This short game is from recently concluded National Closed 2011. A bizarre draw because we need to repeat the position nine (or is it ten?) times. This is due to tournament regulation that disallow draw below 20 moves.
The game followed a well known Sax-Seirawan 1988 game but of course their game ended on move 12.
Below is the game.
B : ONG THIAN LOON
Well, not really a game that we proud of.
Half a point for a draw.
Zero point for lack of fighting spirit or perhaps I should use the word of the month...ducking.
