    Well that was no major surprise, it had to be an engine really for him to have won so many games so convincingly.

    Maybe gatecrasher will pick himself up a third championship in as many years once all the bannings are taken care of.

    He's still got two players above him - User 303701 and User 40539.

    Four people eventually got banned from the 2008 Championship: Tournament 3116.

    It could easily have been six.

    They still need to zero out all results against any cheater scratched off the tournament crosstable. Can't believe that code was put in place to scratch out the name of the cheat, and zero their score, without fixing the scores of other players as well.

    It is a bad one to lose alright . But when you look at the info.

    He started it near midnight on Christmas Day and it ended 40 minutes later.

    I cannot tell you were I was last week, but I can tell you where I was
    on Christmas Day 2006. In my house as drunk as a skunk.

    Put that one down to Seasonal Greetings.
