Impressive Levels of Sexism at Women's Grand Prix

He can certainly monetize this whole scandal. There was an article posted on this sub in the past couple days about Hans asking for the same amount Magnus gets for an appearance fee at a tournament. So he's aware of this. But these would need to be at tournaments that Magnus isn't competing in. I don't think he would have ever wanted any attention being put on his cheating past though. It's not over yet either. Apparently Chess.com is saying more info is forthcoming in regards to this - Hans has to be shitting bricks.

Magnus is supposed to actually get some proof (not just I feel like he is) and/or go through private channels first. There was no reason for him to start a witchhunt.

So Magnus is supposed to just accept playing someone who he firmly believes is a cheater on the off chance they might kill themselves? Where do we draw the line on this? Should we not criticize bullying on the off chance the bully kills themself? Should we not criticize a thief on the off chance they might kill themselves? What level is Magnus allowed to take it to that would be the appropriate amount of risk that the person might kill themselves?

> People have killed themselves over a lot less. I've been thinking the same thing. If Hans does something to himself, Magnus can sit on his high horse and live with the fact that he played a part in it.

Hypothetically speaking: if it was somehow confirmed that Niemann is a serial otb cheater, and then he killed himself after getting caught, whose fault would that be?

Not to be too morbid, but to consider the obvious.. If Hans were to kill himself (either tomorrow or decades from now) the same people will still argue over whether it was because he was innocent and couldn't carry the burden of all the accusations—or he was guilty, and could no longer carry *that* burden.

A Statistical Analysis of Hans Niemann's Tournament Performances 2019-2020long time lurker, stumbled across this and had to share **Abstract** This paper analyzes 142 games of GM Hans Niemann from 2019 and 2020 in order to get a better idea of how impressive they were. We per- form a t-test and a permutation test on the results, which yield 0.03% and 0.004% chances of the results happening naturally, respectively. We believe this is the first mathematically rigorous statistical work on the topic.

As i said beneath, for athletes, it is a very different case. Lance Armstrong was absolutely sure he could get away with these things because he had doctors providing him with drugs that they knew would not be detected in tests [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michele\_Ferrari#2012\_USADA\_indictment\_and\_lifetime\_ban](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michele_Ferrari#2012_USADA_indictment_and_lifetime_ban) In professional sports, there are people, often doctors or even trainers, that are happy to provide you with substances that they assure you will never be detected. And look at how many clients Ferrari had. Everybody in cycling knew what kind of doctor he was, everybody also knew that his clients didnt get caught (at least until quite some time later). That is a double incentive: 1) Because everybody does it, you do not think it is even wrong, it comes naturally by a guy whose job is to do it for you. 2) You are assured that you will not get caught. With Niemann, he MIGHT have a coach who convinced him to do it and had some idea how to do it. But that is a far shot from a world where your rivals systematically do it in large numbers without getting caught and where you'd just be one of many to employ a guy who helps you. Let's just say it is one thing to get a shot of "medicine" that you are assured from a doctor (whose reputation is on the line, too) will never be detected and then cycle, or to be the only guy among a tightknit circle of top chessplayers that has anal beads in his body. I am not saying people in chess do not cheat, ever, I am saying that i doubt cheating in chess is very prevalent because there is little incentive, a high risk and no established culture of cheating.

I don't see why we can't just scan players thoroughly when they are entering the tournament area and then not let them leave. As far as I know there are ways of doing this. All that's really necessary is a really good camera system. If you're on camera and you show any sign of cheating (how would you input moves to a computer without showing some kind of physical tell?) that camera evidence can be analyzed for years into the future. I'm sure someone will come along and say that they can do it with anal beads, but that's just ridiculous. Even if people were actually cheating at these top level events, they're not that sophisticated. We're not dealing with KGB spies using high level military technology. Implement some basic measures and you're good to go. Niemann has said he'll play naked if he has to. In my opinion this is what an innocent person would say. Let magnus determine the method of anti cheat if he wants to. But don't let magnus destroy this man's career without a fair shake.

