In the third round of the 2008 Dresden Chess Olympiad, the U.S. team faces South Africa. On board 3, GM Shulman has made an official complaint about a clock situation. He made a move and pressed his clock. Unfortunately, his time was still running.
When he discovered this glitch, he reported to the arbiter and the clock was replaced. But the same problem continued. Now he is asking to be moved to a different board because he believes that the board which connects to the clock is malfunctioned.
Team USA won 3.5 – .5!
