Blacklist of active known chess cheaters

This page will be updated. You can write me further on my e-mail ZMartin@email.cz.

alekroth64
Aleksander Czerwoński, already caught idiot cheater from Poland who created new account, maybe with approval from the staff, but definitely without public remorse and without an approval from online chess community.

billwall
William Dale Wall, known US chess figure. He cheated at Chess.com during the "Dark Era" 2009-2010, top3 678/735, z-score +6.90, after Big Ban he sandbagged his rating down.

Janosik
Falko Bindrich, cheater banned from Playchess.com, living in Zittau. He was awarded with some titles by FIDE in the past, but he is not worthy anymore to use them of course. His chess.com "play": 14 games, top3 406/434, 5.01 sd above expected value.

osama98
Allegedly from Syria, but there are signs from other locations, e.g. this or this one, just typical mendacious noname, impersonating a bit. Typical cheater's profile. 20 games, top3 635/700, 4.31 total standard deviations above expected value.

pfren
Panayotis Frendzas, retired IM. Big bragger and chess.com forum troll. Promoter of LSS chess server and computer-assisted correspondence chess. His statistics: Top3 478/518, z-score +6.25.

simplechess
A FIDE Master Andreas Van Elst from France. Inactive now: stopped playing slow chess right after titled cheaters Dembo and Docx were banned and widely discussed. 37 games, top3 1181/1293, 5.55 standard deviations above expected value.

  1. Polar Bear, I have played half these people and THEY ARE NOT CHEATERS. What basis do you have that proves them that they are strong cheaters. They just know how to play better than you and you are a weak player!

    Romanian Team is the best and you will never beat us!

  4. Sorry guys, they ARE cheaters. Numbers don't lie, the only case here, where we can discuss a bit, is PYRRIHIOS, others are blatant cheaters, most of them are just stupid engine followers. I don't measure their true level of play, it is pretty poor in most cases (except Janosik and maybe two or three others), but rather contamination from chess engine use, which is stricly prohibited. Your laziness to read and inability to understand don't give you credit to call me names. There is serious work behind!

  8. Pola Bear, how do you track the real identity of the players you accuse?

  9. To all doubters out there: See how all of the players originally listed have now been banned or are completely inactive in turned base. Great work by Mr Zeman catching and reporting.

    In one of my groups, a person posted a note that GM Janosik has been caught for cheating in OTB tournament with a smart phone. I searched chess.com for news on this, and I searched google too, but couldn't find anything on this. Does anyone know about this? Is this true? I think it must be, considering that he has very high match up rates in chess.com turn based games.

  13. I have no doubts the idiot Bindrich is cheater in both, OTB and online chess. Only it wasn't declared by chess.com yet.

  14. How is pfren cheating?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Pfren was using computer assistance in his rated online CC games. It is against the rules of both, chess.com and true serious correspondence chess. He was pardoned by the staff and allowed to stay, but chess public should know these facts: he ceased to be master anymore, because he became a cheater.

  16. How do you know this about Pfren?

  17. I analyzed him, reported and chatted with staff member.
