  wordfunph: At the Chess Olympiad in Havana, GM Dragoljub Ciric adjourned his game against Argentina's Sanguinetti. Ciric's position was bad and everybody expected his defeat. Most critical about Ciric's chances was his team-mate GM Matulovic. When the game resumed, Sanguinetti at some point blundered. When Ciric checkmated him, he exclaimed: "Matů.ulovic!"

unfortunately, i couldn't find the Ciric-Sanguinetti game here in CG.
