    I slightly misunderstood the tournament format and now find that I have too many games to play. More than I realistically have time for. Is there any way to gracefully withdraw? All my games are still on move 1 or 2.
    thanks

    as they are on move 1 or 2 you can just resign the lot and this shouldn't affect your rating

    Are you sure this is a rule? Where do you find this information?

    Go to site map, help, ratings. Both players must have made two moves for ratings to kick in.
