InfinityChess now also has a forum.

Can someone confirm for me...InfinityChess looks (from the images) like nothing more than a hacked version of PlayChess.
I'm talking about the event where a new player joins after, say, 4 rounds, and because another abandoned the event, this player replaces them, and they get whatever points the abandoning player had, just to make them play in the current round.
Nah, it turned out to be a BOOK battle, as I was managing to do well with my 4CPU from 2010 against people with 30 more times the nodes per second than me, thanks to a strong private book I was given, that bridged the difference in hardware.
This make sense, like in chess, if your opponent doesn't appear you get a win. You also get a win on byes. You also get a win if you opponent forgot to set up their book and their engine couldn't play well without it, etc.
