    I don't know about that. I've heard rumors that if you play using Cheesebase you can get pretty gouda. Ouch, I know. I know, but somebody had to say it! Hey, I'm here all week folks, tip your waitress and try the veal.

    how would copying moves from the database blindly in the heat of the game improve your play???

    you should get spanked for even thinking about cheating. and they would've been better off banning you permanently on the first time, as it's obvious you didn't learn a single thing getting caught the first time.

    yeah i know, i got the idea that using an engine was common practice on red hot pawn. i dont use databases that often and when i do its only for the opening.

    what difference does it make if someone is using an engine on playchess or redhotpawn?

    opening books are not allowed on playchess but they are allowed here. (Totally different types of chess - correspodence / real time have totally different rules.)

    As far as I know engines are not allowed on RHP neither on playchess.

    You want advice on whether if you cheat, you're likely to be caught?

    You have been caught cheating on playchess before? What is your rating/nick on Playchess? My advice to you would be to learn chess properly. If you "stole" and got from say 1200 to 1500, what would you do when you actually met 1400s-1600s OTB?

    You are either silly or very brave coming on here admitting you
    have been banned for cheating.

    What difference does it make?

    How would you feel if one of the players you coach at tennis kept
    getting beat by a junkie.

    However I suppose you could have sneaked on here under a new
    name. So I take the refromed bit as OK. 2nd chance and all that.

    Please post one of the games that got you caught - a game where
    you did use a computer.

    I've seen loads of games with people suggesting or hinting there
    may be a box invovled.

    Never seen the real McCoy. Would like to know if you boxed every
    move or just a few selected ones.

    actually ive never cheated on playchess.com. but like 3 years ago i had a membership on icc. and i used chessmaster to play against a few players but i got caught right away.

    right now i just want to improve my openings not cheat the whole match, thats just boring and pointless.

    Quoting your first post in this thread: "ive been caught cheating before on playchess

    but like 3 years ago i had a membership on icc. and i used chessmaster to play against a few players but i got caught right away.

    So you want to say that you have cheated in ICC not in Playchess? What`s the difference where exactly you have cheated?
