  wordfunph: <1994 World Juniors Championship: Players who get into time pressure every so often are not uncommon. Game after game, Israeli IM Michael Oratovsky would end up playing his last 10 or 15 moves in a minute or two. Sometimes he didn't make it, and the look on his face when he lost on time on move 40 against Georgiev in a winning position was complete devastation. Strangely enough, Oratovsky usually came to his games 10 minutes late!>

happy birthday, GM Oratovsky!
