But all the players mentioned in the initial post of this thread were banned from the site for some reason. The poster seems to think it was 3b, who knows?!
The post regarding cludi and ironman being genuine players who blunder checked or only cheated in some games also makes me wonder how detection is actually done...
As far as I know, for the most part players banned for cheating must have a certain match up rate with an engines first three choices. (something like 85% or so)
Plenty of people have questioned that it is simply a strong player, but the highest matchups ever maintained by the worlds strongest correspondence chess players is something like 82%.
Players must also have played a certain number of games; One game will never sufice as proof.
I think cludi was very because he seemed to have a tremendous knowledge of chess, and still keeps up a very interesting chess blog.
I'm not sure about Ironman, but since he beat all the other cheats, and a strong player working with an engine will almost always be better than just an engine, he either was very strong, or just had a very strong engine.
What do you mean, they were banned for some other reason? They were all banned for cheating, 3b.
