    Most of the games shown were decided by major blunders when time ran low for one or both sides; otherwise the results (of individual as well as team matches) could have been radically different.

    Ukraine would have normally won 2 instead of 4 games, while Georgia would have won 3-1 (with Galliamova losing, not winning) -- but time trouble decided a lot in the final minutes and seconds of those games.

    They are not only interesting, but also dramatic because of that; unfortunately, that also makes them objectively of lower quality...

    335394862 - Not a draw. Black's only chance is to keep checking (re1, rd1, etc) but then white moves down the board keeping to e & f until black has to go rf1 and then white queens and black has to give up his rook.

    It's a win, because white just moves his king down to the black rook, if the black rook keeps checking the king.
