This is a chess tournament (Warzone Kings) I competed in on chesscube.com while livestreaming on http://twitch.tv/ChessNetwork .Time controls are 1 minute per player, however with a time handicap they are adjusted according to both players’ ratings.

Cheating was done mostly by strong players (~Master/Expert level) who created additional accounts and acquired a low rating by losing on purpose, only to then play their full strength against specific opponents such as myself. The result was that these players benefited by having a significant time edge. Additionally, accounts I didn’t play during the tournament began games and immediately resigned throughout the whole tournament. This resulted in a great increase in several players’ scores, and compromised the integrity of the tournament. Sad 🙁

Remember to spread sportsmanship, not this nonsense.

Accounts (not the players themselves), that contributed to the cheating in a combination of tournaments that were “eventually” banned for cheating:
