    My 3/3 win against Pharaoh(?). It was somebody anyway. Please confirm whoever it is: https://en.lichess.org/EAyHFmff

    I really don't want to be like this, but every move you played was an engine move, and move 18 in the game really tested that: I had my suspicion that you were using an engine so I got out my engine, inputted the position and played a bad move (hanging my rook) but after taking your time, you castled queenside instead of taking the free rook: castling was the engine move. Also, your average centipawn loss of just 6 again highlights that you are either one of the best chess players ever or you had some engine assistance.

    EDIT: I am just suspicious, and if you can prove to me that you weren't using an engine, then feel free, and it's very possible that you are an incredibly good chess player and if so I praise you for that. It's just that I do have my concerns, and if I am wrong, then VERY well played. Exceptional.

    To be fair I probably wouldn't bother to take the rook there if I thought it through (that may be what he was taking his time with). It's clear that black's king is all at sea, and it seems the knight gets won back no matter what, so you would only be winning an exchange at most.

    Yeah, I agree with that actually. Having had lunch I realise that all of Athematica 's moves were pretty logical and straightforward, and a much better player than someone else could probably play near perfect chess in relatively simple positions against a much lower rated player. Hence Athematica most likely just beat me fair and square, but because I am much lower rated than him and the game was quite simple, he ended up playing engine moves, which were the most logical moves anyway.

    Electrospective I haven't played anyone anonymously and I haven't played PharaohFromSpace .

    My games are: 1 win and a draw against Kyx and a defeat against Athematica .

    It's not so serious. You can play other as well. Just make sure you play that game.
