Round 5-KL Open 2010: Hou Yifan vs Nguyen Anh Dung

Despite being 2 pawns up, it was a Bishop of opposite colours ending and Anh Dung calmly defended despite having less than a minute on the clock (no increment!). He even recorded when he had only 1 min 20 seconds! In the end, the arbiter stepped in after Nguyen claimed a draw as the players started blitzing moves with the bishops to and fro aimlessly just to keep pace with the clock. A draw was declared with Nguyen having only 20 seconds on the clock vs Hou's 2 minutes plus.