It seems like what you say is correct. What's cool is that this is a binary outcome ... he either cheated or he didn't. There is no 1/2 cheating ... kinda like a woman can't be 1/2 pregnant. Given that, there will be a lot of eyes on Hans and for a bit, that might shake him up ... but after a few tournaments he'll get used to the excess scrutiny. He'll be in a spot where he simply can't cheat. At that point, he'll either perform at an extremely high level, or he won't (i.e. he actually was cheating). Within a year, we'll have a good indication on what is going on here. One of these two will look very bad in a year or so. This is also a one bullet gun for Carlsen. It will be tough for him to accuse someone else of cheating (unless it is somehow proven that Hans cheated). The whole "fanboy" theory, I think, has a lot of merit. Carlsen is very appealing. He doesn't seem neurotic (like Fisher). He comes across as kinda likable. He doesn't seem arrogant or cocky. He's actually an excellent spokesperson for the game. Hans, not so much. He appears both neurotic and cocky. In that way he is the one more like Fisher. I'm not "Mr. Chess" so I don't know the facts ... what did Hans do in the past (cheating wise?) Use an engine while playing online? How old was he when he did this (High School?)?

If I did itModern electronics can include significant computing power and broadcast ability in a very tiny package. For example, take the nRF52832 based bluetooth module from Taiyo Yuden: EYSHSNZWZ ([https://www.digikey.com/en/product-highlight/t/taiyo-yuden/eyshsnzwz-bluetooth-module](https://www.digikey.com/en/product-highlight/t/taiyo-yuden/eyshsnzwz-bluetooth-module)), which can be had for as little at $15 (prior to chip shortages) and 10 of them can fit on a US dime. Such a module could be powered from a minuscule lithium button cell battery like a [**CR1025**](https://www.digikey.com/en/products/result?s=N4IgjCBcoLQCxVAYygMwIYBsDOBTANCAG4B2aWehA9lANrgCcA7AGwQC6hADgC5QggAvsKA) and can have a broadcast/receive range of up to 70 meters. If you created an electrical contact with a metal tooth filling, and another contact with gum tissue, you could easily RECEIVE a signal via a low voltage electric shock, which could be controlled via the bluetooth module. If you have a silver tooth filling, you can experience this type of shock by biting down on some aluminum foil, which will create a battery with about 1.7 volts, which is about the same voltage with which you could drive output on the bluetooth module's power supply. If you added a small electrical contact that could be opened and closed with your tongue (even two simple wires could do this), you could also SEND a signal to the bluetooth module (and then on to a computer, phone, etc). If it were me, I would encase the whole setup in a silicone mold that resembled chewing gum and attach it to a back tooth with a filling, it would only begin transmitting when I entered a morse code-like sequence and let me both send and receive information from a computer or phone in the area - I wouldn't even need an accomplice. A useful prop, like a pack of chewing gum, would give me cover even if someone asked to see my mouth, and any metal detections could be chalked up to my metal tooth fillings. Sending and receiving signals without any obvious movements would now be a breeze and I'm sure I could play a lot of fun games with a tool like this. ;)

or what if he finally fully grasped the implications of playing someone who he thinks might have the capability to cheat? fine, hans didnt cheat in those games -- but have you asked yourself why magnus played so poorly? it is not on magnus or any other chess player to carry that mental burden IN GAME due to someone else's suspected behavior. I have always believed that it was that specific injustice -- one that shouldn't be underestimated -- that pushed magnus over the edge to act sooner, rather than let someone act later or for hans to get caught.

IMO the problem is that the chess world is over here with the anal beads, Twitter drama, Twitch subscribers, etc., and the actual people involved are over there with the lawyers and the corporate types, immediately post-acquisition. I think we should assume Magnus was being as straightforward and fair as possible, because most people do that when things get legal. It's like, he's the world champion, he has this big responsibility. Yes, he does, and we should assume that he's aware of it and acting accordingly.

Too many pseudo-intellectuals in this seemingly horrendous sub, all twisting around the context of my words and even putting words in my mouth because you're all too insecure to actually argue with me by avoiding subjective statements and actually using sound logic.

