  3. Losing on time with insufficient mating material?

I don't understand why the result here was a loss on time, instead of a draw due to insufficient mating material:

I dare you, I double dare you: say „insufficient“ one more time!


How about this position?

I am a chess expert and not responsible for every checkered nonsense in the world.


I'd call that bad luck.

I'd call that insufficient programming.

You still have to make the move, otherwise it can be seen as losing on purpose I think. Terrible luck though. I assume your internet went out?
