Plenty of times I've seen peoples game mysteriously collapse, almost like I was playing two different people. I can only assume that my opponent at some in these cases started making moves on his own and did not understand the why's of the position they were in..
Yes, I've seen it too - and I've been on the other side of the board too.
There are some people that just can't play endgames, there are some people that relax too much once they get a maybe winning position, they are some people that stop paying attention once they seem to be sure of the draw, etc. This does not indicate cheating at all.
Talk about a waste of breath (or keystrokes)...
The no-cheat way...sounds like a karate move in the first Karate Kid movie.
oh no absolutely I dig it, totally organic and occasionally even epic failure's unrelated to cheating! ;) I'm guilty of it myself at times.. I'm talking about this one kid, tercarte.. we played a few times and he was later acct. closed for cheating. and some others just by their attitude and sometimes you get series of moves that are like super strong and totally unexpect and relentless, and then its as if their 5 year old got online... Like I said I think cheating is for the most part rare here.
What do you think of these stats.. this guys a monster Online but then 1299 blitz with average opp 1146. No accusation at all just never seen stats like this before
Yeah, I can remember that happening a couple of times to me (on my old account).
