  Honza Cervenka: Why 1-0? I can't see anything better than 34.Be5 winning back the piece but after 34...Ra6 35.Bxf4 Rxa2 36.bxc4 (what else?) 36...Rxc4 white is just one Pawn up, and with opposite colour Bishops on the board and active black Rooks the position looks quite drawish.

  louispaulsen88888888: It would be a good idea if there was something indicating that the result was due to time forfeit. They could just put 1-0(time) for example.

  louispaulsen88888888: As to the game itself,White destroyed this coffee house garbage, at least until the waste of time with 14.Khi? 14.Qd4! leaves Black nothing for his pawn.
