Go game 10878 Why black resign?

Why black resign? Black has huge advantage, four corners, one group of stones in center can escape.

Clock ?

I didn't look at the position, but it is also possible that Black lost on time...

White is far ahead

Corners are important, but a quick count shows white with at least 90 + komi, black with around 65. Since B has to escape around e6 B can't hope to get much more while W will continue to earn points. Game 13059, though, is a mis-resignation. I set it up as a problem at http://www.godiscussions.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3856
