A huge scandal is rocking the world of competitive chess after the shocking defeat of the world’s greatest chess player at the hands of 19-year-old Hans Niemann.
A few weeks ago, Magnus Carlsen’s 53-game unbeaten streak was snapped by a largely unknown teenager from America named Hans Niemann. That’s fine, winning and losing are part of the game. But something irritated grandmaster Carlsen, who decided to remove his name from the rest of the tournament.
Carlsen’s withdrawal from the tournament is a big reason in itself. But then he ended up tweeting an old clip of José Mourinho, where the Chelsea manager says: “I really prefer not to talk. If I speak up, I’m in big trouble.” Mourinho used this after feeling that the referee had wronged him. Does Carlsen feel that something bad has happened to him in the Sinquefield Cup?
Hans Niemann, 19, an up-and-coming star in the game, was sensationally accused online of using anal beads hooked up to a computer program that would vibrate and give him the perfect AI moves to take down world No. 1 grandmaster Magnus Carlsen.
In response to internet rumours accusing him of using anal beads to cheat, Niemann said, “If they want me to get completely naked, I will. “I don’t care. Because I know I’m clean. “You want me to play in a closed box with zero electronic transmission, I don’t care. I’m here to win and that’s my goal regardless.”
Sex toy destined for cheating
After the controversy in the tournament, social networks appeared to add more pepper to the confrontation between the two chess masters. There began to talk about the method that Niemann could have used to cheat and the version of a sex toy designed to send messages during the game was shot.
The popular magazine Vice echoed this theory and pointed out that the player could have used vibration-based buttons on his shoes to communicate with a chess engine hidden somewhere in his clothes. This in order to get outside advice on what moves to make. For this reason, sex toys were the biggest targeted by lovers of conspiracy theories.
The Riverfront Times, a newspaper in St. Louis, where the competition was held, noted that there may have been “unsubstantiated accusations” that Niemann during his game with Carlsen was hacking into a computer using a “prostate massager” or “wireless anal beads” on his feet.
Tycoon Elon Musk also endorsed this theory in a tweet that he later deleted: “Talent reaches a goal that no one else can reach, genius reaches a goal that no one can see (because it’s on your ass),” joked the owner of Tesla.
Beyond the crazy ideas of how Niemann would have cheated or not, The Guardian confirmed that the player was registered before the controversial game and the review did not show anything unforeseen.
Nieman, a 19-year-old who already has a cheating record
The accusations of cheating against Nienam are based on a sanction that the young man received from the chess.com page , the most prestigious on the circuit, when they discovered that at the age of 12 he had won an online game illegally. The American admitted that a friend brought an iPad loaded with a “chess engine” program that helped him to victory.
“We have contacted Niemann to explain our decision to privately remove him from Chess.com and our events. We have shared detailed evidence with him about our decision, including information that contradicts his statements about the amount and severity of his cheating,” the company argued.
Nieman’s defense of alleged cheating and use of sex toys
Far from remaining silent, Niemann, a 19-year-old American came out at the crossroads of the accusations: “I never cheated in a game on the board. If they want me to get completely naked, I will, ”he pointed out furiously.
Finally, he added: “I don’t care. Because I know I’m clean. If you want me to play in a closed draw with zero electronic transmission, I don’t care. I’m here to win and that’s my goal.”
Some historical figures of chess gave their opinion on the subject and asked for explanations. “I will not delve into the ugly innuendos of the matter, but I must comment on what we do know: The world chess champion withdrew from the world’s most important tournament in St. Louis, an act unprecedented in the last 50 years, and his consent is required. explanation,” Garry Kasparov tweeted.
