    Since yesterday, I'm getting hacked.
    This means a lot of my games have turned into a set-piece with the knight attacking my queen and rock, which means I have a disadvantage in almost every game. Please help me because I like this website [gid]http://www.redhotpawn.com/core/playchess.php?gameid=10694200&cbqsid=2564[/gid]

    Hi,

    to likn a game you use the [ gid ] tag (without the spaces).

    That gives Game 10694200.

    I will take a look at the game.

    Edit:

    I did now. You signed up to a thematic tournament
    Tournament 19908
    and all games start with the same set up. So if the opening gievs a big disadvangate to one side it gives the same advantage in the other game.

    If you don't want to play, just resign your games before two moves are complete and your rating stays intact.

    I believe it's before three moves, not two. But before quitting, do a little research on the Cochrane gambit.

    Ah, yes indeed, you've been hacked by an earworm. It affects the mind and makes you forget you entered a thematic tournament. 😕

    Thanks to Ponderable for caring enough about this site to take an initiative to be of help which he has consistently done. "Originally posted by HandyAndy "I believe it's before three moves, not two." Thank you, too, for the single digit correction.

    Since the OP has five games with only two complete moves, the "single digit correction" - as you put it - is crucial.

    I'd rather think he "aaprreciates" it. 😕

    Actually the trash bin vanishes after two full moves (four half moves) have been played. This is due to the possibility of a Fools' mate. For the deletion of tournament games the same criterion holds
    So the info "before two moves are completed" could be understood as being true, and I feel not as misinformer.

    However in the counting of thematic tournament the nbumber shown after thje first half-move is "2" already.
