sometimes u have nothing to do but think. That's the idea of chess and chess is fun. But sometimes when 1 have too much thinking and little play s/he becomes a baddy. So, I am the one now "cos 1 of my games with FM Kacparov (2081)
has suddenly stopped. The opponent refuses to go (for like 5 or 6 months) on and I suspect is waiting for the news of my death (God forbids). It appears that he is a so called premium member and has lots of vacation time. It's needless to say that his position is hopeless, but I say it, let the truth come out. At last. It's an awesome example of peculiar sportsmanship for PREMIUM MEMBERS, indeed.There's a silver lining in all this - I'm also on my vacation in this game and enjoying it till time do us part.
Thnak you for your kind attention.
The guy has 416 games in progress and is an FM who travels often to tournaments; The only reasonable explanation for him not being online is that he wants you dead.
That sounds nice and at least polite;)
The story goes on and on .... and on....
Your opponent is currently on vacation! "Polish Superleague and EuropeanYCC coming" They have 2 months 26 days of vacation time left, but may be back sooner
This coward just don't have guts to face that he's lame.
Hey you know what I just heard on the news today?; Turns out that people actually continue to exist even when you're not around them! And even more amazingly, they actually have lives, in which they can sometimes do things that don't even revolve around you! At first I didn't believe them because the idea was so strange, but those scientists were very convincing.
The funny(strange) thing is that this muppet berates one of the most talented, genuine and honest guys on the site.
Kacper is so good that he would skin most of us with a shy smile.
No need for acrimony. The site decides the amount of vacation and players use it however they wish.
That being said, players earn two days per month and Kacparov has according to you, used a lot to keep from timing out. That means he cannot legitimately have 2 months 26 days of a maximum 90 days. But again the site, not the player, decides how much vacation a player gets.
Could be an issue similar to this. http://www.chess.com/forum/view/help-support/vacation-time-unexpectedly-increasing
Edit 2011 09 15: Similar to this where princecan, Member Since: Aug 23, 2011, could have only 9 days maximum of earned vacation.
Seven days upon joining + one day on Sept 1st + one day on Sept 15th = 9 days.
it means corruption in chess is live and kicking u just pay and they'll give u as much vacational time as u wish. So, what's this all about again? Yeah it's about nice example of fair play (Spotsmanship) and it has nothing 2 do with the outside life if even it's on Mars.
That makes it even worse!
I know you're not really angry about this because this is too ridiculous a thing to be angry about. Look inside yourself; what is the true root of your troubles? (I think there was a South Park episode about this.)
Glad to arouse a heated discussion though;)
I'm sorry hutter, I resigned the game. Well done
Calling him out publicly was a little excessive though, don't you think?
A heated discussion is when two or more people with reasonable but opposing viewpoints have a logical and thorough debate in which they become very involved.
This thread is one guy calling another guy a jerk and two guys calling the first guy an idiot.
All in all, call it what u want but justice was restored.
And what's that thing in taking so much care of wrong doers?
