Feb-26-04  suenteus po 147: The story goes that Olte was feeling desperate, under time pressure, and finally realized he was lost after the 35th move. Instead of resigning, more out of desperation than anything, he played 36.h4!? Incredibly, it was Nichols who resigned on the spot. He extended his hand, and Olte had the wherewithal to actually ask his opponent if he was, in fact, resigning. Nichols said yes, and they shook hands. Nichols had seen ahead and realized that he couldn't stop Olte from queening a pawn. However, he didn't look far enough, by only one ply. After the game, in the post-mortem analysis, Olte showed Nichols: 36...g2+ 37.Kg1 gxf5 38.h5 Kg3 39.h6 f4 40.h7 f3 41.h8/Q f2#! An amazing story that just goes to show that not resigning gives your opponent the opportuinity to do it instead!
