First draw and first `no handshake`for the match !

Topalov and Anand draw their third game  last night. The game had an interesting finish. Both players reach a dead drawn endgame and a threefold repetition occur. Because that Topalov has agreed to play under the Sofia Rule, he didn`t offer a draw to his opponent - Anand  but some spectator said he consult the arbiter about the drawn position. Anand probably playing a psychological move, also didn`t want to offer anything and keep playing. However the arbiter decide it was a drawn game finally and the players end the game without handshake. At the press conference, the players said they both forget to shake hand after the game ?!  Remember Short-Cheparinov no handshake incident!

Kalau mula game tak salam, itu yang boleh forfeit kira kalah. Ini masa habis game tak salam. Game short tu pasal masa mula lawan dia tak nak salam.
