    My opponent has only moved once. All his playing time and bank time has. Been exhausted and he still has not moved. How do I claim this game nd not keep me tie up? My my opponent is Paul Hartley. I am Joe1949. Thanks. Any suggestions. Would be appreciated.

    Note under "Time Controls" that his timebank is depleting. How much timebank he has left is something you don't know for sure, but you might get an estimate by adding up when you last moved + 3 days normal move time + however long it has been since then. Easier is to look for a "trash can" icon in your game list since this game just started and the game will be deleted as if it never started. Otherwise look for the "skull" icon which indicates ALL his available time has expired, click it and the win is yours.

    Has anyone experienced a situation where a game is won and no points are awarded?

    . If your rating is 720+ points higher than your opponent's, zero points are earned.

    My opponent somehow captured my pawn by moving behind it!
    . It's called the en passant rule - read the FAQ.

    You're a 1720 player, and don't know en passant?....... mmmmm

    As suspicious as your game stats!
