bbanane

i just looked at the 'all ratings' listings. (yes i'm quite happy with my current rating, thank you).

i noticed i'm just under "bbanane", who has a rating of 2485. this is clearly an alias of the old days : he/she has a record of 0/29/3. just out of interest i looked up these 32 games. and : they were all resigned in the first move. all against a "lesieges". must have been a pretty daunting player. :wink: i wonder why "lesieges" accepted 3 draws, when he could have gotten 3 more wins, as "bbanane" seems to be just another handle of his.

i know : it's old news. just wanted to react on it. sorry if i wasted your time here. let's get on with the game then !

I've lowered the rating of bbanane. But it's not really fair to say this was lesieges cheating, as a lot of players start a bunch of games, then resign because they didn't really want to play.

thanks,Greg, but that was not needed : i suppose you've got other things to do but to filter out those unreal rated handles.

as for the so called cheating : you're right : a lot of people enter matches and never play. most of them however time out. occasionally one might have the courtesy to resign. but i find it hard to believe this 'bbanane' started 32 games (in different matches) ALL against lesieges. just a bit too convenient as far as i'm concerned. but, as said earlier : this is all in the past. i certainly keep enjoying this site.

BTW : has anyone heard what is going on with Jeff Jones ? he has not logged in for some time now, and he's timing out in a lot of games, which is not a habit of his.

cheers,

Jeff lives in Florida. Perhaps he is occupied with putting his affiars in order before Hurricane Wilma hits. I don't know for sure, though...that is just a guess.
