monkey games
Posted: Nov 7, 2001, 9:01 AM

I play on IYT on October main 1. Kevin Sackett
made same moves like me (both games) against Arne
Blom. What can I do? Can I suggest Arne if he made
wrong move after his move? It will be our game. If he
made bad move I answer and write him my opinion. He
can use it or not. Is it bad? Not my problem that
Kevin played same games.

If the game is still early it may be that Kevin
is not necessarily copying your moves but is
following a common opening sequence, and in time the games
will diverge. IYT does not have any rule against
copying moves from one game to another, but you can use
the 48 hour time limit to try to stop it. If Kevin is
playing black against you and white against Arne in a
game with the identical position, using your moves to
move against Arne and Arne's move against you, try to
wait until Kevin is forced to move first. That is,
after Arne makes a move in the game, there will be some
time before Kevin uses that move in his game against
you (hopefully more than a few minutes). Just wait 48
hrs after Arne has moved before you make your next
move -- Kevin will have to move before you or
forfeit.

Or maybe you mean that you are black against Arne
and Kevin is also black against Arne and is using
your moves against Arne. Here you could write to Arne
and have Arne move first against Kevin, then wait a
while before moving against you. That way Kevin will
have to move against Arne before you do.
