I believe bots would be fair game. Humans would just have to evolve past them, haha.

Impossible to prevent cheating. Say you go first. I use an external bot, possibly on a different computer, to mimic your move and I just see what the computer's answer is and copy that. I did it a couple of times in Go when I was still a beginner to get back at the sandbaggers pretending to be worse than they really were so they could beat up newbies. But Go is too complex for computers after a certain level so cheating at high levels is impossible without having a better player than you tell you what moves to make.

If it is a game of Go, let the bots play.  Somebody still has to put up real money for a game.

Use the web of trust GPG authentication method on each a login.

You can ask for it if you plan allowing people to engage in gambling.

Go originated as a gambling game.  Confucius hated it.  I had been banned from KGS multiple times for encouraging gambling and drugs (valium specifically for relaxation and PERFECT clarity in the chuban phase.)

How strong are you, Traders?

8 kyu on 19 by 19 and a very nasty dan level player at 9 by 9.

Haven't played a serious game in awhile.  Been teaching my 6yo nephew and 3yo niece lately.

It is part of my evil plan to unleash single digit age kyu players on the world.  :-)

This sounds cool!

Only an amateur at chess, and really low level in Go, but if this happens, I think I might join, at least for the low stakes games.  Might even improve a bit.
