  Tabanus: "Sakkvilágbajnokság 1976: Manila, Biel, Varese" by Janos Flesch (1978) p. 148:

<Úgy látszik, ez a lépés volt a legerösebb a zónaközi döntökön lejátszott valamennyi közül. Ribli ugyanis várt, várt, de választ nem kapott. Nem is kaphatott, mert Quinteros nem érkezett meg az egyórás várakozasi idon belül. A versenybíróság a magyar sakkozónak ítélte a pontot.>

Google translate:

"Apparently, this was the most powerful force in the inter-zone finals all played out. Riblet is anticipated, expected, but received no reply. Not have received because Quinteros has not been received within the one-hour waiting period. The jury awarded the Hungarian chess player to the point."

= Ribli waited and waited, but Quinteros did not turn up.

  perfidious: That single move was earth-shattering; it is surprising Quinteros ever played another game of chess after facing this cataclysm.
Sep-01-16  Howard: Chess Life & Review mentioned this game, saying that "Ribli was enjoying Quinteros's clock" while the latter was "enjoying his dinner" at some Japanese restaurant, unaware that his clock had been started.
