  GrahamClayton: Is this a premature resignation, or did White lose on time?
Jan-27-10  erad1288: Honestly I don't know which it is, but just as far as the position itself is concerned, I don't see any type of active plan for white except for g3 but that just opens up the part of the board that black would be pawn storming on. So, in some ways I suppose white had three choices, 1. drop a pawn, 2. open up his king, or 3. wait for black's pawn rush on the kingside.

None of the options listed above seem to delightful so I suppose that white decided he had better things to do than to wait to be killed. Just my 2 cents.
