  Gypsy: <"How did the game end?" -- the arbiter asked Yusupov.

"It was drawn."

"But I heard him resign!"

"That is not important. I offered a draw, and the position is in fact drawn" -- the grandmaster replied.

As the result, a pieceful outcome of this extremely tense fight was agreed, and Yusupov reached the Semi-Finals of the World Chapionship Candidates tournament for the third time in succession.

"Of course, I could have played on until my oponent's flag fell, but why spoil an interesting game by senseless moves in time-trouble?" -- Artur explained to me later. >

Apr-13-09  Jim Bartle: Ivanchuk tried to resign, as he was about to flag, but Yusupov said he had already offered a draw, so a draw it was.
