    SSJGQ - if I flush twice will you go away?

    If you say so.  I couldn't possibly hold up to your 2nd round record.  You know, the one with 4 timeouts and 2 6-move resignations handed to you.  Maybe we should just give you a trophy for that.

    Feel free to respond this post 2 or 3 times.  Whatever takes you to where you need to go.

    SSJGQ - very impressive record in Round 2 (two possible wins, 8 definate losses). Since you won't be advancing here is another tournament you can enter:

    No. No need for you to have to spell. Watching you spew is amusing enough for me.

    Let me spell it out for you SSJGQ - my rating was 1364 when tournament started. With 19 wins and 1 loss - what would you expect to happen to my rating? Do you need further clarification?

    Hey Einstein  - the more you win the higher your rating goes. Got it???

    Of the players remaining, 2 are ranked over 1800 and at least 10 more have a ranking over 1700.  The entry for this tournament was capped at being below 1400 at the end of May last year and there are about 25 players through to the next round with a higher current ranking than Ozz.

    I mention this only to highlight that I am sure Ozz will find a lot more to complain about before the tournament ends, especially the fact that the rest of the games in this round will take until May to complete at least.  For instance, the two key games to be decided in group 39 have only had 7 or 8 moves played so far at the time of writing and this round has been going for over three months already.

    Ozz: I do not need, nor desire, your feedback.

    Being as how you're not afraid to complain, let me ask you a question:  Why is someone, ranked 1600 in a 1400 capped tournament, complaining about anything?

    Peace out.  You won't be missed.  And don't worry: This will happen again in the future.

    Looking at your nickname I am wondering how did you manage to enter the lower case letters...

    ONLY ONE POSSIBLE MOVE FOR TOMVALLAES YET HE HAS TAKEN 27 HOURS (AND COUNTING) TO FIGURE OUT HIS NEXT MOVE. HOPEFULLY WHEN THE NEXT ROUND STARTS THE POOR SPORTS WILL HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED AND GENTLEMAN CAN CONTINUE ON WITH THE TOURNAMENT.

    OK BMECK - WHAT'S THE EXCUSE NOW ON TOMVALLAEYS VS ZEK001. LAST MOVE WAS 17 HOURS AGO & CHECKMATE IS UNAVOIDABLE IN 2 MOVES. IF THIS ISN'T CHILDISH STALLING I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS.

    @TheWizardofOz..... If you do not want tournaments to last this long join no vacation tournaments. Chess.com does everything they could, it is up to you to choose the tournament

    Imagine this - the whole tournament held up by 2 guys with a combined 4.5 wins out of 18 games played. This will be my last 3 day tournament until they can prevent this from happening in the future.

    Some players could do well to learn when to resign.
