    Let's say you got paired with a player in a tournament group that you don't wanna play against (let's leave the reason unknown), and so you resign both games against that player without even moving.

    Does the chess etiquette demands that you resign against the other players in that group?

    I see what you mean, the tournament's ruined anyway so it's your choice.

    Don't know what the etiquette says, but I would sure be pissed off when I'm in a group and someone gets 6 points for free and when that someone wins the group and I become second. (if I would not have progressed to the next round anyway, I wouldn't care about it).

    You can also think for yourself and realise that it is not fair to the other players in the group.

    I wouldn't mind playing with a person I don't like.
    If he is pissing me off, then I put him on my ignore list and go on playing.

    You're right and just convinced me.

    Its annoying but there is no way in hell I would give that player a "leg up" in the tournament by resigning both games.

    If they are on your "ignore" list then the only "in game message" you will get is anything they say on their final move.

    Well done!
    Hope for you that you will not meet him in another tournament group, otherwise your stats and rating get ruined
