I have to say that the operator of Ikarus told me that Ikarus was using only
slow P450 and he also has not the latest version because his brother has
connection problems with the internet.

He even suggested to resign some plies before the end because he said that he
may leave the tournament and it is not fair that I get a draw when other get
wins but I said that there is no justification to resign in a drawn position and
Movei has no chance to win the tournament so it is not very important if I lose
1/2 point.
