    Hi there,

    I am currently playing someone who has lost over 1000 rating points due to timing out hundreds of games. Hey now seem to have started playing again.

    Their rating is 500ish now. I don't think it's fair to play them since they are technically stronger then me yet I'll lose loads of points if I lose my two games.

    How can I handle this? It's a tournament game so I can't delete. I have already sent feedback on this but no reply or action yet

    You can give up a torunament game before two moves are made and lose no rating points.

    Well you can shrug off the effect of losing more Points than you should (if losing) or you can try to Play very slow and hope that yur Opponent will vanish again Timing out your games 😉

    Does this not qualify as sandbagging?

    Sandbagging is the intetion to lose Rating Points, so one can Play lower rated Players.
