Chess trivia question: Who lost their game at Olympiad because of Nokia gambit?

Chess News and Chess Trivia Blog (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2010

Hello Everyone,

How about a trivia question to check how closely you were following the 39th Chess Olympiad in Khanty Mansiysk?

Do you know what is the Nokia gambit in chess? It is when a player forfeits his game in a chess tournament because his mobile went off. Ruslan Ponomariov of course was the pioneer of this gambit and Nigel Short practised it!

Now, of course someone played this gambit at the Chess Olympiad - by mistake of course.

Who lost their game at the Olympiad because their mobile rang?
