  FSR: Presumably White lost on time.

  FSR: IM Goran Arsovic is the greatest exponent of the rook versus rook and bishop endgame of all time! Why do I say that? He's had two of them, and scored 1.5 points! So what, you say? The superior side wins that ending over 40% of the time. True, but Goran Arsovic had the rook in both cases! He held the draw in 255 moves in I Nikolic vs G Arsovic, 1989, the longest tournament game of all time between humans. Then he WON from the inferior side (on time, I assume) in this game. Please don't confuse him with IM Zoran Arsovic, his twin brother.
