    Just happened to me a few minutes ago.  His / her clock was red, running down, I couldn't move.  I had 3+ minutes left.  I lost on time.   What gives?  He would have won anyway, he had a huge advantage.

    Yes the same thing happened to me when I was in an overwhelmingly winning position.  The opponents clock drained away without him moving  and I was deemed to have lost.  Computers!!!!

    Now just an idea here, guessing... looking for a reason... could it be my computer just did not refresh?  Only thing wrong with that theory is the clock was still ticking down.

    It just happen to me, that's the second time and one his pawn was on top of mine and it stayed there and there was nothing I could do about that either.

    I lose enough games without the computers help....lol

    I think this is a connection problem...I'm not sure though.  Undecided
