    One of those guys is in my group...

    That player moves every 4, 5 days as he goes on holiday after every 3 days for a few days. I wrote to chess.com about the guy, but they said it is not against the rules...

    It was really annoying, but now I am a kind of happy because 3 days ago chess.com banned guy at the first place in my group because of cheating, so I am going to advance :)

    (If they would have played faster chess.com would have banned the guy after starting the next round.)

    I'm equally confident about the 800-1000 tournament that I'm playing in.

    I don't pay much attention to the legit 1800+ that I play in matches. But I'm playing an 1800+ in the second round of a 1200-1400 tournament. I'm also playing a 1200+ who's been rated 1800+. Maybe YOU'RE not a sandbagger and that's great but they're out there.

    I too joined this tournament many moons ago when my rating was like 1333 and have since improved drastically. Don't assume everyone is just sandbagging :p

    Really? You've been a member for over 2 years.

    yeah the same for me too. I joined this tournament to start playing correspondence chess. My rating has been growing ever since May, but its stable now so if i should join any tourney again I'll be in the right group. But actually this happens for every Chess.com tournament so get used to it!

    I can't speak for the 1800 guy but this was the first tournament I joined and there was no other choice then to enter the 1200-1400 bracket as a new player. I'm guessing that this is a problem specifically confined to the 1200-2400 group.

    An 1865 rated player in my group ... great ! WTF he's doing in this tournament. Players like him take away the fun in chess.

    Hope the win against all low rated players makes him really proud.
