Cheaters in Rapid Tournaments

RelaxedMonster

I am facing a lot of cheaters in rapid tournaments. In last 3 consecutive tournaments i have faced a cheater in the end round with 500 rating points lower than me and beating me perfectly (after seeing the analysis). I have lots almost 100 rating points due to that scenario.

In blitz tournament i can hardly find a cheater, but rapid needs more protection. The cheating players should banned immediately in the tournament and the points should be recovered for other players to make them fare. Live game analysis on the back-end would be helpful in catching the cheaters fast.

What if you are just getting beaten?

At any rate, the thing to do is to report them. Click on the report link (!) on their profile.

It takes almost no time.

The problem is they continue to come back.

That is why I originally created Friends of Rapid. For those who enjoy playing rapid without it being spoilt by engine users.

However it is very hard to build up a club for live tournaments, and also rapid swiss tournaments suffer from going on a long time with a big wait between rounds.

As a result I switched the focus to rapid live team matches. I would hope you would enjoy to play in some rapid live team matches, and would suggest you join Friends of Rapid along with everyone else who wants to play rapid chess on here, and then look out for match seeks. There is a post in the forum for match seeks.

I could do with some active admins who play rapid and are willing to bring more of them into the club, and also those who are admins of clubs, or would like to create clubs for live rapid team matches.
