    His/Her rating is in the 1300’s now. Very odd. Anyone try and message him? 🤔

    Maybe I have played computer games for too many decades, but when I see a title on a forum post that says "computer cheats", part of me expects to get a code that I can type into Fritz and get an extra queen or something.

    He resigned in 10 games with me. My rating raised from 1990 to 2120.......
    I cannot message him, because he has blocked me.
    Maybe some 5 years ago, I dared to ask him how many engines he used in total, as I could see in an online database 5 different engines.

    @Gambiteer - John HADLEY, I asked him by message, but he did not reply.
    also odd state for Birr who seems to play under various States, Grading levels. He is a very strong player though.
    Hope someone can cast some light on two odd circumstances

    Such devious behavior does betray the intended spirit of a site like this one.
    Cheaters likely have underlying issues of insecurity.

    I will not allow their weaknesses to have an effect upon me. I just refuse to play them again.

    Wish them well and move along.
    Enjoy chess!

    I'll go further, an undesirable goes from 1200 - 1400 & sky rockets into a 2000 parameter in a matter of weeks, what's that? Divine intervention, by the way I sacked everything apart from a laptop & net connection to be the greatest online chess player?

    I had a similar situation with a player who was higher rated than me- I used the message part of the game to offer a draw to the exact engine he was using. He resigned via timeout, along with another player I was playing from the same country, and my rating jumped way up.

    As I pointed out in the internal Misfits Clan forum, chess gravity eventually reasserts itself, and my rating returns to its more normal range.

    I am blocked also after I asked him which engine he used. More than a bit suspicious. I suspect someone had figured out just which engine or sets of engines he used and was about to go to admin with it.
