There was an article on Chessbase.com recently (about 1-2 weeks ago), and it concerned a rapid game (25 min. time control?) between a young German GM and GM Nigel Short. The story was that Short's opponent showed up 24 minutes late for the match, but went on to win the match, - if I understood the article - with only one minute on his clock, to 25 minut ...[text shortened]... ?!
Did I understand this correctly?
Can someone correct me, or confirm this?
Short's opponent - I can't remember his name either - turned up 24 minutes late for the second game of a two game match. He was already 1-0 ahead so only needed to draw.
As mentioned by an earlier poster, there was a time increment per move so after he made a bunch of quick moves he gained some time back on the clock.
He drew the game and so did indeed win the match.
