How do you actually "observe" someone at chess.com?

It's a horribly designed site. I have an account there, but hardly ever use it.

Edit: I figured out a way, by searching for playkomodo and clicking on the latest game.

No games are currently in progress.

Second game was won decisively by playkomodo (g1 odds). Third game (960 knight odds) is in the endgame now fairly even. Komodo won it. Fourth game (960) in a couple minutes.

Fourth game (960 knight odds) opening is amazing. Komodo gambited two pawns in the first four moves!

So finally Komodo won all the games after the initial draw, 0.5 to 5.5. Ray's best game was the final one, f7 + g7 odds, where he reached the endgame still two pawns ahead, but there were enough complications and time shortage for Komodo to win anyway. Apparently raising Contempt to 200 made a big difference in the knight odds games. I suppose future matches will mostly be knight odds, with details varying depending on level of opponent and time limit. Perhaps we can already challenge a low rated GM (not as low as myself!) to knight odds at quick rapid like this.

The most amazing game, White just gambits two pawns on moves 3 and 4, and it worked.

Ray's near-win. He was three pawns up after 31 moves.
