                      Re: Toronto Dragons

                      Tense match last night against one of the strongest teams in the League, the Miami Champions. One of our players got disconnected in two separate games, but we fought on bravely winning 3 games in the 4th round. All we needed was one more win to clinch the match.

                            I hear from one of the players that there might be an announcement on Monday...

                            Anyone care to/able to elaborate?

                              On Thursday, the League notified us that one of the Miami players had violated Chess.com's Fair Play Agreement, and that the match result had been overturned in our favour. On Saturday, chess.com informed us that Miami had filed an appeal with them, and they had reverted the win to Miami. This Wednesday, Miami headed by Hikaru Nakamura will be playing against the Buenos Aires Krakens, while we have been knocked out.

                                Can you send me some contact info for chess.com, I'd like to hear their version of it.

                                In particular, which screw up do they admit to:
                                1. a defective anti-cheating system that produced a false positive
                                2. a defective appeals policy that protects the highest-profile players or teams
                                3. something else
