    He didn't resign. He was timed out.

    Yes - in last time he have no time for his many games. I have timeouted him once, but in that game my position was winning anyway.

    Does anyone know EveRyDay's real name?
    I'm guessing he must be at least a FM to play 200+ games, making 2000+ moves per month at his level.

    He was timed out whilst he was in Hospital recovering from an operation. Some users will go to any length to protect a 100% unbeaten record....

    I'm pretty sure timeouts in tournaments are taken automatically after a certain amount of time in order to not slow down the process. So, she may or may not have clicked the skull.

    I have been played with him and I still have games in progress against him and I can say for sure - he is not cheater.

    I've not played him yet. For what it's worth, I also believe he is the real deal.

    Me too, from reading many of his posts I think he's genuine (I can't say for sure as I don't know him), just happens to be a very good chess player. There should be some forum bans being dished out for some of the accusations that have been made, without proof.

    The offending posts should be deleted too, calling someone a cheat isn't much worse than cheating yourself, especially when you don't have a clue.

    there are forum rules which state that no-one should accuse anyone of cheating in the forums - if you feel that someone has done so then the post should be reported to the mods

    as a subscriber you should have an "alert" option for each post

    I've played him a number of games. Found him friendly and he totally out played me but I didn't get that feeling I get against an engine, that no matter what I do, I have no chance.

    Despite our rating difference I felt that had I just played a little better I could have got a favorable result as some of his moves were not best - they were just better than mine!

    Forum bans are indeed being applied. Please remember that cheating accusations are not welcome in the forums, and that any concerns should be sent to the game moderators (a list of whom can be found from the 'volunteers' tab on the 'site map' screen).
