I have witnessed a lot of sandbagging, but no cheating in OTB.
Sandbagging is a form of cheating.
Good catch. I meant computer assisted cheating.
is it hard to cheat in chess tournaments?
Stop bumping dead threads unless you have something significant to add...
"By pushing all the right buttons on a good chess engine, any Kardashian sister could conceivably checkmate Fischer."
Is this guy kidding? Fischer would tear Houdini, Stockfish and Rybka to pieces in a blindfold simul. :-)
YOU WISH. FISHER STUNK. HE JUST USED MIND TRICKS AND WAS INDIMIDATED. COMPUERS DON'T GET TRICKED BY FISHERS STRATEGIES.
I tried to cheat once, but i brought a toaster to a tournament, instead of a chess engine.
Why even alow electronics at the tournaments?
It's way easier for everyone. At most tournaments I attend, the TDs prefer you notate electronically since it's so much easier for them. For the player, it takes less than 2 seconds to notate a move and breaks your concentration way less than writing it down. I'm happy either way, but I'd be fibbing if I said it wasn't a lot easier electronically and I didn't prefer it.
You're confusing things. You are talking about Kasparov, who got toasted by Deep Blue. Fischer had a flawless over-the-board attitude.
can you tell how me how to cheat?
Knock the board over and put pieces on better squares.
if you want to learn how to cheat then you need to read this book:
it was written by an english gm:
Electronic notation is not easier for a TD (I've TD'd National Scholastic tournaments for the USCF) and don't even understand how that could be the case. There's nothing wrong with them, but it's a hassle to always be addressing questions about the legality of the devices to less knowledgeable players.
It is for some TDs at least. Perhaps the difference is due to his never once needing to address the legality of the devices to anyone in my experience. At the end of the day, he simply has pgns sitting in his email inbox instead of barely legible or illegible scoresheets riddled with errors.
Deep Blue only won by one game and the match result was a genuine upset like Euwe defeating Alekhine for the title.
I don't know how sophisticated it would have to be but the obvious option at a serious tournament would be to have the electronic devices to enter the moves supplied at the table and not let the users bring their own.
I am not a great player but a fair club player and have played tournament chess. I have subsequently analysed my own games. The usual pattern is that I will match the engine's best move much of the time but on occasion will play a move that is completely off the line - either missing a chance to win or giving my opponent a chance or losing an advantage I have gained.
My opponent will most likely to the same.
My last tournament game was 4 years ago and I won comfortably and felt I had played quite well. The analysis showed that, whilst I was never behind in the game and was in a winning position from a relatively early point (due to my opponent's errors) there were times in the game when I missed "clear" wins.
Perhaps, but that was then, this is now. I'm not saying that Fischer and Kasparov weren't some of the greatest players ever. But there is no way Fischer or anyone else could beat even one of the computers jenium mentioned at their hardest level.
