Hey would anyone be down for doing a DART/DDO tourney on Chess.com? 

If so, please let me know! Also, I created a DART/DDO club: https://www.chess.com/club/members-of-debateart-and-ddo

If I take part, I will cheat. That is a promise and covers me needing to prove I didn't cheat.

Chess is a 97% solved game. The 3% lies in how to avoid a stalemate and bait the opponent into a checkmate, which is something that isn't clear to a 'never lose' level of intellect for a supercomputer type or Kasparov-human-brain type. The moves you make to slant the opponent into losing are the same moves that turn a guaranteed stalemate into a potential loss for you. This is why chess is never ever going to be as great as poker in terms of a strategic war; you have a game where you need to yourself force the luck to get a winrate against other 'true masters'. It is toxic to ever truly master chess, I genuinely believe this.

Chess is a 97% solved game.

Really? It was only 94.7% solved last I checked. How time flies.

Because that's how that term works right? lol.

I like to cheat on Chess.com. Have been banned many times, usually within 10 games or so. They're pretty good at catching it. One day I will solve how to cheat at chess.com and get away with it, but for now it eludes me.

It's easy to be a serial killer too. Getting away with it is the hard part. It is very easy for algorithms to detect cheating in chess.

But you can enter moves into a AI and it calculates not build a AI to run your game

Lol how much do you even know about chess or computer programming? grandmasters train for their entire lives, some starting at the age of six or younger, to get where they are. They use all the conveniences of modern technology and modern life to help them train as well as building upon and studying the experience and works of thousands of chess players of the past some of whom spent significant portions of their lives writting books on the topic that can be studied today over the course of a few short weeks.

For all these reasons the grandmasters of today are without a doubt among the most superior chess players of all time, yet the best chess engines of today are orders of magnitude superior to them.

Given all that it should come as no surprise that it is possible to design a computer algorithm capable of telling the difference between moves made by a chess engines and moves made by some random joe like myself that plays maybe 100 games or so a week. The performance gap between the two is barely conceivable.
