    last group was too tough for me, I didn't deserve as many points as I got. Thanks for competition.

    Matemaatikko is currently on vacation!
    They have 3 days 6 hours of vacation time left, but may be back sooner.

     

    According to me this type of players are losers. Why are they playing Quick Knockouts, if they want to go on vacation & waste time, I can’t understand. They are not only wasting our time but there individual time also. It’s my suggestion to the admin, that players on vacation for more than 1 month should be terminated from the Quick tournaments.

    1st place has a closed account. I suspect that 2nd place will advance in their place.

    2 moves and you are in checkmate. What do you do? Do you ...

    A) resign

    B) complete the game to the bitter end

    or

    C) go on vacation

    @TransmaniaconMC Thanks! Not that much life left in this round. If one player has a win and a loss vs another, and yo have two ties vs that player, does that give you same number of tiebreaker points?

    Your opponent is currently on vacation! 
    They have 1½ month of vacation time left, but may be back sooner.


    Ahhhh!!!!!!!

    @Ipolitas your group is far from being a tie,there's still plenty of life in it. If it finishes with 2 or more players having equal points then the highest tiebreak scorer goes through. If points scored and tiebreak points are equal then both (or all) go through.

    Looks like my group is heading to a tie. What are the tie breakers? what if players are still even?

    That can be true also, agreed on that one.

    I agree withletsseewhatyougot. Going from 1556 to 2006 in the span of 1 round has to raise some questions. If not questioned, it opens up the way for others to throw games until their rating drops enough to enter a tournament of their choice. Or create a new user name with a rating 200-500 lower just to enter tournaments. *Oohh, time to pick a new username, there has to be a 800-1000 tournament somewhere*

    I tend to disagree, you never know your true ability till contested by the strogest. In this scenario, you have to beat your potential in your current chalenge against the strongest... Every one can loose, its a mined game as testing your current abilities. Good luck and never shoot a player for being good! We always do that when someone mess up and we are the biggest fan. This one is opposite, encouragement to the best or perceived to be, and  we have a chalange to over come. Not only yourself as most look at the rating then lacking the phycololgy in playing good. There are always underdogs on both sides of the equations. Its up to you not up to him.

    Have to agree with the last post.The player in question had an entry rating of 1596, which is fair enough and can't be questioned. You don't get an NM rating in the bottom of a cornflakes box,so to me it's a moral question to enter a tournament knowing your ability far exceeds the ability of the rest of the field.

    So... how exactly am I playing against a NM, rated 2006 player in this tournament? I am raising the BS flag
