The time control, which brings no 30 seconds increment before 61st move, has played a mean trick on Vassily Ivanchuk once again, who dropped the flag in the 3rd round encounter of Grand Prix Thessaloniki against Leinier Dominguez.  


The Ukrainian GM had a completely won position, but failed to convert his advantage. In this position he made an impulsive  37.f4? Black can just take the knight, but Dominguez decided to check the white king: 37...Qe2+ 38.Kg1 Qe1+ 39.Kg2 Qe2+, and here Ivanchuk's flag dropped. 0-1

After the game Dominguez admitted he was ready to sign the draw by repetition. "I am really sorry it happened like that," he added.
