    What do you think? They look pretty guilty to me but who can say for sure.

    EDIT: I can understand how Varshavsky might of just been having a good day. I know being accused of cheating would screw up my concentration in a big tournament. It seems pretty obvious to me the other guy was cheating though.

    "Cheating at chess may seem like a twisted exercise in ego gratification"

    Quite.

    I love the part where the guy lost his last 2 games quickly when it seems that he had to abandon his toys.

    I know what I'm gonna do in my next OTB tournament. Go to Radio Shack, get a "audionic" walkie-talkie (the ear piece acts as a microphone by picking up vibrations through the ear canal) then have a friend tell me what move to make while I talk through the game. Brilliant.

    about this ghost tales,
    Since I have been on PHP, I have found two moves while sleeping, I happens that I check the games before sleeping, then I decide that I will move tomorrow because I am too tired, then at 6 o'clock(exactly) I wake up remebering this dream where I was analysing the board and saw the move, I imediatly go to the pc, check it, and it is very good:

    Game 2199496 move 15, opponent resigned

    [gid]id 2286301[/gid] move 22, opponent resigned 3 moves away(of course he wasn't playing very good)

    but the point is that it is normal that this happens, I could also say that I saw a ghost or something.

    I say that it is normal because I used to repair tv's, and it was like 5 times that I could find a problem while sleeping, after spending the hole day working on it. and a friend of mine told me it hapened to him two times.

    I think that the brain transmit the data to the subconcient, and then he works on it.
