    In Gamma Hardcore Free for All Dual I notice that one of the duels have ended in two draws after only 6 moves in both matches. The result is off course that both players progress to the next round with minimal effort.

    Is this allowed? Is it fair play? And how long will the tournaments go on if more people start doing this?

    Yes

    I don't think so, but there's really not much to do about it...

    And how long will the tournaments go on if more people start doing this?
    Hard to tell. Probably a little longer than now đŸ™„

    Then check out the Mareades Grouped Random Tournament.
    Group 11: Marko Krale, he resigned all 6 games.
    But I guess that he must have a good reason to do that.
    I mean why should you enter, if you only want to resign .
    Bad for your ratings also.

    Not if you resign before 2(?) moves have been completed

    How can that be?
    You give up the game (resign) ---> you lose the game ---> your rating goes down. Looks logical to me.
    Unless there is something in the rules that I don't know about.

    A game is unrated until more than 2 moves have been made. So if you resign without moving, it has no adverse effect on your rating, or beneficial effect on your opponent's. It like the game didn't happen. Still counts as a loss, however.

    In another dual tournie after losing the first game, I politely asked my opponent to resign explaining that we would both progress if he did. He politley refused. I lost both games.
