Unscrupulous player abuses vacation - Queen Pawn

Posted by Chemwong on 10/16/12 at 10:44 AM

Dear  all,

I have received complaint concerning vacation abuse in this tournament, where the situation was different from the usual ranting you would see in most other tourneys.

There was a player who took vacation from Augest to now. While it seems normal to take a break from chess due to real life issue, he was reported to play live chess, with 20 pages game achieve, during this period. I can find little excuse for this player, if any.

Starting from now I would personally inspect long vacationed games and will post the name of player if the vacation last for too long. They may be kicked at my discerntion or after a voting, particularly in the case of dileberately delaying games.

Thanks for your attention. Feel free to report vacational abuse.
