Stop the insanity

Chess Today had the following today in its newsletter:

Video of the scandalous Round 1 Armageddon tiebreak Socko-S.Foisor was posted at Youtube by the Russian journalist Evgeny Surov. This game looks not much better than the famous chaotic Armageddon between Krush and Zatonskih at the US women’s championship.

After seeing all this, one may only conclude that these armageddons are not a great idea at all. To play two blitz games with increment is saner.
