    hey now smartens, that smarts.  Remember that this tournament started way back in April, and I had only been playing here for a little over a month.  Over this time I had a record of 18 wins and 1 loss, where my one loss was my second game ever, and I timed out.  I'm sorry that I was only rated 1570 then and that this upsets you, but I resent the accusation that I purposely engineered it so that I'd play in this bracket.

    Normal procedure is for the next round to start as soon as the prior one finished.

    I agree, Rob.  No notice.  Not having played many tournaments, is that the nor procedure, or is there notice as with the beginning of the tournament?

    I have been waiting for this tournament to advance to the next round for weeks and return from a 1 day trip to find out that without warning it has started and pretty much finished for me because ii've been timed out on 6 games. How very disappointing and what a complete shambles this tournament has proven to be. I think round 2 should be re started as i imagine their are many players who find themselves in the same position as me. Add your comments if you agree or disagree (as it should be an open debate) Rob

    i hae a holiday coming up and would hate to be kicked out if i disapear for two weeks , a maxmum 20 day vacation at a time would be better

    Yes.  Annoying.  If no contact via email, telephone on file (?), etc... then perhaps something has happened to the poos fellow.  Sickness?  Death?  No response from him/her?  No other action in other games?  Just a black-out...?

    I always like giving the benefit of the doubt.

    But once, or if, it proves to be a dud, then maybe a mass mailing to the person.

    Black list.

    No contact in other games.

    Send over Dennis Hopper...?

    I agree with Bulay on his proposal, in the second round the admin must take the consensus of the qualifiers to amend the rules, that no vacation will be allowed in inline with the rules of the 5th chess com. quick knockout.

    BULAY

    Haloo every one on this train, only one day vacation as it's one day per Move. and let's vote for that. and tel those who arrange this tournement.

    45 day vacation for a losser, what is that???

    I don't expect mr Doherty back from vacation. It appears he is the Dean of some High School. So it's most likely that this whole scene is a prank from one of his students. Patience, patience pa.............

    we have informed the people in charge what's going on here and they did nothing. I don't want to be a part of this nonsense anymore. I quit this OXImoronic tournament!

    I think castration would be fitting for this idiot on vacation

    alphius

    thank God this is a quick knockouts tournament. i can't imagine how long would a regular or a long one last?

  • 6 years ago

    alphius

    i really don't understand why the people in charge here don't let us play and let those 2 players enjoy their vacation!

    hey freinds i have reported the players name(who is unnecessarily delaying the tournament) to Patzer who is regulating this tournament ...and he has replied me that he is going to do something to stop him....

    Two remaining games, both involving the same two players, neither of which will affect who progresses. Also in both of them, the player who is in a badly losing position is on vacation and has over a month's time left.

    Get ready for a long wait, folks- looks like the jerk's gonna stall as long as he can.