You mention libel in response to a comment discussing why potential legal concerns magnus could impact what magnus chooses to say. It is reasonable to assume a legal interpretation of ‘libel’ might be relevant In a legal context, you are obviously wrong at least per US law (which you seem to know since you tried to pivot away (since I’m in the US I think of US law) The definition of libel hinges on publishing a *false* statement. So it is only the definition of libel if you can also define his opinion as false

I don't see why we can't just scan players thoroughly when they are entering the tournament area and then not let them leave. As far as I know there are ways of doing this. All that's really necessary is a really good camera system. If you're on camera and you show any sign of cheating (how would you input moves to a computer without showing some kind of physical tell?) that camera evidence can be analyzed for years into the future. I'm sure someone will come along and say that they can do it with anal beads, but that's just ridiculous. Even if people were actually cheating at these top level events, they're not that sophisticated. We're not dealing with KGB spies using high level military technology. Implement some basic measures and you're good to go. Niemann has said he'll play naked if he has to. In my opinion this is what an innocent person would say. Let magnus determine the method of anti cheat if he wants to. But don't let magnus destroy this man's career without a fair shake.

As i said beneath, for athletes, it is a very different case. Lance Armstrong was absolutely sure he could get away with these things because he had doctors providing him with drugs that they knew would not be detected in tests [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michele\_Ferrari#2012\_USADA\_indictment\_and\_lifetime\_ban](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michele_Ferrari#2012_USADA_indictment_and_lifetime_ban) In professional sports, there are people, often doctors or even trainers, that are happy to provide you with substances that they assure you will never be detected. And look at how many clients Ferrari had. Everybody in cycling knew what kind of doctor he was, everybody also knew that his clients didnt get caught (at least until quite some time later). That is a double incentive: 1) Because everybody does it, you do not think it is even wrong, it comes naturally by a guy whose job is to do it for you. 2) You are assured that you will not get caught. With Niemann, he MIGHT have a coach who convinced him to do it and had some idea how to do it. But that is a far shot from a world where your rivals systematically do it in large numbers without getting caught and where you'd just be one of many to employ a guy who helps you. Let's just say it is one thing to get a shot of "medicine" that you are assured from a doctor (whose reputation is on the line, too) will never be detected and then cycle, or to be the only guy among a tightknit circle of top chessplayers that has anal beads in his body. I am not saying people in chess do not cheat, ever, I am saying that i doubt cheating in chess is very prevalent because there is little incentive, a high risk and no established culture of cheating.

