Now my question is: "palestinechamp goes All-in $0 due to disconnection"
What exactly does that mean, how exactly does it work and why did we goto a showdown? I dont understand how he 'won the main pot' when he was disconnected?

It's called disconnection protection and some sites have it on certain tables. If you get disconnected you get a side pot with all the chips put in so far. Since there's only two of you in the pot it then goes to showdown.
Can be a bit unfair since the players gets the advantage of not risking anymore chips when he might have folded but if you had a great hand you'd be really annoyed if your connection failed. On some sites there are tables where there is no DP if you don't want it.
Yep, just like the first guy said, DP is what happened, although some people tend to use it to limit the damage when they have half a hand. I personally don't like playing tables that allow too many DP's per person.

I used to have a bad connection so tables with disconnection protection was REALLY nice to have, however I have seen many occassions where players purposely disconnected because they thought they had a good hand, but not a great hand, and the betting was getting fierce. I now have a rock solid connection which makes things less frightening when I get killer hands.
