We can't determine a cheater from just an accuracy analysis. Perhaps the player was simply good, or most of the moves were forced, leading to high accuracy. However, for an average player to get 99% accuracy, this clearly is a warning. There is a better approach to detect cheating. A game can be analysed to see how 'computer-like' the moves are. If a person ...

The best way is to look away from the screen every 15 minutes. It reduces stress on your eyes and you can concentrate better when you return to the game.

Did you already see lichess.org? This website has great tournament functionality. E.g. you can start a swiss tournament and add the participants by making them part of a team. Hence there will be no outsiders present. Hope this helps :)

I haven't played on Chessbase for quite some time, but generally loss on time through disconnect is still a loss and loses rating accordingly. Otherwise too many people would just disconnect, obviously. Lichess punishes people who let the time run out with a ban (after several such incidents), so it might be less of a problem there.

Using Eye Drops (fake tears) can be useful when exceeding recommended screen time. What also helps me is taking frequent breaks every hour and drinking plenty of water.

Windows 10 has a setting called "Night Light" in the display settings, and Mac has Night Shift which helps me with eye-strain by reducing blue-light that can cause eye-strain. You can also try the 20-20-20 technique instead of taking a 5 minute break every hour. My eye doctor suggested staring at something 20 feet away, for 20 seconds, every 20 ...

Im only 1000 in blitz and get 90 - 95 games at least 5 times each day, no it doesn't mean someone is cheating, grandmasters get high nineties every single game.

First of all, I do not think Black's king would be safe at all on h5. After Kh5 simply Rd4 would threaten Bf3#. Many other concrete threats also come to mind with the king on h5, but the idea is the same: the king is one check away from checkmate, since no squares are available for him. Of course all of this is ignoring the fact that Black can force a draw. ...

The gameplay accuracy is a scale from 0 to 100 and it is calculated based on the accuracy of each of your moves. Chess.com collects a lot of data from played games that they use to evaluate which moves are more important for the final accuracy. The final accuracy is a weighted average and that explains when you play a game with two book moves and a blunder ...

You cant. They are just a rough guide about how you did. The only factor is who won/lost the game.

I think, yesterday, I have answered such a question here. I am just pasting the answer and adding a few resources to it. You should keep these in your mind. Smooth Transition: As per other answers, I think you should try 15+0 [Rapid] >> 10+5 >> 10+0 >> 5+5 / 5+3 [Blitz] >> 5+0 >> 3+2 >> 3+0 >> 2+1[Bullet] >> 1+...

Your question is interesting. I think I can share my experience because I am playing bullet for quite some time now. I used to use a touchscreen (Galaxy Tab S5E), but for the last couple of months, I am using a mouse. Both of them have benefits as well as drawbacks to their side. The best benefit for the touchscreen is reachability with accuracy. You can ...

Depends on you, your hand-eye coordination, and how well your mouse or touch screen works. There is no one answer that is right for everyone to use.

The web version as implemented by chess.com is laggy and your clock runs down without you knowing when the browser is loading and the timer is suffering severe latency problems. I created the original Prototype A of this puzzle app style and it was lag proof but chess.com copied it and didn’t know how to avoid this issue.
