  wordfunph: GM Morozevich recounted this game from his book The Chigorin Defence According to Morozevich..

<On his 3rd move he spent as many as 42 minutes! If Julio Granda had warned me beforehand about his thoughtfulness, at that time I would possibly have arranged to meet some charming lady. As it was, I sat, walked around the room, ate something, looked here and there, and didn't know what to do with myself. In my opponent's time-trouble I avoided a repetition of moves and overstepped the mark.>

Apr-20-12  Jim Bartle: I don't know whether Morozevich wrote that as something light or half in jest, but if he was serious, it's ridiculous. His opponent used a lot of time early in the game, Morozevich got nervous waiting, and then HE overstepped the time limit. Makes a lot of sense.

Besides, as far as I can see, his position at the end is totally lost. If he overstepped the time limit, he was lost anyway.

Apr-20-12  acirce: Surely "overstep the mark" means, not losing on time, but (in this context) taking too much risk trying to win?
Apr-20-12  Jim Bartle: OK, that makes sense. Still, the fact an opponent got in time trouble is no excuse for poor play.
