    Couldn't find a game I was following, did player search and nothing...curious..
    EDIT: Seems the asp has been brought to bear, someone said there was a poison chalice up there in 'loftyland' rates list.

    It's all a cunning stunt by Admin. They are clearing out the leader board in preparation for a play-off for the Undefeated Championship of RHP

    Yup, either poison in the winner's champagne or the lack of oxygen at such heights.

    He's gone to that great engine room in the sky.

    It's fair to say he was a totally blatant engine user.

    I'm a little shocked about this one tbh, i was playing him and discussing his new appointment as an inter school chess coach in his region. He apparently was having discussions with Mathew Turnur (GM) along with some other notables from the ECF to start an inter-school chess program. Annoyingly i was actually up material (after a mix up of move order in the opening). Game 7752100 ...Do i get the win in this case? (Please say yes, please say yes!!) πŸ˜›

    Yes, you get the win by move timeout.

    Finding suspected engine users has to do with looking at large samples of non-database moves then comparing the correlation with a strong engine to games played by the very best unaided human players.
    If you find someone online who plays far more like an engine in many games over time vs solid opposition than Fischer, Kasparov, Estrin, Berliner & many others, then you have to ask what reasonable cause there is for this.
