    Does the site have any rules on the length of time it takes to play a tourney? I have two games going with "heng" , SplitVII, Rnd 1, going on since June, 2007. Mr. Heng, it seems has over 800 games going! Why is he allowed to play this many games, and totally keep this tournament at a snail's pace? 😠

    He's playing within the rules, no matter how annoying it may be to you.

    If he plays too slow, he'll be timed out.

    June 2007? That's a itty-bitty baby tournament; in its early infancy.

    I'm still in a tournament that commenced in July 2004, and that is by no means the longest running on the site.

    If heng doesn't stick to the time controls, you can time him out. If he does, there is really nothing you can do, but wait.... or enter another tournament.

    Hey Gatecrasher, you have got to be kidding, a tourney since 2004. That would distress me---heck, I don't even buy green bananas. LOL! 🙄

    Humph3, guess I got the wrong tourney---but I am in two games with heng in another tournament. Excussssssssee MEEEEE! He may be one heck a great chess man, but he missed out on common horse sense. 😀

    I don't know what Sicilian Smaug is trying to say here, but the irony is that I am waiting on Heng to finish some games in a split before I meet Smaug in the final (and no doubt get beaten).

    But, as Heng's behaviour is within the rules, I won't complain.

    Here is the oldest in progress tournie Tournament 27 which started way back in May 2003 😲

    Heng cut his gameload in half!! He had over 1600 in progress at one time.

    Also the time controls of the tournaments dictate the speed of play.

    Did you know that some groups in Tournament 2602 are finished, so in effect you are holding up later rounds by playing so slow 😛

    Yes, Mr. Heng is going to lose most of his games by time out, I am playing him in a clan game...and he is losing both games to time out. I wrote him about it...and he did not have time to reply, but he got the message...he is truly a chess recluse...absorbed in nothing else.

    I got a win against mr Heng, I timed him out. (Sorry, Mr heng if you read this, but you have timed others out as well) That's the risc by having hundreds and hundreds of games going. An influenza and the time outs are rolling in.

    But, still, I admire mr Heng being able to control so many games at one time! He has certainly the hang of it!
