Mass Resignations

Jun 22, 2009, 8:13 PM |

I am a touch confused this morning.  I had two games going in a team match between The EU and Team Australia.  My opponent, having just cracked the 2500 mark resigned his games with me which were only just getting out of the opening book.  My opponent is now rated under 2000.  He must have gone on a mass resignation spree.

I have to wonder.  The only reasons I can think of that anyone would do this is to (a) get their rating down so they can bash weaker players or (b) they are quitting chess.

A seems like a cowards act.

I wonder if this goes on a lot...
