    Send Feedback @ the bottom of your screen. I should mention though that unless your opponent is rated well over 2000, he or she probably is not cheating. Unusually strong play is often a sign of an unusually strong player and most certainly not an engine.

    Edit - I should also add that in the 6 games you have in progress now, it would appear to me that none of them are cheating as the highest rating of any of your opponents is in the 1600's and he hasn't played perfect chess by any means.

    Why worry about them. Until your rating gets up to about 1800 they are likely to have little practical impact on you.

    At your grade the only players likely to be cheating are those that have never lost. Of course they could just be genuine strong players on their way up.

    In order to get to 2000+ a cheater has to climb over lots of lower rated players so we all have to be on guard for the rats.

    I think you are right.How does a 2000+ player get there?He has to play with low rating players first...

    As I said in my post at that level he is unlikely to be cheating unless he is unbeaten when of course it is a possibility.

    Dragonfire do you accept challenges from lower rated players?

    I sometimes have a feeling that some low rated players occasionally use a computer against someone better so they wont get caught doing it...

    I agree there Tyrannosauruschux I mean Ive had up and down days myself through one day I might be able to beat some 1700 or 1800 near my level by a very close margin then suddenly get shown up by a 1500 or even 1400 Its always been an up and down struggle for me here but I dont feel just because I lose someone is using something against me it just tells me they studied harder know the game better than me or I just simply made bad plays either way gets me by, so no matter what you wont know someones using a computer until your already to far into the game either way just have fun, its a perfect game no need to get made because half the world seems to study and the other half learn NOTHING and cheat there way through the game.

    Rather a sweeping statement. Do you mean 1400 rated players that beat 1800+ rated players or 1800 rated players who beat 2100+ rated players?

    It seems to be more 1400 players, it would be harder to know it if an 1800 player was using a computer as the quality of their play tends to be of a higher standard in the first place. But when a 1400 player plays a game completely free of mistake and wins fairly easily it seems pretty suspect.
    Like this one time I played a guy called bishop of malburg and he didnt make a single mistake and played like a 2200 strength player in two games against me but lost some other games in the same tournament with some horrendous mistakes
