A strong 10-player round robin has commenced in Poikovsky, Russia
Some exciting battles in round 1.
The longest game was between Lysyj and Korobov and if the final position is correct - black agreed to a draw in a winning position! (http://www.chessbomb.com/arena/2015-poikovsky/01-Lysyj_Igor-Korobov_Anton). Need to confirm this is the correct position cause if it is - it is rather surprising. May be it was a mistake in relay.

A possible explanation is that the "move" Ke4 might not have happened but might have been a result of moving the kings to the centre of the board to show the result.

Yes, that is most certainly what happened.
