    Well well well, no doubts here after such a blatent streak of cheating in the 2009 championships - you guys with your few bad games here and there have nothing to worry about, it is when facing an opposition averaging over 2200 and only losing a single game when the evidence becomes pretty overwhelming.

    How long did this take? Until after all the 2009 championship games were complete? Sheesh. At least it's happened - for this case.

    At some point, technology will exist to automatically monitor all games. Matchups well beyond the best human rate will lead to quick bans: 1-2 months at most. At that point, side contests like Leagues, Ladders - and Site Championships - become meaningful again.

    Here's hoping that it's this site that adopts this technology.

    hi Dawghaus, i always wondered when playing blitz on ICC that the little messages would sometimes appear that such and such has been caught cheating and their rating shall be set back, therefore does this technology exist for correspondence play as well?

    In the most important tournament of the year, I would have thought it would make sense to do a quick check on the winners of the penultimate round at least.

    If they had done so in jockymckilt's group, alarm bells might have gone off a little sooner:
    http://www.redhotpawn.com/tournament/view.php?tid=5854&rndid=2&groupid=6

    jockymckilt won every single one of his games, including eight against 2100+ opposition. Obviously that's possible, but it would have been nice if a Fritz match-up check had been done at that point so a more deserving player could have made it to the last round.

    Someone (I think David Tebb) told me that this just checks whether you are flipping between difference programs whilst it's your move. I don't think it checks to see if you're running an engine and I'm almost certain it doesn't check for high engine match-up on the fly!
