No engine tournaments, no, no

At the moment I am playing the King Supertournament which is great fun - but I have to say it seems there are a handful of players who arent playing by the rules - therefore I am a little disappointed....

To me it looks like no engine tournaments are not really possible.

They can be enforced, yes.
They are possible, but only if all participants are honest.

I understand but in my opinion we have to accept this... This kind of tournament is a question of fun (to make mistakes as well) and honor (not to win but to play it by the rules!), no need to shame anyone publicly or to bring a climate of suspicion as everyone can make an opinion by watching/analyzing the games. But yes, it is possible/probable that a few players use engines even there... why, this is quite a mystery but it is always possible to cheat in this kind of tournaments.

As there's no prize or rating points to win, best is to ignore it IMO.
