That is actually a nice idea.
New Rule No.2,568.
If you lose by time out or resign you get 0 pts. If you get checkmated you get ½ a point.
I can imagine a tournament where one lad needs just ½ a point to win the tournament
playing a lad who needs the 3 points to tie the tournament.
The leader opens f2-f3 and g3-g4 and Black spends the whole game trying not
to mate him, whilst White spends the whole game trying to get checkmated.
Having seen some recent games on RHP I'm thinking this rule might already be in place.
