how can someone be considered to cheat if we were only in the opening?
did the site detected he ran a software in the background? i can see no other reason.

It's best these things are not publicly disclosed/discussed - don't you agree?
HolyShat commented :
i kinda agree but this my question was about the system,not reporting :)
DoTheMath commented :
If that information was publicly available, it would only help cheaters get better at cheating. If a cheater knows how they may get discovered, they'll find ways to avoid it, no?

He probably had the analysis board open while playing

Why the downvote? Isn't my answer correct? XD
