This happened to me at a tournament in France last Friday. I had (as I thought) an advantageous position against a player rated 160 higher than me. I had about a minute for the last move, had two ways to capture a pawn and just couldn't decide and forgot about the clock. So different from Jessel's game in that i didn't even make a move on the board, but nonetheless highly frustrating. Has this happened to anyone else?NickFaulks wrote: ↑

FM Stephen Jessel just failed to punch his clock in time after making move 40 on the board.
I always find that a bit strange when there is a 30 second increment.
No wonder I can't improve my ELO rating much!
