Feb-10-05  Abaduba: why wasn't this a draw on 3-fold repetition?
Feb-10-05  Dillinger: Apparently neither player claimed the draw. Could be that black had a significant time advantage.

black allowed the cut-off of his ♔ which gave white new chances. There was nothing wrong with <115... Kf6/Kf7/Ke7> or even checks along the b-file, starting <115... Rb3+>
