    At the bottom of screen I found the following under Help and Support

    No chess programs or engines (e.g. Chessmaster, Fritz, Houdini, Stockfish, Chessbase with any active UCI engine, etc.) can be used to analyse positions in ongoing games.  

    Please do not discuss your suspicions in the forums!

    Thank you for your advice John. I didn't mention his name and I waited until I made sure about my facts. I studied not only his record of online games but his live chess records as well. I am competing in chess championships for the past 50 years, I am a good loser Smile and it is nothing personal. Yet I hate dishonesty/cheating at costs of others.

    Just report him to Chess.com. They will duly castrate him if you are correct. Next time do not mention it in comments, just refer the suspect to the neccessary authorities for liquidation. If you are incorrect, which is possible, you will know because he will continue his membership.

    After some research I have good reason to believe that a person with a low rating and a bad track record is cheating in the second round of our group. I am most certainly not worried about myself but the rest of the group and the ethics of the game. I should have warned him personally when I suspected cheating but I wasn't sure at that time. What is the correct thing to do?

    The official chess.com tournaments have defined rules that are clearly stated. Just do not join next time if you do not like them. Personally I enjoy them
