    I think he is talking about buying vacation days.

    If you're wondering how to put your games on vacation, you don't have to do anything. All of your games automatically go on vacation as soon as any game has less than one hour remaining.

    Some debate, others are abusive.

    And your delusions about the vacation system continues.

    Interesting group. Four of the players timed out.  Says a lot about the dedication and resolve of those four players.  You have to wonder if they thought about how long a 2000+ person tournament with 3 days/move and vacations would take, before they joined the tournament.  As for the ratings of this group; not really significant, pretty irrelevant.

    Interesting group. Four of the players timed out. Says a lot about the vacation system. You have to wonder if the second round had started much earlier if these guys would still be active in chess.com. As for the ratings of this group; not really a good example, pretty atypical.

    2nd round started finally ... thank you pbpostma ...

    Shouldn't chess.com put the higher rated players in higher group when one round is completed ? ... I see some player in 1400-1600 group, 2nd round with 2221 rating/points ... whats point in placing them in 1400-1600 group ?

    What i would like to know is how many players good enough to win this tournament but have simply just died of old age before it has finished

    Well if that's the case, then it was imbecilic not to resign, but even there he has no monopoly on that commodity.
