  Phony Benoni: Well, that's sort of what happened.

The time control was 30 moves in two hours, followed by 15 moves in one hour. Games were scheduled from 7:00 PM-12:00 PM, when they could be adjourned.

Around 11:30 PM Tenenwurzel, pleading fatigue, asked to adjourn. The problem was that Capablanca had been playing quickly and used less than two hours on his clock. This meant that Tenenwurzel would have to use more than three hours before the five-hour limit would be reached, and would thus have to make the time control at move 45.

When Tenenwurzel refused to continue, his clock remained running and his flag eventually fell. Capablanca was awarded the win, and this was upheld on appeal.

Dec-17-12  12.12.12: wow, phony. thanks!

for that i hope you enjoy this (though most probably you know of it already):
