  Sally Simpson: Hi, Miss Scarlett,

Speaking of books, I expect to see any day now;

"How to Detect an Online Chess Cheat.'
by Ivor Notation and Anna Lyess

(please feel free anyone to add better authors, these two were too obvious. I want a couple of goodies so can make up a false cover of the above title and blog it.)

Hi Beatgiant,

Thank you.

I'll leave it switched off, the non subs (bless them) will not be privy to my pearls of wisdom and I do not want Crazy Harry dropping music videos or pictures of Fischer all my private forum.

Thanks Again.

  Teyss: Hi Sally,

<Going to have a bash at getting this back on topic.> Oh no, not my type and it's not the style of this site at all. I just imagine the poor driver waiting an hour in line, carrying two plastered chaps up a hill for half a quid before cleaning the puke from the back seats. Let's hope he didn't realise you both are Chess players, wouldn't be good for the reputation of the game.

"How to Detect an Online Chess Cheat" by Avery Body?
And "How to Detect an OTB Chess Cheat" by Alma Teurdetectives?

We posted at the same time. Good cover page.

  al wazir: <theagenbiteofinwit: Its middle English from Kent. Its literally translated "the again biting of inner wit."> I think "agen" is "agony."

Its meaning is "the remorse of conscience," or more crudely, "guilt feelings."

  theagenbiteofinwit: I wonder if there were chess players in 1800 coffee houses who debated whether or not Paul Morphy was aided by sorcery during his legendary run...

  Sally Simpson: We know Edge made up the games.
Morphy was winning them but not it the glittering way as given in the books. Most were Carlsen type grinds.

Remember Staunton said he would not mind losing to Morphy but he did want the world to think he played that badly to lose gloriously in under 25 moves to a game Edge made up.

Round about 1860 the secret of chess notation, till then only known to Edge was discovered by the Austrian Rabbi Steinitz. He published how to do it and here we are.

Hi Teyss,

We were not drunk, we were coming back from a chess thing. We just did not fancy walking up a steep hill with our 71 year old legs.

Good thinking. Walking downhill is actually better exercise.

  perfidious: <Geoff>, that being so, Alekhine merely thought he was the first to embellish some of his games.
Oct-03-22  Chessius the Messius: Good old Al Heinek.
Oct-04-22  peristilo: Chessius the Messius, are you stealing my thoughts? How do you that? lol
Oct-04-22  peristilo: Chessius the Messius, I mean, the part about Uri Geller.
Oct-05-22  Shamot: Wall Steet Journal published a story on Niemann's cheating about 5 hours ago. Very interesting and shocking! Must read to find out the truth.
Oct-05-22  stone free or die: The report is out on <chess.com>.

Here's a link to the version on google drive:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/11I...

Oct-05-22  peristilo: stone free or die, you have no proof that this report is correct. Magnus is the only cheater. Hans is a true champion.
Oct-05-22  Chessius the Messius: <peristilo>

No, I only steal opening moves nowadays.

The report does not exactly contain new info, other than new accusations. It ain't much, that report, but I think it was not to expect the report of chess dot com would come up with real proof.

  fredthebear: <did not fancy walking up a steep hill with our 71 year old legs.>

Is it a coincidence that the self-named (meaning in name only) Fair Play Team uncorked a 71 pager? The last page is blank so it doesn't count unless there's hidden code on it.

Don't get me wrong -- I'm sitting on the fence. I don't fancy Uber or a drunk limousine driver. I have the time and money to read the Wall Skeet Journal, which really used to be a Walled Street back in the 1600s. Not our beloved Bill, but a real honest to goodness Wall.

The Chess Player's Handbook by Staunton, published in 1847 has more than one form of chess notation. Algebraic notation can be found on Levis page 501, I kid you not. I have that page memorized.

Good old Al Heinek. He was a snip off the lock.

Oct-05-22  stone free or die: <peristilo> the report is definitely an important document now in the public record.

I think I've already voiced several points of criticism on it, but I'm still chewing on it. Still, there's no denying <chess.com> has the data, and is the starting point of Niemann cheating history.

I hope it's also the end of the cheating, but one must keep an open mind.

As far as Niemann being a champion - well that seems a bit premature to me. I think the fundamental question he has reached the elite level of play (i.e. joining the 2700+ club).

I will admit he has played at a very high level at both Sinquefield and Baer, and seems to be at the door sill. Especially given the pressure he must be under.

The US Championship will mark another good test.

Oct-05-22  peristilo: stone free or die, I was being sarcastic.

  fredthebear: I was being strange. Maybe it was the left-over linguine carbonara for breakfast. But Staunton's Handbook surely was quite impressive for 1847; instructive still - the board still as 64 squares and 34 units.
Oct-06-22  stone free or die: <<peristilo> stone free or die, I was being sarcastic.>

Ha, hoisted up by my own petard - I missed that.

At least you got a good measure of my pedantic best!
