    I was wondering how site administrators identify cheaters? I mean, how would they identify someone who has several accounts? Or someone who is using an engine?

    They're not going to reveal their methods are they?
    All you need to know is that suspects' games can and are analysed.
    As for multi-accounts, sometimes the culprits are spotted in the forums.

    They often make it obvious by what they say.

    Chess Engines have a very distinctively different style of play compared to human players and it's easy to spot if you know what to look for and have the correct analysis tools.

    As for multiple accounts, simply choosing a different Username and e-mail address won't help. Using the site (and the internet in general) means you're giving away detailed information about your internet connection. Again, if you know what to look for it's easy to spot multiple accounts.

    Bottom line: Don't cheat, you WILL be caught.

    When a player starts 2 threads asking for assistance in his ongoing games, it's fairly clear cut that he is trying to cheat by getting outside assistance.

    The easiest method of cheating is to use: http://www.playtheimmortalgame.com/gamesexplorer/

    This is a foolproof method of improving your play and demolishing opponents too stupid or lazy to use outside help. This is a secret though, so keep it on the down low.

    So, during my pleasant experiment to reap the rewards of betting sites' introductory offers, they all knew all along that there were 4 of me? And they still paid up. Interesting.

    Send feedback or send a PM one of the game moderators (Site Map - Volunteeers). Include as much information as possible.

    They ask.

    Are you a cheater?

    If the user answers yes, he's a cheat and is banned.
    If they answer no, he's lying and is banned.πŸ˜›
