In September 1996 a Chess tournament was held in Yerevan, Armenia. Albert Vasse, CEO of Digital Game Technology went there to demonstrate DGT's clock, then a novelty, and took two Grand Chess sets with him. The result was an ad hoc 'tournament' for whoever had time to play and Albert came back with 34 annotated games, played with 10 minutes for each player and 15 seconds additional time per move.
I recently found those back in an old folder and decided to publish them because they have a kind of juvenile quality with exciting chases.

The final top-3 were:
  1. Vardan Melkonyan (Armenia) 12 - 12
  2. Tan Wei Sin (Malaysia) 5.5 - 7
  3. Mooi Kok Ann (Singapore) 3.5 - 6
