If your password is in any way "guessable" then it's possible.

The strongest passwords are just random strings of letters and numbers, which can never be guessed. If your password is a dictionary word, or something associated with you, then it becomes possible to guess it.

Even a "strong" password could be brute-forced by a computer program in theory, but I can't imagine anyone doing this just to make a move on Chess.com

If you can't handle civilized irony, that's your tough luck.

Watch out for the person who makes blunders for me. His name is DefinitelyNotGM

LoL!!

I don't see why it couldn't be possible. All of this is nothing but digital information ... bits and bytes in cyberspace on some server somewhere. Change a value, a voila.

Possible. Improbable. Unlikely.

Highly.
