    Something that occured to me and I wanted to know if RHP has a safeguard in place for this.

    Let's say I see some really highrated player on vacation. What's stopping me from setting up a low TO/TB game with them, then when they don't move (since they're on vacation) going and claiming a win?

    Not that I personally would do this, but it occured to me that it would be very easy to do unless timeouts can only be claimed after both sides move.

    anyone?

    You can't claim a win until three moves are completed, unless it's a clan or tournament game. If it's a clan or tournament game, you can claim a win, but the game will be unrated.
