Hey ive just played this game, playing as white in a5 minute/game RTC game, and i believe to have won by timeout. Because when i moved it said: Game Ended, Timeout The thing is my opponent had 8 seconds left on the clock and i had over a minute and i didnt even check him with my move, and once the game done i think i have lost some RTC points in my rating which was really weird. this was probably just some kind of glitch but if someone can elaborate on ths it would maybe clear some things up for me, thanks.-

your pgn should be in your game archive.-

This has happened to me as well. You have to make very sure that you have only one RTC window open, when playing RTC. Only one of the windows is updated by the system. It can be that your opponent\'s last move was done in the second window and that your clock was counting down there. In the other visible window however you were probably one move behind and his clock was running there, making you believe that he was losing the game by timeout while the opposite was going on. In the PGN (game archive) you will be probably see that your opponent indeed has made the last move of the game.-
