Black resigned, or did he lose on time? Seems too early to be a time loss.

Black may have feared losing the exchange after 27...hxg6 28. Bg4.

Drastic! White has problems owing to the pinned bishop on d6.

Nov-27-16  Muttley101: Presumably black resigned because he is two pawns down with no compensation; the Bc4 is pinned and Bd6 pin is not dangerous.
