A 7-game, 7 countries tournament, that started on 1 August 2010. No resolution.

PCC Game 24 - spurious ending?

Postby Stander » 26 May 2011, 13:13

I've reaised this elsewhere and maybe it is already being looked at, but I really don't recall seeing a draw proposal for this game, much less even voting to accept it.

Any clues anybody?
I will be running the London Marathon on 22nd April 2012 to raise funds to help disabled children and in memory of my darling wife who sadly passed away in January 2012.

No - the draw proposal was old; it was put up in F06 and was about to expire.

It's the website. It's programmed to NOT let me win. I know it. :cry:

I checked this, and all seems fine. The draw offer was duly accepted and executed before it expired

Excessive running can cause repetitive jarring of the brain against the brain-stem. ;)

I was superised you accepted the draw His Flyness. I thought we were going great and headed for a two way. I accepted the draw because you did, and didn't want to get in a three against one situation.
Yes, who was playing Austria? TheCraw got screwed on that one.

I apologize for the brevity, but I took the draw because for RL reasons I needed to finish the game (there's a post on this in the players forum).
