    Weird timing for me - must've happened after I was timed out this morning.

    Game 5007568

    Good riddance.

    Yes!!! What did I tell you guys? I had him clocked right back when he absolutely hammered erice1 (who was also an engine user) in two successive games.

    He was the highest seed (by far) in a dual tournament I entered earlier this year. That's one less person to worry about :-)

    I think you can get timed out in a tournament even if your opp is banned. I believe clivestraddle won two games that way.

    Tournament games time out automatically 2 days after the timeout period expires.

    I expected that but it didn't happen in the game above. It was right around 4 days.

    It was a lost position, at least, and also you wouldnt have made it through that group even discounting the games against him.
