If I had realized earlier, I would have erased this game. Yesterday, I thought I had been timed out as ...[text shortened]... w come this game is still going on when the time had expired?
Thanks for your answer.
You set the time outs and time banks. When a challenge is made, you can either accept it or reject it.
As to the one that you accepted that is too fast, just resign it. Your rating may drop for a few games, but the way ratings are calculated, temporary ups and downs quickly correct back to an approximation of your true rating strength. No harm done.
