Improve Your Chess: Game Features Strange Occurrence
Opening: C07: French Defense, Tarrasch Variation
White gets a good opening and then Black falls for a tactic that loses a pawn and the exchange. White is well on the way to winning but makes a purposeful sacrifice to go into a winning endgame which makes the win somewhat more difficult than it should have been. Just then, with White in time trouble, Black gets up from this OTB game and announces he has to leave - but is not resigning - he has a pre-arranged understanding with the TD to adjourn right in the middle! White, flabbergasted at this blatant rule violation, has no choice but to wait a week to put away his opponent.
