Jun-18-19  Cibator: Oh my, the old "12-move bug" strikes again.
Jun-19-19  Pyrandus: I do not understand, sorry.
Jul-17-19  Cibator: <Pyrandus: I do not understand, sorry.>

What I mean is: there's some bug in the site software that causes several of the game-scores shown here to cut off abruptly at the 12th move, with no obvious reason for the game to have actually ended at that point.

Look at the final position above. Black has a pretty bad game but he's far from losing immediately. There have to have been more moves after White's 12th which for whatever reason are not being shown.
