    Dear chessers,

    I have one game in progress now, where my opponent hasn't been moving for years. In game details it says:
    Move Timeout 21 days
    Initial Timebank 28 days
    Everyday I check the website and it shows me the same numbers 21 and 28. How can I determine when move timeout occurs and how do I claim win!

    Thank you in advance to those who will explain.

    Azeri.

    When a little skull pops up next to the game, whete the time is listed on your "my games" page, then you may claim the timeout. It will be to the right of the info link.

    click the info button and the remaining move timebank will show up. With the move timeout you have to take your best guess form the last move. If there is no red bar then he has not yet expended his origional 21 days.
