I'm not a good player but I clear 95% regularly and 98% now and then. Just happens when you're feeling sharp and your opponent plays badly so that best moves are obvious.

Hi, I recently played a game where my opponent had 9.5% accuracy!

Steven-ODonoghue

In my most recent game my opponent had 8.1

Sollieman83

oh

Sollieman83

how is it possible to get accuracy that low? you would have to blunder every move or smth

Steven-ODonoghue

he hung a piece almost every move and he was in the mid 1500s and this was a 30 minute game

Sollieman83

wow

Hi guys,

High accurancy level is not a reason for the bann. It depends from your opponent level and number of moves. If you are 1100 and won someone with a rating 2700 in 40 first line moves, especially with 3-4 sec intervals between all moves it could be a reason for distrust. If you show it during several games, you could be banned, I guess.

My respect to all who archieved more than 95 of accurancy in fair play! 

If you are interested here is my game with accurancy 97.8 https://www.chess.com/blog/AGM_VladimirKim/one-of-my-games-accurancy-97-8

The "accuracy" metric on Chess.com is pretty meaningless. I routinely hit over 97% accuracy. If your opponent makes a blunder you'll probably be playing accurate moves. In my most recent game I missed a free piece and still finished with 97.8 accuracy. Don't worry, you won't get banned

Accuracy doesn't really correlate to engine use or anything of that sort. I've had games with over 99% accuracy, as well as 60%. It depends all on the type of game you are playing.