The Hans Niemann Problem and The World Cup of Cheating# 1. THE HANS NIEMANN PROBLEM: AI IS DISRUPTING CHESS CULTURE The Hans Niemann Problem isn't about Hans Niemann. It's about cultural disruption in the face of rising influence of artificial intelligence. It isn't just that AI augmented cheating may have taken place in this or that game of chess. It's that nobody can tell anymore who cheated and who did not. Only AI can tell us that. And thus, chess is locked in to an AI arms race. AI is augmenting more and more chess games, and AI has to get smarter to detect those fraudulent games and players. AI has become a weapon that is both damaging and defending the possibility of human-to-human play. And this extends beyond the game itself. Online bots are presenting themselves as plausible human players. With present day AI face and voice technologies it is possible to create entire plausible personas that pass the web cam test. Probably within the next 10 years, the creation and deployment of these personas will be one-click solutions. What is happening to chess is symptomatic of what is happening to human beings facing the rising power of AI. This cheating controversy gives us a taste of the future: the breakdown of norms and expectations leaving organized human-to-human chess untenable, FIDE rankings meaningless, chess culture a morass of cheating scandals and antagonistic social media clutter that amounts to nothing. This can and will happen in other areas of human endeavor. (See recent developments in the art world due to Dalle-2.) The disruption of AI is detectable in chess because of the special relationship of chess and AI development, and the simplicity of its organization and ranking systems. In other forms of human organization, it may not be as easy to detect or understand the detrimental effects of AI. It may not be as clear what to do when things go wrong. Thus addressing the problem of AI within the context of the chess world may provide opportunities for detecting, comprehending, and resolving AI induced cultural disruptions before they more fully destabilize human culture. # 2. CHESS LACKS FORMALIZED CHEATING *FORGIVENESS* Now that we are in a situation where (a) anyone can cheat, especially online but also in lax tournaments, and (b) anyone can make an accusation of cheating, and have those accusations or insinuations amplified on social media. Chess needs new methods not only for detecting cheating but also for adjudicating suspicions and accusations of cheating. It is absolutely unacceptable for a top 50 player (Hans Niemann) to be widely suspected of being a cheater in the present tense. It is bad for chess for people to think the top players are cheaters. And it is wrong to effectively convict someone of something that has been unproven (example: that Hans cheated in his game with Magnus). Youth also proposes problems. Hans Niemann is only 19. He is at the beginning of his adult life and career path. Generally speaking, wayward youth are treated more leniently than adults, and their criminal records are scrubbed when they turn 18 so that they have a second chance. There are many cases of wayward youth becoming responsible and contributing members of society. In chess there is a special problem because youth are taken seriously as chess players. We grant them the right to be taken seriously as chess players and we expect them to take that responsibility seriously. There is a tension then between granting honor to strong young players and wiping their youthful behavior away as insignificant. (It would be different, for instance, if there was a youth league, and chess players did not start their FIDE rating until age 18.) We should extend a similar generous spirit to Hans Niemann, and consider his under-18 cheating as wayward behavior. The problem is, given the history of cheating in chess, given the present development of AI and cheating technologies, how can the veil of suspicion be lifted from Niemann so that he can join the ranks of legitimate players once more? In light of the above developments, the chess world needs to **formalize cheating forgiveness** that does not depend upon age. But how can we forgive cheating without encouraging it? # 3. PROPOSAL: THE WORLD CUP OF CHEATING To address the above concerns, I propose **The World Cup of Cheating**: 1. **Trial by Chess**: Chess players who have been indicated as probable cheaters by anti cheating authorities within the chess world (FIDE, chess.com) will have an opportunity to redeem themselves through play under the strictest anti cheating conditions possible. If they can play at their rating under these conditions, it should be assumed that their rating is representative of their actual ability. This will provide some objective evidence that observers can use to support or quell suspicions of cheating. Suspected cheats who refuse to be trialed in this way should be excluded from tournament play. It will also be an opportunity for top players who have never been suspected of cheating to support the integrity of chess by playing against suspect players. 2. **Red Team Play**: Hackers will secretly test new technologies in the field against cheating detection methods. Tournament organizers from around the world will be invited to observe the strengths and vulnerabilities of common tournament conditions, and attempt to detect and explain various devices and methods. This will give tournament organizers from around the world more experience so that regional tournaments can improve their anti-cheating tactics. 3. **Red Team Conference**: Here Hackers will report vulnerabilities and new technologies, chess-world stakeholders will discuss the state of the game, and intellectuals of various stripes will draw attention to broader implications of advances in AI, security, and culture. The WCC could take place every 2 years. This would permit a period of punitive banning for identified cheaters of up to 2 years between opportunities for redemption. I offer this idea to the public for its consideration because I have no means to undertake these plans myself.

Is it reasonable to believe that magnus lost fair and square?This post is not focused on whether Hans cheated or not. I'm not trying to spark a debate about the security at the event or anything like that. I purely want to focus on one question: Is it reasonable to believe that he lost fair and square? In some video games, even if a player is of a much higher skill level, they will sometimes just lose to a worse player, and this won't be super rare. An example could be DS3 PVP. A player can make generally better decisions, have better reaction times, and have more game knowledge, but their opponent might get a lucky parry in or act in unpredictable ways and this might result in the worse player winning. Then again chess has a very deterministic nature. You're not going to lose if you just had a hiccup and reacted too slowly one time. Considering this and that the game state is always completely visible to both parties, I'm wondering if chess is even comparable to the aforementioned video game. So, having fleshed out my question, is it reasonable to believe that Magnus will just lose sometimes, even against a worse player? Or should Magnus really be winning almost every single time?

