    i noticed chessfordollars.com is bringing up 4-player chess.  when they add money to it you're probably going to have the only chess game on the planet that is cheat-proof.  I think that's because there are no chess engines that play 4-player and there are no published games.  everyone will be playing with only their brains.  what a thought!

    Yeah, because the absence of bughouse chess commercial softwares is an absolute no-cheating guarantee.

    heh people make big money at the chess booths at fairs and other events; the ren-fest near us usually has one and that runs all summer long, guy probably makes over a grand a day.  Think he was a low 2k (right at 2k even?) rated player and charged $10 or something for a game, paid 20 if he lost, and maybe kids were able to have one game free?  Anyway the seats (about 10 boards, from memory) were usually at least 1/2 full and over a 10 hour or so day..  it looked profitable.   Takes some skill; the guy was good enough to replay the game with you for a quick analysis / commentary if you wanted.

    1. Legal issues.
    2. Some people like playing in an environment that is not made up of 80% engines, 19% centaurs (and 1% marks).

    INdeed. A very unrealistic idea.

    It would be impossible to prevent from someone sneaking in computer moves on critical positions.

    Problem with chess online specially for money is that it is terribly easy to cheat. Simply get the latest version of chessmaster or that microsoft chess game and install it on your pc. than start a game for money with a real player and a game with the ai on your pc. what ever move the real player will make against you, you will make against the A.I. and what ever move the A.I. will make against you, you will make against the real player. This is why chess online for money will never be real. (other than some scaming sites...)

    So you play for money and have a IM - GM helping you with the moves? He is getting a 60% cut..

    Obviously cheating would be rampant, even without engines.

    Cheat-proof? Well, let's look at it this way: say that you and two buddies play against a fourth, unsuspecting, player…
