  1. leowoq1 has been confirmed as a cheat. The account is already closed for violating Fair Play violations… FFS 😫

  2. I'm a rubbish blitz player and I kid you not I had 1 game at 100% it was an obvious position and the moves where easy but still if I can get 100% anyone can get 90% without cheating, though the fact he played better than svidler is somewhat suspicious

  3. Yaaay! New snail-run video from my fave grandmaster!

  4. leowoq1 has only played 6 games, with an accuracy rating high into the 90's in most of those games. The only game he has lost is when both players had around 98% accuracy.

  5. Check out that account from Game 1. Opened Oct 30. Has about 6 games and all above 90% accuracy.

  6. The first game is surely a bit suspicious. However, if you ask about a4 to me, I would say I would not think to play that move. I mean it's natural. But the speed with which he played is surely very suspicious.

  7. Nah that first guy was a sore cheater. Seems like he is a fan of Agadmator. I don't know why you got paired with this cheater.

  8. That first person is almost certainly a cheater. They've only played 6 games and their accuracy in those games was: 94.4, 98.5, 98.9, 98.5, 97.3 and then the 90.8 against you. Just went through the games as well and they very rarely think for more than 12 seconds.

  9. the first game was sus but in my lower rated 1k games ppl usually push pawn like that as soon as you castle opposite or sometime as soon as you castle(While they are not yet)

  10. Ginger gm what should we do in neutral position

  11. First guy was using an engine + making bad moves to compensate for his suspicious play

  12. that Queen sac at the end spotted in 5 seconds hahahah Im 2100 and I didnt even considered that lmao.

  13. leowoq1 has been banned for cheating hahaha

  14. To me, at 1500-1700 rating range, there are a lot of people that just throw their a or h pawn right away after opponent castle. They just really get aggressive and attack your castle king right away and I lost a lot. I don't know if they still do that on higher rating. Anyway, the 1st game is still very suspicious.

  15. To me, at 1500-1700 rating range, there are a lot of people that just throw their a or h pawn right away after opponent castle.

  16. Well done against Stockfish Simon! Seriously what is the point? Reminds me of all the guys getting cheat codes to get through levels in computer games. Why bother playing the game?

  17. Aren't you always more likely to get cheats in blitz games though? It's why I play the longer format online. Cheats can't be bothered waiting 5 minutes for you when all they need is 10 seconds to enter a computer move.

  18. IMHO in the first game the queenside castling was risky as well as the undermining of the white's center by playing f6. I always castle kingside while playing Advance French, the pawn structure of Black is solid and hard to crack. But I am only in the 1700-1800 rating range 😀

  19. what do these cheaters get out of it? oh i played a great move there well the comp did played a good game there well the comp did etc beyond me

  20. Simon doesn't consider smurf accounts which are a norm these days.
    A smurf account is a 2nd account used to play untested ideas and semi-casual games at a lower elo; this includes elo climbs (speedruns and slowruns).

  21. One of the things you've taught me is to simply have fun and not to be 'perfect'!

  22. GingerGM i was just coming to post that your first opponent most likely cheated, I can clearly spot the signs as an ex cheater myself. But I see your pinned comment and its nice to see that my suspicions are correct!

  23. The Man, the Myth, the Legend…! Great stuff as always.

  24. I got cheated in a bullet game on chesscom got refunded . I’m like how do you even cheat @ 2-1

  25. The first game made me think of a game: boris spasky vs petrossian in one of the world championship in a torre attack
