    I played Arayn and it went well until I was in a winning position. Then she? stopped. If you look at her games, most end in timeout wins for opponent. Presumably to get her rating up as most are against higher rated players. Unless my reading of the way RHP works is wrong. I have only been here for a month or so, so I could be wrong. (Bit more than a month it seems, where does the time go)

    So Arayn moved over a million times
    Given her rating that's a million crimes
    In the chess world she will not be missed
    But maybe she played half pi$$hed
    And now I am all out of rhymes

    A win by timeout is exactly the same points-wise as a win by resignation. There's a rating chart for sub-2100 players at the top of Thread 80000.
    If one of the players has a provisional rating the number of rating points is halved.

    Oh, and she moved 3 hours ago.

    Arayn is a man. He's a fellow South African. We've spoken.

    Oh the English; such a way with words. You and GOAD and others...

    It's one thing I never picked up when I lived there.

    Cappy Strange please try harder
    All your verses lack real ardour
    I would love to thrash you at chess
    And put you under great duress

    Apologies to Arayn should you speak to him. All I had to go by was the Avatar.

    Well it's not an insult to be a woman and South Africans aren't that easily offended 🙂. I thought he was a woman too but he pre-emptively told me that he was a guy before I made the mistake of using "she" to refer to him - he must get this a lot yet he hasn't changed the picture so I assume he's comfortable. Good for him.
