    I was wondering what happens in a tournament if your opponent doesn't move at all? The time they have to move doesn't decrease so what happens?

    Eventually everyone else in the tournament who have already finished their games, and are just waiting for you and your opponent to start yours, complains to Russ about the time you are taking.

    Russ, who has had a bad day, decides to kill the game and remove all the points you and your opponent have previously won in the tournament, meaning that neither of you go through.

    If it is a duel between you, then you both get eliminated.

    The only way top prevent this happening is to get in their first with a request to Russ, hoping that he is having a good day.
