I've simply been watching edited highlights of the Armageddon game betwixt Monika Socko in addition to Sabine Foisor inwards circular 1 of the Women's World Championship inwards Nalchik.

Monika Socko of Poland had White in addition to half dozen minutes to win, playing against Sabina Foisor of Romania who had Black in addition to 5 minutes to driblet dead a draw. It came downwardly to a clock-thumping finale which was caught on cinema past times a bystander. The lastly infinitesimal unopen to tin give the axe live seen every bit business office of this study on ChessBase.

The moves were existence blitzed out every bit a tremendous charge per unit of measurement alongside pieces existence knocked over correct left in addition to centre. It came downwardly to manly individual monarch in addition to knight versus manly individual monarch in addition to knight in addition to a few seconds afterward Foisor's fourth dimension ran out ("flag fall" inwards onetime terminology, though in that location is no flag on digital clocks).

The arbiters on the location ruled that the game was drawn on the grounds that White could non forcefulness a win, though it is possible for Black to allow herself to live mated (e.g. wKc7, wNb6, bKa8, bNa7 - afterward note: credit to Sean Hewitt for noticing that the master lay I gave hither was non checkmate! I accept moved the dark knight from b8 to a7...). However, this is non the almost logical interpretation of article 9.6 of the laws of chess ("the game is drawn when a lay is reached from which a checkmate cannot tumble out past times whatsoever possible serial of legal moves, fifty-fifty alongside the almost unskilled play...") in addition to the appeal commission overruled the arbiters in addition to awarded White a win.

However, 1 matter that nobody else seems to accept noticed then far is that Foisor could accept forced a depict inwards the lastly sequence. I reconstructed the game from the video in addition to the diagram on the left above shows a lay which arose simply earlier the end. The game proceeded: 1...Ke6 two Nc5+ Kf5 iii Nd3 Ke4 iv Nb4?? in addition to directly nosotros attain the lay on the right, above. Amazingly, Black didn't snap off White's knight alongside 4...Nxb4 which would accept given her the depict she needed to qualify, but played 4...Kd4?? 5 Nc6+ Kc5 6 Ne5 Kd6 vii Nd3 Nf6 8 Nf4 Nd5 at which betoken Black lost on time. In truth, it is real difficult to encounter the actual moves played but I'm pretty certain they were every bit above. I create promise pitiful Sabina Foisor doesn't sentry the video every bit she volition live kicking herself for missing a 'draw inwards one'.
