  • Adam Dzedzej at 2006-11-14

    Since you have won einstein.mc.2006.mar.1.49

    in the first round. Now all games in the first round ended and the second round started

    For me it is also a surprise that I am part of a

    tournament einstein.mc.2006.mar.2.2

    Currently I do not have time to play such a tournament.

    Which options do I have to leave that tournament without

    provocing trouble? How can I make sure that such things

    will not happen again in a few days with another tournament?

    Thanks for all help in advance.

    Sincerely, Ingo.

    Q: Which options do I have to leave that tournament without

    provocing trouble?

    A: If you really do not have time, you can resign all the games of this tournament. If you resign without making any moves in a game, your rating does not change (just like an unrated-friendly game)

    Q: How can I make sure that such things

    will not happen again in a few days with another tournament?

    A: If you have won one (or more) first rounds of a monthly cup, and as I see you have won four first rounds of the 2006.april monthly cup, e.g. einstein.mc.2006.apr.1.17, you will be put in a new tournament, as soon as the second round starts. And you can do nothing about it. (Unless off course resigning the games after they start).

    Q: Can I see when a new round of a monthly cup will start?

    A: You have to check the Monthly Cup page for a game. If you are interested in Einstein, you can check Einstein Monthly Cups page. When all tournaments of a first round end, the second round will begin.

    Manys thanks to ypercube for the patient explanations.

    I did not know that Little Golem is such a “big machinery”.

    Sorry to my group partners, but I will not play the games,

    due to the lack of time.

    Sincerely, ingo.
