9 Games is the match not 5 points

Subject: Re:
TWB: It is not a checkers but a competition problem. Well, I see Kabe (TWB vs. pauluk40) . Yes, rating is calculated, you can resign and so force to be the winner of the match, if the rest games are pointless for you.
There exist different competition rules in sports - somewhere the match ends after 5 points but somehere not.

Why when playing a 9 games match (This match is defined by the chosen number of games only. When all games are finished, the match is completed and the player with more points wins (win - 1 point, draw - 1/2 point, loss - 0 points)) and getting to 5 points do the remaining games have to be played? The result is already known and the rating only calculated on the overall outcome (win/draw/loss) playing these other games is pointless.

Hello! Why in the game ID 7737504 I can not make a move king by two fields? I click on the king and he jumps only on one field.

I had told Bill sometime back that I didn't have to time to serve a significant role on this board. Does anyone have an interest in being the Moderator?

Very saddened by Bill's (Purple) passing. I've never met him in person, but I've played checkers him online for about 17 years. We first played on a site ItsYourMove and then we both came here. He will be missed.

This board WILL NOT sink into personal fights. This is the ONLY warning. Thank you. As the Moderator said, the personal stuff will be dropped, and the topic will be Checkers. Not accusations back and forth. And, this will not be debated here either.

biggooner 
your getting boring purple, I have played you several times, and at times you make comp moves and other times your moves are inconsistent. To some people ratings are more important than the game

Subject: Clean players

Wanna see how plays a "clean player"? See this game! It was won for me, after a hard fight. Skinny congratulated me for that. But, while talking to a friend, I made a stupid mistake, and lost it. Skinny noticed it, asked me what happened, and when I told him, he offered me the draw! That's what a great player do!


I resigned the game, because it was my mistake, but preciate skinny's attitud. That's because of players like skinny that BK it's still a good site.

Subject: Re:
Darles Chickens: Programs play very predicatable lines but not.easy to spot. Many legitimate players use the same few moves so it takes lots of games to spot a user. A few years ago a player unashamedly sold his Checker programs right here on this site. The late, great Richard Fortman beat programs very often..so have some others.

Darles Chickens 
And if all have the knowledge about available programs, I think it would be easier to catch the cheaters and prevent the use...

Subject: Re:
Purple: ok, let's put a stone on km's grave, never forgetting the evilness of a few (5, huh?)... Now, back to the first goal, and I hope you do have a word to say... It is regretable to use programs in our games!  It's not honest and this should be inculcated in everyone's conciousness. We can't prove with certainty that someone used a program against us, but we can decline a game against someone if we suspect he's using a program. The only way I have to check if someone's using a program is to analyse all moves and make a comparison. and even so it's very hard, because we have to run several programs. So, back to beginning, unless someone has a better idea, its all a question of conciousness...

Subject: Re:
Darles Chickens: Out of 68 KM members there were 5 using programs. There were many more innocent than the few guilty. There were bans for multiple nics and ratings boosting..not for program use.

Subject: Re:
Purple: I wonder...Why did you posted that km comment, if I only wrote that I would like everyone to know what programs are beeing used in checkers and anti-checkers games, to prevent cheating? I know you're a good person and your subconscious send you a message to discard yourself from that regretable group...But, as Shakespeare wrote in Julius Caesar's play and you very well quoted: "The evil that men do lives after them..the good is often interred with their bones", I guess km evil is very alive, because some players are still using such programs...

Darles Chickens: I'm still blocked by Purple because I asked about KM group and "the possibility" of cheating... eheheheh. I see some bones up in the air, never interred! ;)


Yeah, programs are such an idiot way to win games. I can't understand why some people do it! I have my own theory, but I'll tell it to you in some other place, where my words can't be deleted, Mr. Darles. ;)

Or maybe praiseworthy for those who only seek win, regardeless the means to achieve it...For me, using a program is always regrettable and shows lack of principles.
