Dear Mr. Vardapetyan,

Thank you very much for your response.

Only one thing matters here. If not that "Russian website" the chess world wouldn't hear your opinion on the incident. Everything else is lyricism.

Not to mention that half of the chess world would never know that, as it turns out, there has been made "a slight change in FIDE rules" and now one can claim a draw without stopping the clock.

Nonetheless, let me, the one representing that minority, which appeals to the facts to doubt as minimum two paragraphs in your narration.
- Wang Hao wrote down his move not after, but before the arbiter restarted the clock and you can clearly see that on the video; it is also confirmed by the witness;
- the fact that Wang Hao disturbed Dreev
by his behaviour and was punished exactly for that can't really be confirmed neither on the video or by any of the witnesses, nor by the players themselves. For that is just an interpretation.


Best regards,
Editor-in-chief of the Russian website

P.S. I found another discrepancy: "The arbiter stopped the clock," you write and then repeat it while giving a commentary. Meanwhile, it's absolutely clear on the video that the arbiter didn't stop the clock but prompted Wang Hao to do so; that was Chinese player who stopped the clock.
