  perfidious: Shaked's 22nd, allowing the sucker punch ....Rxe3, is a classic case of the 'wrong rook', though after 22.Rad1, Black looks comfortable in any case, with his potential threats against the kingside in ....Nxg2 and ....Bxh3.

While watching this game in progress, I felt Kaidanov's position was possibly a little better, then wandered off to view some other games. Next thing I knew, White had resigned; bit of a surprise, until I realised what happened.

  FSR: <perfidious> Your description reminds me of A Chow vs E Karklins, 1979. I was playing on the board next to it, and was surprised to hear, then see, the players quietly packing up their pieces and leaving. What, a draw already? Um, no.
