When the board resumed--this same bishop that I had just taken was in another location and in line with the piece that "took" it's phantom.
The phantom location was the bishops previous location.
I some how moved without my opponent's move registering.
What happened? And what do I do about it?
Im guessing this is about Game 7334523
All moves in that game history are legal. Are you refering to move 39.Kxa6? You actually captured a Rook there, not blacks white Bishop. 39....Bc4+ and black moved his white bishop on the line with your King. (All legal moves).
"I some how moved without my opponent's move registering.
Doubtfull, this shouldnt be possible. The gamehistory doesnt show anything like that either. It could be that your opponent made a conditional move, then he automaticly could move after you did, what could have made you think that he didnt move at all and you moved twice...
Ps1. I have no idea what a "phanton" piece is.
Ps2. Move 39....Bc4+ doesnt show a "+" sign in the game history, should it?
