Fusilli: <K> Yeah! Don't even ask me how I ended up winning this, but I remember two things:
a) It was my birthday, so I was quite happy to win. Called it birthday gift to myself. (Which reminds me of another thing... I will post something later on M Sana vs R Yakobashvili, 2009)
b) He was a bit strange. He had headphones on, and I don't know what he was listening to, but he kept giggling, and giggling loudly. He was shushed by our neighbors, and at some point I got fed up and went to talk to a TD. The TD called him aside and asked him to be quiet. But it happened again, and I complained to the TD again. The TD them gave him a stern warning and asked him to take the headphones off (if memory serves, this was years ago). Ah, yeah, the TD also took some time off his clock and gave it to me, because I complained he was affecting my concentration (he surely was!)
After that, he started to play badly!
Altogether, I think he used 20-25 minutes for the whole game, while I used almost my 2 hours to move 40.
I saw him again at the Miami Open a couple years ago. He did badly, and I noticed again that he was using very little time in his games. But then there was the blitz tournament, where he did great. In fact, I think he won the blitz, ahead of several titled players, including GM Becerra. In one game he played 1.e4, his opponent played 1...c5, then he played 2.Nf3 and his opponent adjusted the pawn on c5 without saying anything. Markovic demanded that he moved the c-pawn because he had touched it. (Those kinds of things absolutely disgust me.) (The guy couldn't believe it, but he obliged.)
