I haven't had anything to drink so I'm not seeing things, but can someone tell me why white didn't pick the pawn up at move 3 with 3. Nf3?? Nxe4
Often on blitz type games you will find people carry on to the end in the hope that their opponent :-
* gives them a stalemate
* might be drunk
* might loose on time etc
* internet connection might drop,
Not saying that is what happened here but a few possibilities.
