    I lose a lot of games, largely through horrid mistakes. I have always learnt much from studying the games of truly great players, though.

    What can I learn from these two matches, I wonder?

    the hard-fought:

    Game 1503321

    and the impressive:

    Game 1503327

    ???

    I'd really like to improve my rating. If this be the way forward, perhaps even I have a chance.

    Thoughts, members???

    those 2 games don't count since the game has not progressed for 3 turns

    maybe they just didn't want to play each other. you know the status of each of them is much higher if they dont play and one gets a win over the other.

    I don't think it says so on the rules. I don't remember it and i did a quick check and i saw nothing toconfirm that...

    Edit: Too much text on the first go

    FAQ

    What happens if my opponents stop playing?
    Occasionally this does happen. If it is within three moves (remember moves are counted in pairs) you can simply delete the game. You will not be able to claim the win as the game is too immature.

    Why don't we just throw the pieces out of the window and not bother playing chess any more?

    After all, if this is how the 'top' players behave, what on earth is to become of the rest of us?

    Sorry to rock the boat here...

    I already had games deleted on me and there was no sign of the messege "whichever colour wins"...

    Sorry if i'm missing the obvious and i don't want to be a nag, but where does it say the neither side lost points?

    why don't you check incub's rating history, click on each single of the green bars?

    i didn't do that for two reasons:
    1- I'm not thinking they did that for some special reason, i jus t find it odd..
    2-the ratings aren't immediattely freshed after a game, on the green bars that is. At least mine aren't(or don´t seem to be).So if the game is recent i can't seem to know nothing about it. Plus, i didn't see no dates in the game you provided so if the game is a past one how can anyone check it? :s
    Once again I'm say nothing about nobody's game. I'm new in here and know nothing about this. I just find odd stopping games like that...

    Nah, I've deleted a bunch of games, but they don't show up in my games as resigned, there is a difference between resigning and hitting the trash can icon

    The reason why Akizy resign those games was probably because he/she plays a very limited amounts of games on this site and that the gameload got to big. Instead he/she resigned all his games in that tournament at an early stages when they didn´t affect his/her rating.