Not rly, not in game which contains 48 moves (he had like that) with 100% accuracy? Okay, playing 10-15 moves in simple game is possible. Playing so long game over the board with 100% accuracy is nearly impossible for nobody living. Sorry. Dont forget that, in many of that games difference was not so big between players, many times equal, sometimes 50-100 points higher. BUT 2850 rated performance in 6 tournaments when u are around 2400 rank? CMON, Bigger average than Bobby, than magnus, than anyone. Dont act like a fool, its clear he was cheating

>Hans is an adult man and we need to treat him like one. Especially if he's to be taken seriously at the top level of chess. High profile chess commentators could start by not making jokes about the anal bead 'theory'. It's humiliating, unsubstantiated and borders on sexual harassment. This would never be openly joked about if Hans was a female player, people seem absolutely fine with this regardless of his age so I don't think he's getting any kind of special treatment.

Which engine does Hans use to cheat? Surely if he was going to go through all the effort of anal beads and morse code, he'd retrain Leela instead of using the default neural network. That would be virtually undetectable, because the moves wouldn't match any known engine. Since this is not only possible, but obvious and preferred to anyone with a serious cheating goal, any "look at the engine and compare moves" analysis is worthless.

What..? I don't think you know what appeals to authority means. I have not said Magnus said it, therefore it is true; I said given Magnus' reputation in the chess world, we are giving him the benefit of doubt contingent on THAT HE HAS EXTRA EVIDENCE. In other words, if he does not present any evidence, people will no longer give him the benefit of doubt. No one (in the chess community), as of right now, has said Magnus or Hans is right in regards to the cheating allegation because we have yet to see the evidence so far. People have spoke about their suspicions, and gave opinions on how Magnus handled the situation and about the security measures, etc, which are all subsidiary topics. Jesus Christ, you are treating people like imbeciles. You really think if Hans gave Magnus permission, people won't be able to distinguish the facts from opinion? Granted you may think the populous as a whole can do this - do you think the chess organizers, the investors/sponsors, and the titled players all won't be able to siphon through the information and weed out the opinions from the facts? That they'd act like braindead droves who blindly support Magnus just because he says so. Where is the justification for such a cynical take? Even FIDE had subtly warned Magnus that he has a moral responsibility as the World Champion. >why would you take that risk? Because Hans had already admitted to cheating and Chesscom's statement turned him into a liar. Right now, his trustworthiness is at an all time low within the community, therefore Magnus has a lot of ammunation on him. Magnus already said it's either him or me, and it's trivial to see who the organizers will pick as of now. The only way Hans can garner support (granted he didn't cheat OTB) is if he allows people to openly discuss their thoughts/claims and have the people or himself to directly refute those thoughts/claims. Otherwise, his peers will always be skeptical and would never want to play with him - especially if they think Magnus has compelling evidence, but Hans is preventing him from sharing it. Hans needs to deter any conjectures that the opposing side has real dirt on him and be open to an open discussion. The whole point of open discussion/dialogue is so that reasonable people can weed out bad information. If Hans is successful in all of this, he will at least turn Magnus into an asshole and some organizers/players may boycott Magnus and side with Hans. But if he remains silent, then people will assume, just as Hans once tweeted himself: the silence speaks for itself.

