    Perhaps the strategy is to win on time because the opponent in the meantime has died (out of boredom!!). lol.  Tongue out

    Two more games are there to finish.

    I dont know, what are they doing with this.

    Every one taking their maximum time allowed + vacationtime to delay other players.

    Arthur... there are 3 reasons:

    1, to think over the game and win. (Yeah like they would :P)

    2, Maybe they are busy. (Like me, but I always finish all my moves first)

    3, MAYBE THEY JUST WANT US TO WAIT!~

     

    yeah... -___-?

    Damn, I have this guy who obviously lost the game (http://www.chess.com/echess/game.html?id=10534072), and now he's "on vacation" for his exam.  Before he waited for the last few hours before he moved, and now he's doing this when it's a forced mate...

    Why would he do that, I don't think that helps him in some way?

    Hey,

    I have a question about the tournament ...

    Do you keep the score that you achieved in the first round? Or will the score be deleted when the second round starts???

  • 6 years ago

    _Ramon_

    I'm ready for the second round

    hopefully I do it just like the first round,

    to do better is impossible for me :D
