In the 4th round I played against a strong young International Master Tamás Petényi. 

He played the old Indian defense. I got space advantage and more active pieces,  but I could not find the best way to improve my position further and used too much time.

When we ere both low on time I overlooked a nice knight sacrifice and he won the endgame:
