  wordfunph: if i recall it right, Bobby Ang was quoted on this Xiangzhi-Paragua game..

"Would you believe that GM Mark Paragua resigned in a drawn position in a crucial game? In round 8 of the 2006 Turin Olympiad he faced GM Bu Xiangzhi of China on top board. As Bu recounts, Mark had defeated him in the 1998 World Youth Rapid Championship at Disneyland de France and won the title."

Mar-13-20  Howard: According to NIC, 59...Nf7+ would have drawn, so Black's resignation was apparently an error...

...on the other hand, 52.h5! would have won, according to NIC.
