    I love how this tournament is for players who play QUICKLY, and one of the players in my group has taken a month of vacation and still going.....

    Well I made it to the second round of my first tournement and now I'm eliminated; what fun. I thank the other players; some of you are super good. In the 1400 - 1600 range group we had one player improve his rating to 2000; that's 400 point rise in 4 months. As usual, I learned a lot, made some bonehead moves,, but, most of all had a lot of fun. Good luck to those that advanced.

    And the dude was giving another guy a spray for the exact same thing! Poor form.

    Unreal...28 days? Look at my group FJacob has not completed a single game...went on vacation for 2 weeks, lets time run down to 3 hours, then takes another vacation. Absolutely disgusting poor sportsmanship.

    According to their vacation time left 28 days. Its going to be another long wait for Round 3 to start. haha

    How long can these idiots go on vacation? This is ridiculous...

    FJacob,

    No problem at all! Just take it easy man! Although you are right that these tournments take ages there's still always a player willing to play a game here on chess.com, which wouldn't be true before the internet age, right?

    Sometimes we (me included) complain for such small (although justified) things that we forget to enjoy what we have, don't we?

    And while we are waiting for round 2 please feel free to invite me for a game of your choice!

    Well, you didn't have to resign, specially with 7thbishop still on vacations. Nonetheless, I guess I should thank you and apologize for being so rude o/. All the best on future tournaments.

    FJacob,

    As promised, games finished!

    I love chess and would in no way purposefully delay a chess tournment. It was due to personal motives that it has been impossible for me to play faster. I therefore considered you deserved an explanation and so gave it to you. Hope you understand!

    Well, it's not so much a matter of breaking the rules, but of stalling the "Quick Knockouts" Tournament of over 150 people.

    This was supposed to be a tournament for those who play fast (under 3h), and players should've considered it before joining.

    Nevertheless it's good to know that you're not trolling the tournament on purpose, which I'm not sure can be said about 7thbishop...

    I am truly sorry! I am trying to hurry up. However, most of the times I can only play once a day (which is within the time limit). Also, 7thBishop is on holidays. In the case 7thBishop does not come back I hope to finish more or less by the end of his holidays.

    I should nevertheless remind you that no-one, neither me, nor him, is breaking the rules here, as the tournment as been set from the beginning, one with a 24-hour limit and vacation time. It is also a fact that everyone who joined agreed to these rules. In spite of these facts, I repeat that I am truly trying to finish my last games within the shortest timeframe possible, as a courtesy to all players at the tournment.

    Best games to all.

    And thanks to WallStrKnight and 7thBishop the round is still going on. I wish them very painful defeats...
