Correspondance game - remaining time for opponent

I’ve had a couple of correspondence games where my opponent’s time was fairly low but suddenly was increased without him playing a move. Any explanation on that? Is this a loophole to abuse the timing system?


Please, do provide a link to the game so someone can investigate your claim.

Yeah, this isn’t a whole lot to go on…

The game is now pause on vacation but take a look at what happened just before that… timer jumped from 11h to 24h

Could be that they decided to support OGS … this gains more vacation time, and faster.

Oops, sorry, misunderstood.
