How to decide?

I have a situation where both players seem to be around on fibs pretty much on a daily basis, but never at the same time. They both profess to have contacted the other. They both have similar experiences, rating and reputation. What should I do, get rid of them both? They have had a week and the time is running out...

Play one of them instead.
If you win, award the win to the other player (who you are not playing)

Can you follow me?  :wacko:

Yeah, I can see how this is going to be a problem with longer tourneys.

Perhaps FibsLeaGammon TDs could share some experience on how they handle such situations?

A couple thoughts on how to resolve it (neither perfect here):
  • Require all email correspondence between two players to be cc'ed to the TD
  • have TourneyBot keep track of who spent more time on FIBS since the start of tourney and give the win to that player
  • use RepBot reputation to give the win to the one with higher one
  • make TB award it a random
  • combination of the above
