    Check out this game Game 2220314. The game was going along at a cracking pace until the other day. Now nothing, just me and his trickling timebank...:'(

    If my opponent loses his provisional status before I do and then resigns the game does the ratings rule below work in favour of him and against me?

    Exerpt from FAQ's: If you have a non-provisional rating and you play a provisional-rated player, then you receive (or lose) only half the number of rating points you would normally. If the provisionally-rated player has played fewer than five games, then their rating is treated as 1200 when calculating your rating.

    If when the game ends your opponent is non-provisional you gain or lose the full points based on the rating formula.

    That's it.
