I was playing a game of chess against introvert, and his timer was in the red - counting down to 0. Just as his timer hit 0 he made a move, his King from E2 to F3 to take my pawn which had him in check.

As his king took my pawn, I was presented with a "alchemy timed out, introvert claimed the $50,000" yet it was not even my shot, and was unable to even make a move as no timer was active next to my name.

not sure if this helps any:

it showed alchemy timing out on my screen however, but i believe when someone enters the room to watch, the current move gets cancelled, and perhaps does more, that needs to be looked into.

edit: fairly sure alchemy would have ended up winning the match if they didnt time out, i am a terrible chess player though lol.

I believe it is same connection problem, the move E2 to F3 doesn't take much time to think, so Introvert probably moved his king next second after your move, and maybe this is why it didn't get sent to you.
Actually was it quick or not it doesn't really matter, sometimes some moves just get lost, this is bad, we know, we are working on it.

Thank you.
