    28 - 0 is unusual unless of course you playing people well below your rating, if that is the case we call them give me games. Try playing people who are in your rating range and see how you fair out. I believe right now you are in 1600's so get someone in the 1600's to play you, until you find out what rating level you are actually at. If you get to the 1700's then play someone in that rating range, etc.,etc.,.

    Forget his name, but same MO. Appears all friendly-like, saying he is new to the site and asking for games. He then wins 50 games straight and becomes progressively unpleasant in the forums, before getting a ban.

    IF it is the same person but does seem to have same MO as before, I do remember that.

    Try this guy "Ghost of a Duke", see if he will give you a game, as he is more in your rating range than I am.

    I don’t think he is cheating.
    He’s playing people 1600 and below.
    He could be a solid 1800 or better player and he has to get his rating up before strong players accept his challenges eh?

    Once that happens his rating/wins and losses will balance out.

    I am 1600 average but I had to play some 1100’s and 1200’s just to get some games going and get my rating up to a point where stronger players will accept games against me eh?

    What would happen if a real master joined the site?
    He would win every game until he hit 2200 or more and then start to lose so would we accuse him of cheating also?

    I don’t have any way to check other peoples games nor would I waste my time doing so but I am going to give him the benefit of the doubt eh?

    The rating of his/her average opponent is 1357 a long way from 1600, no?

    Why doesn't he/she play someone in the 1600 - 1700 range?

    He/she can play an unrated game with anyone. The game doesn't have to be rated?

    I agree.
    His no loss record is from beating up on lower rated players and almost all of us would have the same record if we did that eh?

    I have challenged many players above 1800 and only a few have accepted the challenges eh?
    The ones who did are crushing me!

    Online chess takes too long to get a balanced rating eh?
    Personally I think the provisional 1200 should be removed and when you start playing it should just say unrated until the 20 games are complete.
