  thegoodanarchist: Yeah, I am thinking either time or else he had to leave for some reason.

Maybe his ride had to leave and that was the only way he could get home. I've seen Ehlvest travel with other GMs in a packed car, to save money one would think.

  thegoodanarchist: <Shams> If not in a position to win the tournament, why not?

I don't know what the standings were at that point, but I can say from experience that sometimes masters and above withdraw early if they are in poor form.

One time I had to withdraw from a tournament after my ride got into a verbal disagreement with someone else and decided he didn't want to stay for the second day. And that was after I paid an entry fee!

Don't forget that the GM did not pay an entry fee. This is a Continental Chess event, and Goichberg doesn't charge fees for GMs to enter his tournaments.
