Layson: And the award for inconsiderate man of the year goes to Pavel Tregubov. It takes a man with no heart to complain about stopped clocks when a man's life is in play.
<"The players told me that there had been an unfortunate incident. I do not know the details, but Gashimov became ill, he lost consciousness and fell off his chair. His teammates rushed to his aid, and all the Azeri players set out to find a doctor. I began to discuss the situation with my players, and at that point the arbiter point stopped the clocks on all boards. I believe that was an error in judgement – he should not have interferee in the games. At the most he could have stopped the clock in the game Vachier Lagrave-Gashimov, if Maxime had requested this, but I'm not even sure of that. We need to ask the experts. But to stop the clocks of all the games of the match is, in my opinion, completely senseless. Why was it necessary? After all the match was still going on! I understand the argument that Mamedyarov ran to help Gashimov, but there were also other people who could have helped, and Shakhriyar could have returned after five minutes to continue his game. However, I do not think that any actions taken by the arbiters would affect the final outcome of the match. My players were very upset by what had happened, and so all agreed that we should offer a draw on all boards, even though they were aware that the match was going well for us.">
LIFE Master AJ: No picture? (This guy is a GM, I think he was once European Champ.)
