European championsips Whoa! this really knocks me out!:

Does anyone happen to have game Macieja(POL) - Halkias S(GRE) from 4th round?

Macieja has something like two rooks and a knight, and the black has only two pawns. Still, they took a draw. It could be becouse of time pressure, but i quess they are using increments.

Does anyone know why this happened?

i'll see if i find a link...

Hmmm.... In the game I have, the draw was agreed when white had a knight versus black two passed pawns. At no point Macieja was two rooks up.

That is... Strange... i'm sure he had two rooks... perhaps there was a bug in the program... it hasn't been working very well.