Don’t kid yourself: Thinking is hard. You can see this in grand master chess players, whose heart rates triple to cantering under their shirts. What separates champion Magnus Carlsen is his lethal stillness, a supremely thoughtful chill under pressure, which makes his recent behavior more startling. Basically, what Carlsen has done to chess is the equivalent of upending the board and scattering the pieces. Carlsen never gets upset — so he must be pretty upset. What’s upset him is the possibility that Hans Niemann, a 19-year-old American, may have infiltrated the undefended world of table chess to beat him with a machine. Unless he’s just upset that Niemann beat him. Carlsen’s explicit accusation Monday that Niemann cheated in a match by relying on artificial intelligence to help select his next moves — an allegation Niemann denies — has plunged chess into smirky speculations of devices hidden in cavities. The ability to receive such computer-generated advice through hidden signals is also an “existential threat,” as Carlsen says, to an old-world culture in which competitors have played on trust without checking what’s up each other’s shirt sleeves or pants legs. “The chess world has been pretty blasé and pretty relaxed in terms of taking the possibility of cheating seriously,” says American grandmaster and Twitch star Hikaru Nakamura, who for years played in tournaments where competitors simply hung up their jackets before sitting at a table, or were barely wanded. “ … Magnus has said something along the lines of, he’s not doing this for himself. It’s part of a bigger question, a bigger situation.” Chess makes for strange bedfellow-fanatics. Amari Cooper of the Cleveland Browns is a chess addict and so was the filmmaker-auteur Stanley Kubrick. Asked once why he found the game so entrancing, Kubrick answered, “It trains you to think before grabbing.” Cooper loves chess for the same reason. All athletic actions are essentially micro-decisions, and even the fleetest and most impulsive seeming NFL receiver must make feints, counter-feints, and judgments. Magnus Carlsen resigns from match after one move as chess storm intensifies Anyone who questions whether strategic thought requires an athletic-like stamina should consider the physical toll on chess players, who can drop 10 pounds or more in a tournament with their metabolic burn rates. In 1984, according to an ESPN story, Anatoly Karpov lost 22 pounds during his World Championship siege with Garry Kasparov. A pair of American physiology researchers, Leroy DuBeck and Charlotte Leedy, were the first to wire tournament chess players with a variety of sensors to verify the relationship between thought and action. The sensors showed that breath rates soared. Adrenaline surged. Pulses galloped; muscles contracted. All while the players sat virtually unmoving. As Bobby Fischer once remarked. “Your chess deteriorates as your body does. You can’t separate body from mind.” In recent years the proliferation of livestreams, fit trackers and other tools have created almost a game within a game at modern chess tournaments. Rubbernecking audiences watch for clues of mental cracking and physical distress in the quirky, contemplative figures bowed over the boards. At the 2018 Isle of Man International tournament, fitness metrics projected on a large screen revealed that grandmaster Mikhail Antipov torched 560 calories sitting stock still for two hours. By way of comparison, the average person will burn just 100 calories running a mile on a treadmill. The champion at this game within a game has long been Carlsen, who is such a hard-training player that he famously visited the Norwegian Olympic center in 2017 to develop a physical regimen that would help him in the final stretches of five-hour matches. He does high intensity interval stints for 30-60 minutes on treadmills, hot yoga, and soccer, tennis, and basketball workouts. All of which brings us to Carlsen’s quarrel with Niemann, and why he is apparently so suspicious of him. Earlier this month, Niemann, a patently inferior player, beat Carlsen without breaking much of a sweat. Somehow, Niemann anticipated and swiftly blocked a tremendously obscure opening strategy by Carlsen. “I had the impression that he wasn’t tense or even fully concentrating on the game in critical positions,” Carlsen said in a statement released Monday. This provoked Carlsen to a rare histrionic: In a rematch with Niemann last week, he resigned after just one move and stalked away from the board — a gasp-inducing gesture of protest that earned a reprimand from the international chess governing body. But it also achieved Carlsen’s main goal, which was to subject Niemann’s playing patterns to close examination. The scrutiny forced Niemann to acknowledge he used computer assistance in online matches at chess.com when he was 12 and 16, for which he was banned. Niemann insists his recent rise in board chess has nevertheless been legitimate. Asked at the Baer Cup to explain some of his match play that seemed less than explicable, he replied, “I’m a very intuitive player.” That wasn’t good enough for Carlsen. “I believe that Niemann has cheated more — and more recently — than he has publicly admitted,” Carlsen charged in his statement on Twitter. Carlsen appears to have seized the banner on behalf of a group of grandmasters who believe that machine intelligence is outstripping those who play purely with their heads — and that it’s not being captured by current analytics or tournament organizers. Grandmaster Srinath Narayanan of India tweeted, “We all knew cheating was a serious problem. We all knew it was rampant. We all kept quiet, not knowing exactly how to go about it. Magnus spoke about it and in a way that the world had no option but to take notice.” The rare instances where someone has been caught indicate the possibilities: In 2015 chess officials discovered Arcangelo Ricciardi receiving signals in Morse code in his armpit. Why should you or me much care whether a 19-year-old chess prodigy used artificial intelligence or a signal to solve a board challenge? Because the Carlsen-Niemann confrontation raises the important matter of “techno-solutionism.” Too much machine intelligence in problem-solving, as it happens, can be more confusing — and weakening — than helpful. The long-term cost of techno-solutionism can be a fatal slackness, both mental and physical. You don’t want to lose your conditioning for decisive human judgment. Performing while sitting for five and six hours at a stretch is the most common office experience. We’re all familiar with the peculiar exhaustion that can come from that posture. It’s a tiredness that feels different from any other kind. That’s not your imagination. Clinical researchers have found that “decision fatigue” is a distinct form of expenditure, separable from the other physical or cognitive loads. It affects our behavior, and unaddressed it can result in reduced capacity for problem-solving, as the social psychologist Roy Baumeister and a team of fellow researchers demonstrated in a series of studies. In one, a group of collegians were asked to make product choices, on everything from whether they preferred pens or pencils. After making these small and not particularly important decisions, the choosers showed less physical-mental endurance than a peer group and less inclination to study for a test. World chess champion to give up title because he’s just ‘not motivated’ “Recommendation algorithms” can solve some problems, but they don’t always make us smarter or stronger. Not every probability deserves credence. Asked whether tech has been good or bad for chess, Nakamura said, “Wow that’s a good question. It depends on who you ask. For me, I’d definitely say that I really enjoyed learning the game without having this sort of second opinion, or superior opinion or, like, perfect opinion. I definitely liked not having computer programs which just knew the answer to everything. I think I’m in between. I think it’s been very good for pushing boundaries of our knowledge forward, but at the same time when you have these computers that are so much better than humans, and it’s possible to, in one move, gain an advantage and win a game it also is a problem.” The limits of algorithmic predictions are abundantly clear in the Niemann mess. Chess observers have tried to use them to evaluate Niemann’s play, only to fall into a morass of argument. One analysis finds that his play falls within an unsuspicious range while another finds his performances improbable. “At the end of the day when we’re talking about looking at the games, there are probably only a handful of people in the world who can say whether these moves look like they’re human, or not human,” Nakamura said. “There’s a limited pool of people who can have opinions that are legitimate. That also makes it very difficult. There’s really no agreement.” Carlsen has called for better methods of detection and added, “I hope that the truth on this matter comes out, whatever it may be.” But the chess world may discover that machine intelligence or tech engines don’t solve its new problems any more efficiently than an age-old human practice: the honor code, the development of conscience, which solves problems before they begin. As the Russian chess grandmaster Alexander Grischuck once remarked about the explosion of chess online and the proliferation of tools with which to cheat, ultimately, “Everything rests on decency.”

