    Bye everyone!! Was a short but disappointing stay on the site. Too many restrictions on non subsribers, too many insensitive members and above all a host of engine users. It is better to play against the machine, played 35000 games against this in the last 10 years than playing on this site.

    All of his games seem to have been against players who were 300-500 points below him- his rating was over 2000 before he began resigning. There seems to be a bit of a non sequitor here.

    Good riddance.

    Not only that, something doesn't make sense. 😕

    You couldn't even last 3 months?
    Pfft, I've had games last longer than that

    To be fair, sad to hear this. Was messaging him as I was one of his last six current games. Couldn't understand why he'd resigned as he was technically up in the game. Would personally hate to think I was playing a load of computers out there, but I guess I'll never know. The non-subscriber issue doesn't really hold water in my book as the easy solution is to simply become one. Still, will go down as my biggest ratings scalp win I guess, and I've had one of two since I've been on RHP. Probably not the way I like to win though tbh.....

    I think your complaints are misplaced. I've encountered very few insensitive members, find the restrictions on non subscribers to be minor, and have learned a great deal from the members here. As far as engines go, I wouldn't know, (since you don't need an engine to beat me) Sorry you don't agree, but maybe you need a machine as a opponent.
