Probably been reported as a cheater

I won against a 1800s rated player (I'm rated 1600s) in crazyhouse and managed to land a certain checkmate by a Queen sac. I got a message from the player claiming that I have been reported for cheating (I also got blocked by him/her).

Should I be worried? Do I have any recourse? I worked my way up from the 1200s and I am in no way a cheater (I have some fairly embarrassing losses as proof of that).

Oh and the player stalled too.

Don't you worry.

First, your games will be scoured for evidence of cheating. No accusation can by itself give you a ban.

Secondly, craxyhouse is a chess variant, and there are no good engines/software that plays crazyhouse around. Even if there were, Lichess cannot detect cheating in Crazyhouse.

Don't worry! :)
