  stoy: This game's result comes from the disgraceful enforcement of an absurd rule. How does anybody know that the game was not "thrown"? Disgusting!

  tamar: <stoy> makes a good point.

The unintended consequence of the rule is that it is easier to affect the course of a tournament, and with little chance of being caught.

  Check It Out: I think the white player was a few minutes late to the board and so got dq'd due to a new rule where you HAVE to be on time or forfeit.
Aug-10-09  Dredge Rivers: I guess they preferred Chinese Checkers! :)

Back in the day, there was a strong master I played many events with who routinely showed up a few minutes late for the Sunday morning round. Bet he has mended his ways if he still plays.

If I recall correctly, the player had to be seated at the board when the arbiter started the clock or else the player forfeited.

I believe that Hou Yifan forfeited a game this tournament because she got up to get a pencil at the TD's table, so even though she was in the playing room and in plain sight of the board, she was forfeited because she not sitting at the board at the *exact* time the arbiter pressed the clock.

  notyetagm: Yep, I remembered correctly.
