I have a game in a tournament against an opponent who I see hasn't moved for 57 days. I suppose it's possible he has left the site. Anyway, I have made one move as white in game 1 and my opponent's timebank is depleting, so I'll eventually get a skull to click. In game 2 my opponent has not yet moved and the time is not being counted down - he is still showing as 7 days to move plus full timebank. What happens to this game if he never moves?
I think this is the procedure:
(1) These games are 7/7 thinking times games. That means that you first have to wait out the 14 days. If he chose to move, then he is entitled to during this period of time.
(2) If you see any skull, then click it, then you win the game, but you don't win any rating points.
(3) If you don't see the skull, then the games will be terminated anyway within a few days. You win the games, but you don't win any rating points.
(4) If you win the games, by time or otherwise, you win your group this round, and you will progress to next round.
But don't click of any garbage bin, even if it is there. That will terminate the game, and then I don't know what will happen.
