What do you think ?
GM OTB or Correspondence? I ask because many associations DON'T check for chess engine use, or even care.
Also, what is their win percentage? If they are GM but lose 5 or 6 percent of the time but NEVER lose on a chess site chances are they are using something to their advantage.
Also also, no human thinks like a computer. Regardless if they are GM, there is no way they should be evaluating millions of positions and constantly matching an engine.
Anyone can cheat. No change required.
