i found a game how was it a win?

Its secretly antichess!

In all seriousness, yeh it should be declared a draw but I do not think lichess can implement such a code, so hence it was timeout and a loss.

Just my thought however,
Thank you

i was about to post "mate is possible"
then I realized what is going on
why not agree to draw on move one?

Yes according to the FIDE rules this is what's known as a dead position because checkmate is not possible through any sequence of moves. And dead positions are draws. The reason it's not a draw on lichess is because it would be hard to code accurately for all these types of situations. They do have draws by insufficient material, but not for dead positions.

It is draw but if you play many moves Stockfish 8 will start playing faster
