It's rare to see strong players miss such an obvious, forcing finish. But in their defense, the game was a rapid game. Perhaps they were already low on time? Or does the 250 represent the number of seconds she thought about her move?

Yes, 250 represent the number of seconds obviously. I think she just miscalculated this Bxh7!! move.  Cry

hmm... not much of a novelty if the reply leads to a quickly forced win.

16...Nb4? what a novelty!?  Shocked (16...Nf4 is the common move)
17.Nf6!! At this point I expected a massacre.. Grin
18.Qh4... What? Why?.. Nooooo!  Cry (18.Bxh7!! 1-0)
...And both went peacefully..  Embarrassed
