    After my skull proportion thread it occurred to me to follow up what happened to the opponents who've beaten me while I've been on OTB.

    So far I've lost 4 games out of 40 completed. 2 of the people who beat me have subsequently been banned.

    50% of losses to players who went on to be banned. How does that proportion compare to RHPers in general?

    I have lost to quite a few banned players too. But most of my losses are for my own blunders rather then me trying really hard and still getting convincingly beaten.

    That seems quite a high percentage.

    I have played about 30 games against players who have subsequently been banned (plus many more against players I expect one day will be banned) winning or drawing a few but generally being comprehensively destroyed.

    I think I only have 2 against Opaline User 295081
    Comprehensive losses well over a year ago in 17 & 19 moves. That is about what I'd guess as an intermediate against an engine on full whack.
