1. Opponent #1 has accepted at 6:24PM
2. Opponent #1 has moved at 6:24PM
3. Opponent #2 has accepted at 6:29PM
4. Opponent #2 has moved at 6:29PM
These all indicated the same Game ID, 3948681, in the URL. The game has been started with Opponent #2 as white; I t sure what happened to Opponent #1. The game is going along fine, just wanted to let you know.
You posted a game. Someone took the game and made a move. They must have deleted that game for some reason.
Your game goes back to the list, rather than you having wasted time creating a game that someone would delete.
Player 2 has taken this game, and with luck will finish. If anyone makes 3 or so moves you would have a win, rating change... and need to create a new game.
This is a somewhat new feature to prevent people from accepting games and deleting them for no reason. Your game just goes back to the list until you get a real game to play out at least 3 moves or so.
Hope that helps. You are not playing 2 people, the first guy bugged out.
