  HeMateMe: wins a piece with 36...N-f4+. Was this a rapids event, with no time increments?
Aug-13-12  ZZpatzer: Some google-fu showed a tourney timetable for this event with two rounds per day with 6 hours between, so probably not a rapid event, but 36. Rd3 looks like a real stinker...
Aug-13-12  diagonal: <<Was this a rapids event, with no time increments?>> No, this was an event with the possibility to achieve FIDE norms, in a double round Scheveningen system, with 40 moves in 90 minutes, then 30 minutes for the rest, plus 30 seconds increments from the beginning:


In fact, the tournament schedule was incredible though with three double rounds, even two double-round-days in a row (with starting the games at 10:00 am and at 4:30 pm, generating an extremely short break, if you played on more than 40 moves), and no rest day at all. No doubt, stresstesting the legends.

That's why <some> players were <sometimes> drawing quickly (especially Ribli who had drawn games within 20, 16, 15, even 11 moves and Gerber at the end) to reduce the tension, and avoiding the danger of blundering - or they went sunbathing at the lake...

Lars Rindlisbacher, the youngest, and the two oldest, Korchnoi and Hort, were always fighting: real hereos ;-)

Aug-13-12  Cemoblanca: Great game by Mr. Positional Play. Keyword Positional Play:

And lastly, I was really surprised & disappointed to see that, because I thought the final result would be "extremely tight". ;0) However, here you can see what an average IQ can cause! :D
