Apr-02-17  Illogic: White could have claimed repetition after move 42

  HeMateMe: Smooth. Interesting how black allowed the big passed pawn mass in the center. That often overwhelms a defender. Yu had a good grip on it, I guess.
Apr-04-17  Nerwal: More likely White made a mistake by trading queens.

  Sally Simpson: Apparently Irina was unaware she could claim 3 fold rep. She thought she was repeating the position only for the 2nd time with 42.Ke3.

Tim Harding makes a good point on an other forum.

"Perhaps it was hard to spot because the first time the position arose it was as the result of a pawn move."

White played 38.g3.

It is now Black's move and this same position arose on move 40 with Black to move and again on move 42.

At move 42 Irina could have stopped the clocks, called across an arbiter and say she is about to repeat a position for the 3rd time.

I have to admit when I saw the first post by Illogic, I thought it was a mistake. Only by going through it again did I realise the post was correct.

Apr-04-17  Petrosianic: If they played the tournament online, the server would have helpfully claimed the draw for her whether she wanted it or not.

  HeMateMe: on the program won't declare a 3-peat draw unless you specifically claim it by hitting the draw offer button.
