The clock showed that Philipp had used more than two hours to make his forty moves. The situation was complicated by the fact that the clock had not put on the display it is supposed to do when the time runs out. But earlier in the game an illegal move had been made and retracted, and another move made instead. So the clock "thought" that the fortieth move was past and gone, and just clicked over into the secondary time control. Because the clock showed that beyond question the two hours had been exceeded, the game was declared a win for Black. 0-1
