Hello myLotters, have you ever wondered if you play chess online, your opponent won't use any chess machine (program)? I often lost in online even to the player who has ratng below me, while when it's offline, i can with match up players with 1800+ elo rating.

I experienced the same way. I thought he's a newly registered player but it became clear that he's stronger after he defeated me about five times or more. It's a bullet game so using a program would be impractical. I dont think he's cheating though, he's ability to outmaneuver me is just amazing. I'm trying to do what he did but I'm not yet as good as him. My highest rating so far is 2177 for bullet while in blitz I couldn't pass the 1900 mark.

wow, that's scary... that rating means you're an expert player or above:) In Chessmaster, i got 2000 for classic, while in online 1900. But i've never test the bullet game for rating, because it needs some special skill there, not just technique. Bullet players tend to memorize their line and get the better of us non bullet players.

You can't probably tell if your opponent from online chess game are using a high machine algorithm programed for accurate chess movement. There are some individuals around that could really beat a machine and I am the one who are able to witness such kind of situation. I am sorry to admit that I was one of those people who tries to cheat on this game due to being beaten most of the time by others.
