No more draws (over the board)

An interesting idea by Rustam Kasimdzhanov to avoid draws in classical chess tournaments...

So simple, but effective. I think it would do wonders for chess spectators and put enormous pressure on the players to perform.

Why no draws ?
A draw is a normal result.
It would be enough to take the point-rules from football(soccer).
0ne win = three draws.
If you only get 0.33 for a draw, you play with more risk.
Since this rule started in football, every team plays with more risk. Would be the same in chess, I think.
