I just had a game against an opponent finish, so I started a new game, but 3 ply through the game my original opponent decided that he wanted a rematch. We had considered this earlier in the game, but came to no conclusion therefore I created my game. Hence the person deciding on a rematch I chose to resign on the new game I accepted, thinking that I would simply explain my situation to my opponent. I resigned and now I am told that I go down 20 points for resigning 3 ply into the game. HOW is this possible? Only 1.5 moves into the game should not count towards ratings. If this does I see no reason why opponents who choose to accept a game of yours, then suddenly cancel it shouldn't be penalized. This is idiotic.
