Are you guys just winning by default? Is this chess club just a big scam for free Platinum Memberships or whatever it is I give you?

Generally no, though we typically have to wait 2 days for opponents to make their move. In this game I hope so, it's the deciding game which we're winning and Jaymin 's opponent has activated a feature which allows him not to move for a month and a half.

I'm doing it wrong if the aim is to get Platinum membership, but no - we haven't had prizes since last June ;)

My opponent made a move! And then went on vacation again.

I assume no response from chess.com on the vacation abuse report? I'm happy to put in my own request in if not.

Can't believe they haven't done the noble thing and resigned already.

So he has timed out one of his games. 35 hours to go on the other.

In the game he accused me of cheating it says I made 5 mistakes and 1 blunder and he had a missed win...

Pathetic effort on his behalf. Total time waster, at least my guy timed out right at the start.

But whats wrong with just resigning when you are beaten, it doesn't hurt... I should know.

Apologies for my shit performance. Stupidly signed up to the Chess.com "daily championship" where you play 22 simultaneous games, and forgot that 3 months ago I signed up to a thematic tournament that started about same time. So had 30 games on the go and I don't think my brain handled it well :sob:
