    "Ooooh! They were within the rating band when they entered the tournament all those months ago! They've obviously improved since then, it would be unfair to remove them from the Tournament just for getting better at chess"

    And all the other lame excuses people try and use to defend these laughable situations.

    Send him a pm and tell him he can resign his games now without affecting his rating.

    I entered this tournament when I thought that would be 'my band'.

    Tournament 1973

    Am I a good guy?

    I did not win this tournament despite (now) being well above the band, although I wasn't when I entered.

    The likely winner in Tournament 1441 will be kicked out by me very soon due to time out.

    Those things can happen too.

    You're kicking yourself out Aiko? That doesn't make any sense whatsoever!

    Anything can happen. The tourney wouldn't been easy if I played on, it just didn't feel right, besides I already have 2 tournament wins on my profile.

    By the way, I still think it's strange, '3 points for a win, 1 for a draw'.

    Congrats Aiko - I have feeling that must leave me as the player with most tournie moves without success.

    How did that player even get into this tournament.

    Is that possible? I thought that's why there was the "tournament entry rating" that would only go 100 points below your highest.

    Or is it the highest in the past 100 days?

    It took me over seventy (70) tries to finally win one of those darn tournaments, though...
