  TheAlchemist: Since none of the games from the 2002 Mitropa Cup in Leipzig are in the database (I only have the ones played by the Slovenian team, who won the event, from a magazine), I thought I'd post this curious finish from Grosar's game in the 3rd round against Slovakian Ladislav Kotan here...

<I don't exactly remember how it went on here. We didn't keep score anymore, but it went something like this: somehow I didn't manage to promote my b-pawn, white was left with a rook, black with a rook and knight, and both with 15 seconds left on the clock. The arbiter was sitting next to our table - this is very important!

At that moment the Slovak played an illegal move, but without a reaction from the arbiter. When we were both down to about 4 seconds I won white's rook with a discovered check and my opponent, in complete disbelief, simply pressed my clock and held it until my flag fell! The arbiter was watching the whole thing and simply declared the game as a draw. I protested, but in vain, he wouldn't change his decision.

Even though I could have avoided the whole mess (note: he missed a few better continuations in the endgame), I think I was wronged. You be te judge.>
