I resigned to Wonderboy because I wouldn't had fun having my butt kicked by him and I resigned to Arrakis because I didn't like him and didn't wanted to play him.
Not that I would have beat them ...[text shortened]... yourself thinking that if I didn't resign you had more chances to progress, pfttt......[/b]
For starters in this case your resignations to the other players doesn´t effect me in the slightest as I´m not actually in your group.
Secondly, if I had been in your group then yes, the chances of me progressing would have been slim, not only because there are two players better than me but they were gifted 6 points each that I´d have had to fight for against you, no hold on one second, my grade is higher than yours at the moment, perhaps you would have resigned to me as well, or is a 14 point difference not high enough to resign?
Anyway, for me to have stood any chance to progress I would have needed to take some points from the top seed and I´d have needed someone else to have done the same.
That´s all beside the point though as my original question just related to the point of entering a tournament to just immediately resign games to higher rated players. It´s just seems a bit pointless, everyone has a different view and they´re entitled to it, good luck in your games.
