Some players, when losing, withdraw the game... without any penalties.
The opponent cancels the game. It isn't listed in the match history.
There are circumstances when such an abort happens: before a player’s move, or when there is a server reboot.
But in the following game, neither of these situations applies. Has anyone encountered such an event, or knows what might have happened?
