But he can move. Then we have a 2 days TO game. A game that means nothing to the tournament. But... stop it!!!
I'm not in the 2005 Championship. But man, it have been better than the SuperBowl, than the NBA Playoff. I want to see who will win it. And it must happen this year for G*d sake!!!
Something more to think about:
Suppose you are in a tough game in the 2005 Championship, then your opponent's timebank finish, and you, as a "fair" player, as a "gentleman", decide to wait for the automatic TO.
But, surprise, your opponent moves before the auto TO, and send you a game message thanking you for your kindness.
You as a "gentleman" that is pride for your "fairness", keep on playing the game, and then your own timebank ends too.
Then, another surprise, your opponent wasn't as "fair" as you and he TO you at the first chance.
So, man, TO your opponent in the 2005 Championship at the first chance is the fairest thing to do.
It's fair with yourself, you deserve the win. It's fair with your opponent, he has known the rules when he joined in. It's fair with the other competitors, they are waiting for your game to finish the round. It's fair with Russ, he set the 0TO/60TB to have a 2005 Champion until the year end. And above all, it's fair with all the RHP community that wants to have a 2005 Champion in the 2005 year.
Am I talkin only for myself? I'm sure not.
