    Has anyone had the feeling that in a small group tournament of three the other players have worked in concert against one player? Not had any experience of it myself. Just curious, as I haven't seen it mentioned in the forum. Could be that it doesn't happen...but then pigs can fly.

    I know that in RHP there are about 20,000 other players ganging up on me.

    I haven't experience that myself. However me and 19,999 other players are ganging up on coquette.

    I've often had the feeling in tournaments of every size that the players are actually trying to beat me. Your conspiracy theory is the final confirmation! That's the only explanation for my repeated failures to dominate RHP.

    They beat me and then they mock me with their cryptic codes like 'GG' and 'WWGPD?' It's maddening I tell you, maddening!

    The higher rated players could agree two quick draws between each other leaving the third lower rated player in effect playing two against one.

    "WWGPD"?
    Stands for "What would General Petrosjan do?", of course.
    And he would do an positional exchange sac, probably
