why split the point? the war has just begun :)

Mar-05-12  nanobrain: How is he related to the actor Ruel Bernal? Or the director Ishmael Bernal?
Mar-05-12  Iskubadayb: Black must have offered the draw after Qd7, and since it's the Olympiad, the team Capt decides on proper action after discussion with the player. Just guessing.

Baka Tita nya si Ishmael hihi. I doubt it. :)

  Phony Benoni: All four games in this match were drawn. This is by far the shortest, so it is probably not a case of a "package deal" where the results are agreed simultaneously.

As suggested, the team captain was probably just satisfied with the way the match was going. You can quickly find the games here by clicking on the result:

Mar-05-12  Iskubadayb: Very sharp observation, PB.

  Penguincw: Black seems to be a little cramped, but too solid for white to penetrate.

  wordfunph: white is clearly better after 23...Qd7

no blood no glory and "package deal" prevailed :)

Mar-05-12  bubuli55: An offer of a draw here from a no push over GM is most acceptable. It may have set the tone of the match. To risk the 1/2 pt versus Hungary would have been unwise because that may all be the difference in the match. I have not seen the other 3 games but even with a win here, Hungary would have pushed very hard for wins in the other 3 boards.

  wordfunph: <Iskubadayb> <bubuli55> <nanobrain> do you know of this guy Eduardo Bernal? Looks like a GM-strength 2600+ player huh?!
Mar-06-12  nanobrain: His moves here have some similarities with the young Paulo Bersamina today.

What do you think Mysql?

Mar-06-12  bubuli55: I haven't met him. I haven't seen him. Hopefully someday Id buy him a cup of coffee :)
Mar-08-12  kardopov: Bernal is a good player. He could even get better if he continued playing. I'm very much perplex why he abruptly quits playing chess.
