Spiked at 2481 in January of 2012. Now fluctuates between 2420 and 2450


And to think a few years ago there was some doubt as to whether somebody could cheat in OTB tournament play. There should be no doubt today.

Does anyone know what his results have been since that post? Did his great results continue?

Seems to have stabilized at a few points under 2400. Quick rating after a bunch of events is 1920. This disparity between established regular and quick ratings is, to say the least, unusual.

Yeah and we never did find out what miniaturization technology he used, but it was probably something similar to what the Bulgarian cheater Borislav Ivanov used, which, BTW, also was not really made public (other than to say the feedback was at the foot of the cheater, possibly the moves transmitted were coded with vibration type Morris or correspondence chess code, though whether Ivanov had a spotter or not to enter moves was not clear, I bet he did).

I think chess cheating requires a team of people. The early card counting cheaters in Las Vegas often used a team of people as well as robotic technology.
