what puzzles me is he had a lot of time but it all went as soon as he put up the vacation flag, or at least that what i understand by no timebank remaining. will he still lose on time even though he hasnt used up all his time. if not then why does it say no timebank remaining.
If you put up your vacation flag, that only stops your opponent from claiming a time-out win.
The vacation flag DOES NOT stop your time from running down to zero. When it is your turn to move your time is counting down, regardless of the vacation flag.
You have only 36 vacation days per year, so when those are used up you can no longer prevent your opponent from claiming the win when you are out of time.
I hope that helps.