Chess.com fraudulently charging for annual membershipJust posting so people are aware of this fraudulent billing activity by chess.com I signed up for a free trial of their membership using their app. The free trial clearly said that it would last through Sept 27, so I had put a note on my calendar to cancel the trial last night to avoid being charged. Unfortunately, yesterday at 5:30pm PST, they billed me $120 for an annual membership. Put in a ticket with apple, so I should be able to get it refunded, but the fact that they are doing this is unethical. Proof: https://i.imgur.com/yQ3qAvJ.png

Here is the relevant section: **[Why is this move brilliant? Why was my brilliant move post removed?](https://www.reddit.com/r/chess/wiki/faq#wiki_why_is_this_move_brilliant.3F_why_was_my_brilliant_move_post_removed.3F)** We get a few people everyday trying to post [screenshots of brilliant moves](https://imgur.com/a/Z5dtGVl). We remove them because it breaks our "low-effort post" rule; the quantity of these posts means they would spam the subreddit significantly if they were not removed. However, because people often post these moves with the question "Why is this move brilliant", this is an attempt to provide a satisfactory explanation. In chess, "brilliant" has long been used to describe a move that knocks your opponent out of their chair: aesthetically beautiful or shocking, very difficult to spot, and backed up with deep concrete calculation. Of course, a move being aesthetically beautiful is very subjective. When chess.com uses an engine to analyze your game, it tries to identify moves that are "brilliant" in an objective way. It is not clear precisely what factors are used, but it has been suggested that it is given to moves when a deeper engine evaluation than the initial very fast analysis run by chess.com shows that a move made by the player gives a better evaluation than the one previously considered to be the "best move". Whatever definition is implemented by chess.com, it will often give "brilliant" to moves that are entirely forced, like [this one](https://i.imgur.com/Bx3rZIY.png) or [this one](https://i.imgur.com/ddpaysd.png) or normal looking moves that don't do anything special at all. The answer to "Why is this a brilliant move" in these cases is "It isn't". There is not a lot to discuss here; a computer program is trying to judge aesthetic value and sometimes gets it wrong. If you have more questions about a particular move, or brilliant moves in general, you are more than welcome to make text posts about them. However, screenshots of "brilliant" moves with no analysis, or posts that just ask why a particular move is "brilliant", will continue to be removed. A user has just created the new sub /r/brilliantchess in which those screenshots are welcome. You can read the full [rules of /r/chess here](https://www.reddit.com/r/chess/wiki/rules).

