No, it means you've lost one match. You have to play everyone, twice. When you win, you get 3 points. After everyone has played everyone, twice, then the scores are tallied. original.gif

I was wondering that myself (how many games are to be played). I thought it stopped at 6 all up because it was said you could have 6 games going.

I personally used to be quite good at chess as a kid, but uh, my chess playing stopped right there so besides a few games here and there I really haven't played in years.

Is anyone else finding RHP slower than before? Not the whole site but the chess board, especially in the "Analyse Board" screen it takes ages to load each position.

Just wanted to know if this was a site problem or a problem with my computer, and if the latter whether anyone has any suggestions?

I think it's the site, it can be quite slow sometimes.

It's busy right now if you check the board you are playing...

Heck... last move was like watching paint dry it took so long to put in. laugh.gif

Oh well, at least it's not just me. Although I was kind of hoping it was my computer then at least I could do something about it  hmm.gif

It doesn't do that very often actually, right now for example the site is really quick. I rarely have any speed issues with it, although it can happen sometimes.

If it does it all the time for you then it could be a problem at your end.

Definately something odd going on over at RHP, I think I have 7 games because Ashley challenged me exactly as I set up a new game, so both got entered at the same time.

That's my theory anyway  thumbsup.gif

Edit: I've now got 8 games! Woo hoo so much for the subscription

I'm having a job getting onto the site now, it won't load a lot of the time. They must be having server problems.
