CONTROVERSY IN THE WORLD OF CHESS
Written by Tony Schultz on September 8, 2022
I have to wonder: how do you actually cheat at chess? Apparently there is a way, but it has to be extremely hard since it’s just 2 people playing and staring at the board while they are watched. When I came across this I read the article, but it doesn’t say how they think Hans Niemann is cheating. His solution to prove his innocence is to play naked. I doubt they will allow that to happen. Niemann did at admit to cheating while playing online, but I don’t even know how you do THAT without hacking an entire system. From what I can tell they think he used some sort or electronic device which seems odd since they get a wand search simply when doing an interview. Maybe I’m just not smart enough as they only way I know how to cheat at chess would go something like this.
