    @Dyl-icious...haha...me too, he's ranked 2184!! At some level, I like it; it's nice to play against a strong player, because perhaps I'll learn something. On the otherhand, everyone in our group is just playing for second place.

    Yeah, good one. Guy in my bracket is ranked over 2000.

    I suggest that players who take vacation time should not be able to play any games in chess.com during the vacation. Wouldn't that make sense. There is a member in our group having a maximum vacation time and still playing every day several games. That's simple harrasment, no polite chess, where I'm used to.

    I agree it is unfair, but sadly there isn't much we can do about it, less we give them satisfaction in our pain..

    I'm trying to say that everyone who just joined chess.com crush all of us. If they join this tournament as a 1200, when they have a 2000 USCF rating, it's not fair to us at all. That's why people are suggesting to increase the 5 game minimum to something much higher.

    2000 is not between 1201 and 1400

    I dont know if I've played any of the apparent cheaters or if I ever will, chess is a game of honour, to play without honour and win is a diss-honourable win and has less value than an honourable loss, plus be warned there is always a chance that there is a David amongst the goliaths...

    I'm going to get 6.5 out of 10 points. For me, that's a miracle. For the cheaters that enter this tournament, they think I stink at chess. Someone should really put the 5 game minimum up to a much bigger number. If that happened, then the winner might not be Mr. 1549 ever single time!

    Some early wins got my hopes up, but I'm about to be eliminated by superior play. Good games all!

    Need to have tournaments that require a person to have something like 20 rated games.  People that are way higher rated just start a new account and join this tournament.  We have 1 in group 29 also DiAlexo.  Way to go cheaters...

    Why is there a difference in tie break points on those who have completed and won 4 games an d no losses..i have 2 tie break points, yet there are other players with the same game score that have been awarded 6 tie break points!??..

    Timed out on all my games. Computor problems. Maybe a good thing when you see the leaders are mostly cheaters.

    There is no problem if you get over 1400. The only thing is if someone is 1600 or over, it is obvious this is another cheater.

    You stay in the tourney. The starting rating is the one that counts.
