zanzibar: <YoungEd> (who might not be so young anymore)...
It's a good observation, and there's a story behind this game, unremarked on <CG> (well, till now)...
This game was adjourned at this point (the time control was 20 moves / hour) because Alapin claimed a time forfeit against Noa.
The arbiters ruled against him because of a rather dodgy claim that Noa had forgotten to punch his clock at some point in the game, and therefore deserved more time.
Understandably, Alapin was miffed by this, but supposedly reconciled himself to resume the game, until Tarrasch was accorded a win on time in some other game.
It was too much for Alapin, and he withdrew from the match, never to resume this game. This despite having a pretty good score.
(Well, if Fischer can storm off with the lead from Sousse, I suppose Alapin can drop out from Dresden in second)
So Alapin's 9th game, this one, has no score, and <CG> should set the PGN to have result "*".
Since there were 18-players in the tournament, and Alapin dropped out before playing half (17/2=8.5, he needed to play 9 players), all of Alapin's games were nullified, as concerned the tournament results.
All this comes from Tinsley's BCM report.
