Кто может сказать, что точно произошло в партии Шашикиран-Матаморос в финале Интеллектуальных игр в Пекине? "There was however great drama in the finals between India and Ecuador. All four players won and lost one game each in their two matches (1-1 and 1-1) and in the playoff game between GM Sasikiran Krishnan of India and GM Carlos Franco Matamoros of Ecuador, Sasikiran had the White pieces and 6 minutes while Matamoros had Black and 5 minutes and draw odds. In a time scramble in a position where Black could not realistically lose in normal conditions, Matamoros accidently displaced a piece after pressing his clock." Under the tournament rules he did not have the opportunity to reset the piece as it was not on his time and so Sasikiran made a claim which had to be upheld by the arbiter. So pending the decision of the appeals committee, India has won Gold and Ecuador the Silver. THE APPEALS COMMITTEE ORDERED THE GAME REPLAYED IN THE INTERESTS OF FAIR PLAY. And in the replay, GM Matamoros beat GM Sasikiran to secure Ecuador the Gold Medal!
