  cu8sfan: This game was played in the 2005 British Championship which was won by Jonathan Rowson. He was losing in this game. After move 33., Greet was down to his final couple of minutes and decided to repeat a pair of moves before playing on. After White's 35. ♕e6+ Rowson wrote 36.♔g7 on his scoresheet and claimed a draw by repetition. A bit surprised, Greet shook Rowson's hand and agreed. Only later did both players find out that this wasn't actually a draw by repetition as in the first instance (before 32.♕xe5+ there's a pawn on the board which has gone in the later "repetitions").

Note: Neither John Emms nor I are insinuating that Rowson was cheating and knew it wasn't a repetition. Apparently both players failed to realize it.

This very much reminds me of Morozevich vs Carlsen, 2006.
