    This is correspondence, that's why you should join several tournaments or find somehting else to do. Like, I advanced in the 19th chess.com tournament first round, there are only around 10 games to go.

    When player moves much better moves as he rated expect and every moves he makes is perfect, then I thought player is cheating. Then I tell to my opponent and say he is a cheater.

    Then I will send the game to Admin to analysis, but as I say earlier it's hard to recoknice, if player was played couple of moves himself.

    That kind of people's mental level is about worm's level. They are just mollusc.

    If anybody suspect cheating he can send the game to Admin and they analyses it.

    How can you personally tell if someone cheated?

    I've played a bunch of games where I feel like I am inching my way closer to a win, only to have my opponent make a move I did not expect, loosing me a lot of material.

    I thought this was just because I blundered and missed the move.

    ndhananj@ Yes I think so, but it's not hard to show true. A player can move couple of moves by computer and then him-/herself. In tough game it's still enough to win, but it's hard to find out when admin analyzes game. There are cheaters who don't cheat in every game, but in tough groups only one is enough to turn players placements.

    If i have the same points and the same tie break points as someone else,and we are on 1 spot do we both advance?

    Abhishek2

    I probably won't advance (Group 63). The person above me is going strong and is one point ahead.
