

<Jazzer32: There is very interesting anecdote about that student Olympiad 1972. USA played vs West Germany and on first board Robert Huebner had white pieces vs Ken Rogoff. Huebner played 1.c4 and offered draw. Rogoff accepted and they signed papers. Next day in newspaper is declared that they break world record (for shortest chess game - of course). But, chief referee of Olympics (Shaytar)called that unsporting behaviour and order them to play new, normal, game. Next day they played again and that, normal, game looked like this: 1.Nf3 Nf6 2. Ng1 Ng8 3.Nf3 Nf6 4. Ng1 Ng8. It was threefold repetition - so it was draw again.

Audience was confused, because all pieces were on their starting positions. Players signed papers again, but Shaytar warned young players that they will be kicked out of tourney if they dont play normal game. So, the next they the played another "normal" game.. real piece of art..>

The next day they are forced to play a third time. That game isn't here either. Read all about it on the Rogoff page.
