I have organised the "African Chess Success" competition and I cannot understand what has happened in Round 1 - Table 3: the winner has been eliminated and the looser has been declared winner; have a look and tell me what do you think:
Kind regards from Burkina Faso
If you look at the winners profile page you'll see that his/her account has been closed (for cheating i'd imagine). I guess that means the loser goes through as the winner can't play any more.

It is a simple matter to check yourself to see this is not the case.
Appears to be a bug. If you raise a bug report staff may be able to figure out what happened.
Its not a bug. Its because the winner's account is closed so the quialification goes to the 2nd placed player.
Whoops. The account is closed by the user or staff but not for cheating. No bug report required.
I was more concerned about looking for the box indicating cheating that was not there.
I can't believe I lost this game...
