Resigned two games in a tournament that has already been decided but has rounds remaining expecting them to be annulled but they were counted and I lost rank even though only 6 moves were made on a 19x19 board. I checked the forums beforehand to see that as long as no more than 19 moves had been made the games should have been annulled.
The games in question:
My decision to resign the games were due to the way the previous round had ended and I realized the tournament would be out of reach for anyone else regardless of the results of the games after the resignation of the second place player in each of their games for the round.
The following game ended eventually after I had passed 6x over the course of the last 30 moves and I decided after seeing that the tournament was decided that I really didn’t want to play the handicapped games as they are quite stressful giving an opponent 9 stones.
Finally, I don’t really care if the games are annulled, but I do want to understand why they weren’t since only 2 moves were played in one game and 6 in the other.
