Dinerstein is try to win a lost game desperately, and behaved unfair. The turnament rules are unequivocals. And even so, he still remonstrate. Its pitiful.
Otherwise, I agree with fredda.

First of all, why is someone using my name? :) Please use your own name, or at least write anonymous...
Regarding the clock issue, I heard it was told by the recorder. But as there is no stream proof (only board 1 and 2 are on stream) and Mr Dinerschtein denies it, there is no need to further press the issue.

OSit, you certainly have a right to accept your own fatal mistakes and resign even if ahead in your own tournament play. But you have no right to expect your opinion to be forced onto others when it is clearly within their rights under the abiding tournament rules to have the option to correct such mistakes.

You people make the situation look more obvious than it is. Yes, Ondrej made the mistake. However it's easily forgiven because there was a lot of pressure in that game and it's easy to make mistakes like that after playing a couple of hours. The fair thing is to go according to rules.
To me breakfast seems like the Michael Schumacher of Go. He wins a lot but he often ends up in controversial situations. And since he also spreads rumours by himself, he shouldn't be so shocked when somebody spreads rumours about him.
grentd said everything. i cant believe even in go there are fanboys around. grow up. its not the topic that he didnt answered his opponent. its that he was unable to accept one decision which was truly conform to the tournaments rules. no needs for sulking and hoping for a sneaky win.
To accept your mistake (that violated the rules of the game) and resign (even if you are ahead) is another option, no matter how painful it is.
This is my opinion.

Why would the other player resign after playing an illegal move when the tournament rules clearly show that there is another option?
The purpose of playing in a tournament is obviously to win and to do so within the limits of the tournament rules.
nice one Kanin :D
hats off to Ondrej.
It's all about hate here against breakfast.
I didn't see any comment about the other player who made an illegal move and had not enough dignity to resign the game.
