    I personnally have lost all respect for this game. I now know that most people cheat at  chess to win. I am sure that even the top players cheat to get to the top. It reminds me of the tour de France. Too bad for what I once thought was a great game.

    How come I am the only player in my group with the proper rating 1001 - 1200?

    Why do they let a 1933 rated player continue in these tournaments. An obvious cheater with no sense of fair play. I think we should all resign, because he is the obvious winner(CHEATER).

    I,m playing unrated player who keeps taking vacation just as his time is about to run out then comes back, makes 1 move then repeats process again, making game last so long. Can anything be done about this, likeconly one vacation timeout per round?

    before the tounament started, the cheaters intentionally loss to decrease their own rating to compete in the tournaments they believe they can win.  They value theirselves so cheap.

    People are complaining about rating of opponent.

    Note that when the tournament started the person's rating must be in the range but later as time moves on he might have improved his rating by playing  many other games.Rating is considered when tournament started.

    the cheaters have problem with their self-esteem.  They lack confidence and value their self so cheap.

    There will be no legit winner in this tournament. The leaders are all cheaters and one is over 1600. How can ordinary players win when the honnest players are under 1200? I guess wwwchess.com will never understand our frustration.

    my brother is playing in the tounament where the rating should be under 1250. he played well and his rating goes to 1260 after some hard win. but then he met with someone rating 1455 in the 2nd round.

    Another tournament were a cheater will win. Why so many players well over 1200 allowed to join?

    i agree with you ernme1, unrated people can't ply it is not fair cos they could be unrated in this kind of game but maybe have a hundred games won in blitz mode.

    e.g., last tournament i've made you have to have a minimum of 10 games ended and something like 50% of game won. this is for keeping stuff fair and equal for everyone
