    Everyone who signs up gets a free copy of Rybka.

    (Russ will gladly take care of that bit).

    Then if your opponent makes a good move.
    Put the position into Rybka and if it chooses as the best move
    the same move your opponent has just played - Wallah!
    He's Cheating.

    Why has nobody thought of this before?

    What if somebody makes that move without the help of Rybka?

    P.S. I apologize if your post was intended as an irony regarding the current situation with cheats here on RHP

    .....without the help of Rybka?

    Nobody will believe him - he will (we all will) have to play the 2nd best move.

    And then...this is the clever bit.
    We will also know what the 2nd best move Rybka chose was.
    So he will (we all will) have to play the 3rd. best move.
    And then....and so on and so on.

    Brilliant! Yeah, I'm sure Russ would do that for us, although I have a sneaking suspicion that the dues would go up to cover the cost of Rybka.

    We could also create a "Cheating Only" forum, sure to be the most popular one!

    All aboard the Paranoia Express, wooooooo........woooooooo!

    Wallah:
    1) a person in charge of, employed at, or concerned with a particular thing (used in combination): a book wallah; a rickshaw wallah.

    2)A black variety of the jaguar

    And as for voila - you'll have the spelling police up in arms about that one....

    Something wrong with it if it's supposed to be a musical instrument. (The police would have loved to stay in bed!)
