    Just the other day, somebody claimed there were no tournaments for the under 1200. I remember there were 30 minute tournaments on the same list.  Ah yes.

    There are 30 minute quads and 15/10 tournaments every day. I wouldn't waste my time playing in them though. They are full of suspicious players.

    There is a 30 0 quad coming up in less than 30 minutes!

    There are already 11 people signed up!

    What's wrong with the 15/10 tourneys? I've played quite a few, and only once saw something that was suspicious (sandbagging).

    Nothing. He's new and his first question was about how to avoid people in tournaments by blocking them.

    Every one I tried to play in was a joke. The minimum 1500 tournaments aren't as bad but still had brand new 1800 accounts, one guy was rated 2000 after playing 2 games and I had enough time to look at those games before the tournament started and every move matched stockfish so I just withdrew. The open tournaments I tried were full of 800-1200 new accounts that were destroying 15-1600 players. That's just dumb IMO. Not gonna waste my time.

    You have only played in two rapid chess tournaments. You quit both of them early.

    In one, a 15 10 tournament, you lost your first round game to a guy who has been a member since 2008 and then you immediately quit the tournament. 

    The 30 0 tournament you played recently you quit the tournament after you drew a game with somebody who had only been a member for 30 days.  You left bizarre comments on the guy's page claiming that the draw by agreement had been unintentional.  Sounds like you fat fingered it. 

    / Not exactly a clear case for your theory.

    / The fact that you are running your opponent's games through your computer before you play is pretty bizarre too.

    The drawn game was because titled Tuesday caused server load issues and the game got aborted. I didn't know that when I left those notes. I never said I personally played any of those new accounts did I? I watched their games while waiting for the next round. There were also tournaments I entered and withdrew after checking profiles and seeing all the new accounts. Oh and btw, I'm not new. I've been coming here off and on for years but it's nice to see you still acting like a know it all jacka$$.

    You were the one who felt compelled to sidetrack a thread about people wanting more live rapid tournaments with your unsubstantiated cheating insinuations.

    / If you admit your notes about that draw were wrong, why not erase them and apologize to your opponent?
