    Look a bit closer at the pawn structure.

    Yes, so I noticed, but can't all that have happened more than 13 moves ago? (probably not, again)

    Probably didn't look closely enough at the pawn structure. (=> there can not have been some random piece on d7, probably)

    I've got three half-moves and I'm not even sure of those. 13 single moves means 26 half-moves, I suppose?

    "Single move", oddly enough, means the same as "half move".

    Single move = half move.

    OK thank you, wasn't sure of the term (that it's English added to the confusion). I hadn't come past three single moves anyway.
