    here's the situation...gentleboy3 sends me a message requesting a game..but never challenged me.. so i challenged him. After 3 moves he has ceased to move and this is a one day per move game. Out of curiousity I checked his games in progress..ALL HAVE ENDED WITH RESIGNATION WITHIN A FEW MOVES??????!!!! Any ideas on what his deal is???

    My guess is that he is intentionally lowering his rating. [Sandbagging]
    So just wait for the skull to appear next to his name on the 'my games' page or wait for a resignation. If neither occur, then play on.

    His highest rating was 920 and he wants to lower that? That's some extreeeeeeeme sandbagging.

    Sandbagging or not, I see his behaviour very dificult to explain.

    Not for bagging sand, not for resigning after a handful of moves.
