White played qxf7 mate winning. Black didn't realise what had happened until he got home
Was the touch move rule an issue?
Last guess: was there an overlooked mate in 1?
The time control reached, White sensibly took stock. He thought long & hard, assessing the key features of the position. A win was still possible, but it would require Perseverance, Patience and considerable Precision. But first, the King must move out of check. Holding fast to the PPP code, bearing particular attention to the need for Precision, White played Kb3
His opponent did a CJ and legged it?
White thought so long over his 2 legal moves that he lost on time?
White believed black had offered a draw, when black was checking they had made the time control? Remember reading an article about this. David Howell was white, the author of the article (whose name I can't recall) was black.
Black, having reached the time control, neglected to press his clock and hence, lost on time
Ben has the basic premise. Full details Wednesday.
Was it Jon Levitt playing black?
