    Hello,

    I just browsed through one of my old games, and I think I have retrospectively discovered a flaw in this specific game: Game 6887276

    Something very strange happened in the 12th move: Bishop g2 takes pawn on b7, but there's a Knight between them! I did not recognize this at the time of playing and just stumbled about this recently.

    Would you mind giving your opinion? Maybe my vision is somehow impaired OR the gamelog might be erroneous?

    Thank you very much!

    your vision is fine. the game is aestheically pleasing. proof of artificial intelligence. the computer program preferred art over reality. appreciate your win and know that sometimes the impossible in reality is possible in the virtual world.

    At various times in the past game logs of the entire site have been corrupted. This game may have been played in one of those time periods. It is funny to see that Bishop jump.

    Well, thank you very much, but I actually lost this game ;-)

    ... yeah, I'm pretty sure that this is a bug in the gamelog, because otherwise I would have recognized this a lot earlier, wouldn't I?

    If you look at the date, and check other games around this period, you'll find many are also 'corrupted'..a site 'glitch'
