    I checkmated my opponent in this game but it registered as "Game drawn." Could someone tell me how this can happen. Thank you. Game 4337295

    Your opponent is not in check, and they also cannot make a legal move. That is a stalemate, which is a draw.

    Yep your mate move would have been Queen to c4 by the looks of it.

    Annoying when that happens.
