PLAYING AGAINST YOUR OWN TEAM

    Hi, I have been assigned to play against a team I already belong to. It just happens that I belong to both groups.

    One is the "Animal Lovers" group, while the other is the "US Chess Federation" group.

    I really don't want to play against the US Chess Fed Group, so how can this game be cancelled without losing my rating?

    Thanks,

    It's too late. You had to cancel your entry into the team match before the match began.

    When I first noticed this situation a few years ago when I was playing in team matches, it struck me there could be conflict of interest and therefore thrown games to benefit one or the other team, especially in team tournaments. I am surprised (still) that it is allowed -- my opinion is that any player belonging to both teams should be prevented from playing for either side.

    OK, so I will resign my game.
