    I have just been timed out six hours over. When I set the settings I must have made an error. It was at the end game, I had a rook over the opponents bishop and more pawns and better position. This player had a higher 2000 plus rating and I was surprised that they would want to win this way. I've let games go over for up to 42 days.

    Am I just moaning unreasonably and should accept that I was timed out legitimately?

    No wonder they took the skull...only way for them to win!

    I understand how you feel though. You could ask for a rematch!

    Of course you are, and not everyone is as generous as us, you know.

    Bring on the skulls!

    You offered him the skull, he took it. What's the big deal?

    You were in a sprint tournament, time management being one of the key points.

    6 hours is a lot, considering it would have auto TOed in another 42 hours anyway.

    I am greatful for your replies and will take them on board,the game was a sprint and time management being part of the game.Being hypocritical about time outs and just being a moaner.
    thank you all for your comments.

    my dad also plays in rhp...he had a game where his opponent timed out but my dad (being generous) didn't claim the skull...so the game continued on for a while...unfortunately(on the same game), dad's time run out...and the guy took the skull

    i bet dad wouldn't be so generous next time
