Proof Game in 21.0 moves
(Position after Black's 21st move. How did the game go?)

Well as the queen and kings knight have been mentioned. The queens knight won't save time that I can see, too far for the king, so that must make it the rook on h1.

People had conjectured which piece takes the Bishop, but nobody had guessed the correct piece at the time I posted the hint (5th post in thread).

Perhaps, the player just took it off the board, or they agreed to the handicap?
