    Tournament participants will get about 0 or 1 point for beating this player having a rating of 1221, and drop massive rating points if they lose or draw against him. And he is a relatively strong player (when he decides to play and not time out).

    Tournament 11480

    He looks like a kid. Born in 1995?

    I have played him in another tournament. If I remember correctly, he was beating me in one game and then he timed out. Anyway, I think I will avoid this tournament.

    And on the flipside we have a 1800-2000 (2064 highest rating ever) player in a 0-1300 tournie (timed out a lot of games a year and a bit ago - 95% of their lost games is by timeout)

    This guy is at best a rating fraudster, at worst an engine user. He's choosing to play in that bottom-fishers' tournament and let other games time out. If he has any moral values they aren't on public display.

    On the basis that they time out a lot, you should have moved as normal hoping they time out again.

    You have handed them a 6 point advantage over the other players.
