    Wow... only a few thousand more and me and Akizy will be goin head to head . That's pathetic that people can bring themselves to cheat on a chess site that has no real reward for winning. So stupid. Good job for catching these guys, idiots.

    Edit - I mean the cheaters are the idiots

    One thing I find really impressive is that top guys like Akizy and them are actually able to "routinely" beat these engine users. That's pretty incredible. Lets say fritz plays at it's claimed 2890 (or something like that) elo. I suppose that means these top players are actually playing at that level or better without engine help, that's impressive.

    I played DixieGuy when he was rated 1600 (and rising) and subpected him then. The others I have not played.

    There are 2 other players above 2000 who I played on their way up but who shall remain nameless who I also suspect.

    Deep Fritz runs on an intel core 2 duo processor (99% sure)... that computer is available for purchase by anyone. I would assume if you owned that computer you're playing at a 2890 level.

    and the cheats will most likely let the engine run only for a short while on any single move, which will produce quite a lot of small mistakes. especially in positional games.

    I am on such a computer at the moment, so really, if I had that program I could use it and win all my games (although I assume its quite expensive)... but where is the fun in that? It seems to me that people who cheat have no personal pride.

    That is a testment to the human mind!

    I got mauled in two games by tension84 last month. The games were short and not so sweet (for me). As soon as the latest cheats get removed I should get to page three of the player tables. Not the first time I've been on Page 3, but I'm sure you don't want to hear about that.

    Its hard to remember, but when Tension first started on this site he was barely 1700, i played him in a duel after he had been here for a month or two, and he was 1600, and he played horrible against me, and i beat him in both games...and then about a month later or so, his rating shot up over 2000+...must have been easy to spot??

    You’re right. IO recently finished a game against a Fritz user. How do I know? A few months ago he was 1850 (as he had been for the last couple years) and he lost. Our second game 4 months ago he was 2100+ and he won. I put that game through Fritz giving it about 90 seconds to think and guess what? The move he made was the one Fritz recommended every time. I played him again recently (now he’s rated 2200+) and managed to draw. I played the French Rubinstein Var. using a line not in Fritz’ opening book, traded off a lot of pieces and we were left with a drawn B & P ending. Playing at the 2800 level?! Not on his computer at only about 90 seconds a move. So these guys can be beaten. Letting an engine cogitate all night might be a different story though, but the heavyweights at the top of the rating list can deal with them.

    Blackbuck..... I really did not suspect him. I have had with him result +4 -2 =2 and when I did check our finished games with engine he`s moves did not seem "inhuman".

    Against tension84 i had finished 2 games +1 - 1

    In game which I lost i missed tactic and he got decisive attack in game which I won he missed simple tactic and lost pawn in opening which I did exploit in victory. Thats the reason why I did not suspect tension84 too.

    I've always wondered about a couple people on the leaderboard there that have unusual names, haven't written a profile, and seem to play very mechanical games.. there are a couple (who will remain nameless) who I've been watching for a while now.
