Computer Assistance in Online Chess at

  • 4 years ago · #1


    Hi Folks!

    I actually play matches with two guys who have a rating at live chess far below 1000. They play really cruel chess. But at Online Chess the are real chess wizards, making nearly no mistakes. On guy has an online rating of 1800, the other 1948!!!

    That really p..... me off, becaue i know, i have no chance versus them.

    i dont wanna play a whole match against a computer

    I dont know, why these "players" or better program users are so eager to let a machine win chess games for them?

    Can anybody tell me, if computer assistance is allowed at

    Thanks alot for your feedback!

    Best Regards

    Submit a ticket if you believe you have been cheated (be reasonable though).

    It's not allowed. If you look through the rules it's in there, but I must say it's not said explicitly on sign up, which would be better. You can use theory but you can't actually check your moves with an engine. An engine user with a rating of 1950 is of course ridiculous. Maybe this person is using a 20 year old machine from a flea market? The ratings here are quite generous. It should be no problem at all to get to 2300-2400 rating or up if you're cheating.
