    Thanks for returning the favour Bedemil! I resigned from our first game and you did the same on our second. I hope others will follow the same courtesy and keep this tournament more fun.

    Three things to do if one is losing a game: 1. Resign; 2. Play to the finish to see the result; 3. Continue playing to the finish and hope that the opponent makes a blunder to salvage a draw or even a win. But always keep the sportsmanship and be fair.

    "genuinely on vacation", that's the word. But I hope players will also have the genuine sportmanship to resign a lost game, like what I do and I say it very, very proudly. The problem in our society is that, we tend to let go of small abuses more and more. To the point that people are now used to abuses and corruption everywhere. As if, it's the norm of society now.

    Staff will investigate if you report, but it's often the case players are genuinely on vacation, but have to keep up-to-date in 'non-vacation' tournaments...

    Hey gamit-man, thx btw for the link to report abuse. But the thing is, you can only disable chat and block the player who is abusing the system. There is an option to report the abuse but I'll try to study that. Chess.com needs paying members but some members abuse the system which drive away those who are thinking of subscribing to become paying members of Chess.com

    Hey gamit-man, if you go for vacation, then go and enjoy your vacation. Why use this excuse to abuse the system and spoil the fun for the other players. Let's keep Chess.com a clean, fun and fair chess site!

    If you think someone has crossed the line in terms of vacation abuse, feel free to report them here  https://support.chess.com/customer/portal/emails/new

    But i really don't see your argument

    I can wait for 3 days move but to wait for more days after that, especially when the player is losing and goes on vacation is something else. If you go for this strategy, I think you ought to be banned as well. Players like you spoil the fun in the tournament.

    It's summer time, people go on vacation.

    The only thing spoiling this tournament for me is your constant whining.

    You've even visited half a dozen games (other than your own) to tell players to get a move onYell

    If you can't wait 3 days for a move, don't enter a 3 days/move tournament

    My game with doubledogcatchhttp://www.chess.com/echess/game?id=90671562, he waits for 3 days until 56 minutes before every move then goes for a vacation. I hope everyone agrees with me that this kind of strategy is not acceptable; that these kinds of players should be disqualified and be banned from tournaments at Chess.com. This is one of the reasons why some are hesitant to become members at Chess.com. Would anyone please care to comment.

    I would like to express my recognition and appreciation for falcon37! You have my respect my friend for being such a "Gentleman of the Game". You showed such tournament courtesy and sportmanship. You are the real winner of this tournament. I salute you!

    My game with doubledogcatch http://www.chess.com/echess/game?id=90671562, he waits until 59 minutes before every move then goes for a vacation. I wonder what kind of strategy he's trying to prove. Would anyone please care to comment.

    I'm not complaining. I'm just dissapointed that, I thought, I'm spending my time with fellow artists like myself.

    Then why do you keep complaining? Are we holding you up?

    Chess is an art my friend. An artist is always passionate. Passion never goes on a holiday.

    It's holiday time, what do you expect?

    Win or lose, I'm here to play and enjoy the game. I hope some players would have the professional courtesy to do the same and to please stop abusing the system by going on vacation unnecessarily.
