Cheater no.14: Zdenek Kovar (Zdeněk Kovář)

Zdenek Kovar: professional photographer and online chess cheater

What to say more about him? I extremely dislike him for his bastard's immorality. Not only he cheated, but he cheated in serious tournaments and team matches too, moreover he undermined chess.com community by his social activities, especially in Team of the Czech Republic group. He had understood very well his untrustworthy status of high-rated unknown player and he made serious effort to make friends all over. How? He bought premium membership, so he could run and participate in several tournaments, he pretended concern for team matches (however he lost intentionally several match games to avoid cheat detection), he used Copy_&_Paste method to "write" articles and he was always ready to discuss with others using popular language. This worked for some time and by mistake he was made an admin of Czech Team.

The whole situation was about to change, when Polar_Bear woke up from winter sleep this springtime and re-opened his batch analyzer. :o) Because I have been admin too, I fired several team cheaters. In the discussion which followed (sorry, sidone's posts have disappeared), sidone showed lack of chess player's honour, considering fired cheaters victims of my pride. Analysis of sidone followed. :o) Although I was sure from the past that sidone was cheater too, the result was inconclusive at first. The problem was he cheated in sophisticated way: he controlled his moves with computer, but he chose often a minor move outside of top choice, especially in decided situations. And he threw away some games by blunders. However when I improved my analysis excluding situations outside of +- 3 pawn unit interval, he came out positive: 2.84 sd above expected value. Superadmin Kyticka666 stripped him off his admin status fired him out. The definitive end came on 3rd August during so-called "Big Ban", when all cheaters fired from Czech Team were banned from chess.com for cheating, including Mr. Zdenek Kovar aka sidone.

Well, this cheater was dangerous, because he spent effort building his social status as great human chess player sneaking into community of real chess players and trying to hide his cheating.

  1. Martin - not nice to post personal info like that. I'm sure you wouldn't like it if people started calling you up at the hospital.

  2. May it not be nice, it is necessary however. I consider chess cheating the second nastiest offence possible online, right after the pro-death propaganda (abortions).

    The guy mentioned above is morally inferior. Cheating, lies and false pretending used to be his regular tools to fix his social status. He betrayed the grandeur of royal game. I can't believe we are both the same species - human.

  3. Honestly, I am not going to harass him outside of this blog, unless he would take some action against me. I am not responsible what others will do.

  5. No, it isn't. Perhaps you missed something: since this is my blog, it is me to decide what is appropriate to be published. Only me and nobody else. Besides, people should be publicly warned against known morally inferior bastards, which online chess cheaters indeed are.

  7. It is plain simple. Cheaters are morally inferior bastards, aren't they? This dude is cheater, isn't he? So he is morally inferior bastard. It is called logic, not sick mind.

  8. Cheaters are indeed morally despicable. The whole point is that YOU have decided that YOU have the all-righteous methodology to spot and expose them. THAT is what a megalomaniac sick mind would do. In a sick mind that is indeed logic

  9. My methodology is derived from RedHotPawn game mod's. It is widely considered trustworthy.
