Cheaters on any level i guess ... kinda sad tho, achieving such a high rating (I can only dream of a rating like that) and still cheat with a smartphone on the toilet.

Cheating by going to the restroom just keeps on happening. Too many players set on the toilet and use there phones to bring up a chess engine. I guess what is needed is a guy by the restroom door to do a pat down before anyone enters and of course to check the restroom in advance to make sure no phones or other cheating devices are hidden in there. Yes I think it's come to that.
