Just had an eight win streak!!! My best ever.........and totally hollow.
Only one of them was a genuine win, the others were time outs. Some of these being very much against the run of play. I've basically been winning because I have a smartphone and a Chess.com app so that I've been able to keep up with my games even though I've had very limited access to a computer over Christmas. Not everyone has that advantage.
I think that there should be some sort of automatic vacation during major holiday periods, to stop this sort of thing, particularly for tournaments where it's not just you and the timing out player that is affected by the result.
I hope everyone has had a great Christmas.
