Does it seem like half of the games you start online end up timing out?
That is anoying but what is worse is that they take a vacation and leave the board on your computer and one can not get rid of it without resigning. I have had this happen in a tournament and have left messages to staff but nothing happens??????
Isn't there a time limit for vacation?
I wish people would time out on me...to get the sweet sweet points...but no...they always come back...bigger, better, stronger, faster
I dislike how my rating is higher than it should be because of people timing out. I like to earn my rating, even if it's low.
Ratings vary quite a lot even over short periods... it would be interesting to have your median rating also in statistics.
I agree, although, maybe mean instead. Median is exaxtly in the middle. If you start out at 700 and play/study well and raise to 2,700, the median should be 1,700. Of course, my example would be baby Kasparov to world champion Kasparov.
How can I beat the system by avoiding theory but still get a theoretical edge?
