A win “on time”

Win on time

My opponent playing the White pieces simply let her clock run out in this Corrrespondence Chess game yesterday without making a move, giving me a win with Black by default. We were playing with the very relaxed time control of 5 days per move, so she had plenty of time to politely resign if she wanted to. But, nooo... she just silently walked away.

At least we'd made enough moves so this counts as a real game, and I do get credit for the win, so there is that.

The final position of the pieces is above, and our complete, but very short move record is below:

1.e4 d6 2.Bb5+ Bd7 3.h4 Bxb5 4.d3 h6 5.g4 e5 6.Nh3 Ne7 7.g5 Nbc6 8.f4 exf4 9.Nxf4 Nd4 10.c3 Ne6 11.Nd5 Nxd5 12.exd5 Nc5 13.d4 Qe7+ 14.Kd2 Ne4+ 0-1

And the adventure continues.
