  wordfunph: startling 3...Qb5?? 1-0
Apr-11-18  Gejewe: <wordfunph> A sad accident for Alexander Reprintsev who has played the Scandinavian 1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3 Qa5 all his life. I was not a direct eye-witness but noticed some agitation a couple of boards away from my own. Rogelio Antonio was standing and talking. Soon thereafter both players were gone. Other players who had been there then told us that Reprintsev played his queen somewhere between b5 and a5 (obviously intending to play ..Qa5 but it "landed" wrongly, probably closer to b5). And almost directly the player of the black pieces corrected by giving the queen a little push towards a5. As a result Antonio claimed that 3..Qb5 has been played,which is his right of course. Reprintsev did the gentleman thing, instead of starting endless disputes, he resigned the game. The arbiter checked the live-board notation which gives 3..Qb5. At this moment Reprintsev was joint leader, and eventually finished equal 4th (with a very good tiebreak score), so this fingerslip may have robbed him of a top three standing which his creative and strong play had certainly deserved.

May-08-20  CoachRolly: LOL

I also had a 3 move winner in our MVP Olympics a few years ago. My opponent from the IM Garma coached Smart Team answered a cellphone call from his wife! He was still talking when the arbiter approached our board.

May-08-20  CoachRolly: I was not proud of the win but I am happy since I can use the extra time for rest since we are playing 3 games a day. And most importantly, my team mates got motivated since the 3 of them just needs to score 1.5 points for us to win!

Breaks of the game!
