Sep-19-13  Nerwal: According to the official report black had only 1 minute left at move 18, and once again in a position with all pieces still on the board when tactical complications hadn't even effectively started; shortly after Harika was also lacking time, so Anna Ushenina isn't the only one with a serious time management issue.

21. ♕f3 is supposed to be the right move - 21. ♕f3 ♘xe5 22. dxe5! ♗xf3 23. exd6 ♗xd1 24. ♖xd1 and white is the exchange down but has just too many threats; humans aren't keen to play like that while short on time. 24. fxe3 gives black a chance to survive with 25... ♕e7; white possibly got confused about 24. ♕xf6 ♗xf2+ and then something like 25. ♕xf2 ♖c7, but 26. ♘g4 would give a winning attack. Maybe she was trying hard to make d5 work and didn't think much about the ♘g4 idea; it was playable in the game too at move 26.

What has Ushenina to do all that went in this game? Was her baleful influence exerted from afar? Was she waiting <en la toilette>, smartphone in hand, at the ready to assist whichever player had slipped her baksheesh?

While it is possible that either-or both-player(s) in this game may be addicted to time trouble, it strikes me that your conclusion, in the absence of evidence provided to the contrary, is a wonderfully sweeping generalisation, complete with inferences drawn, rather than critical thought.