Don’t kid yourself: Thinking is hard. You can see this in grand master chess players, whose heart rates triple to cantering under their shirts. What separates champion Magnus Carlsen is his lethal stillness, a supremely thoughtful chill under pressure, which makes his recent behavior more startling. Basically, what Carlsen has done to chess is the equivalent of upending the board and scattering the pieces. Carlsen never gets upset — so he must be pretty upset. What’s upset him is the possibility that Hans Niemann, a 19-year-old American, may have infiltrated the undefended world of table chess to beat him with a machine. Unless he’s just upset that Niemann beat him. Carlsen’s explicit accusation Monday that Niemann cheated in a match by relying on artificial intelligence to help select his next moves — an allegation Niemann denies — has plunged chess into smirky speculations of devices hidden in cavities. The ability to receive such computer-generated advice through hidden signals is also an “existential threat,” as Carlsen says, to an old-world culture in which competitors have played on trust without checking what’s up each other’s shirt sleeves or pants legs. “The chess world has been pretty blasé and pretty relaxed in terms of taking the possibility of cheating seriously,” says American grandmaster and Twitch star Hikaru Nakamura, who for years played in tournaments where competitors simply hung up their jackets before sitting at a table, or were barely wanded. “ … Magnus has said something along the lines of, he’s not doing this for himself. It’s part of a bigger question, a bigger situation.” Chess makes for strange bedfellow-fanatics. Amari Cooper of the Cleveland Browns is a chess addict and so was the filmmaker-auteur Stanley Kubrick. Asked once why he found the game so entrancing, Kubrick answered, “It trains you to think before grabbing.” Cooper loves chess for the same reason. All athletic actions are essentially micro-decisions, and even the fleetest and most impulsive seeming NFL receiver must make feints, counter-feints, and judgments. Magnus Carlsen resigns from match after one move as chess storm intensifies Anyone who questions whether strategic thought requires an athletic-like stamina should consider the physical toll on chess players, who can drop 10 pounds or more in a tournament with their metabolic burn rates. In 1984, according to an ESPN story, Anatoly Karpov lost 22 pounds during his World Championship siege with Garry Kasparov. A pair of American physiology researchers, Leroy DuBeck and Charlotte Leedy, were the first to wire tournament chess players with a variety of sensors to verify the relationship between thought and action. The sensors showed that breath rates soared. Adrenaline surged. Pulses galloped; muscles contracted. All while the players sat virtually unmoving. As Bobby Fischer once remarked. “Your chess deteriorates as your body does. You can’t separate body from mind.” In recent years the proliferation of livestreams, fit trackers and other tools have created almost a game within a game at modern chess tournaments. Rubbernecking audiences watch for clues of mental cracking and physical distress in the quirky, contemplative figures bowed over the boards. At the 2018 Isle of Man International tournament, fitness metrics projected on a large screen revealed that grandmaster Mikhail Antipov torched 560 calories sitting stock still for two hours. By way of comparison, the average person will burn just 100 calories running a mile on a treadmill. The champion at this game within a game has long been Carlsen, who is such a hard-training player that he famously visited the Norwegian Olympic center in 2017 to develop a physical regimen that would help him in the final stretches of five-hour matches. He does high intensity interval stints for 30-60 minutes on treadmills, hot yoga, and soccer, tennis, and basketball workouts. All of which brings us to Carlsen’s quarrel with Niemann, and why he is apparently so suspicious of him. Earlier this month, Niemann, a patently inferior player, beat Carlsen without breaking much of a sweat. Somehow, Niemann anticipated and swiftly blocked a tremendously obscure opening strategy by Carlsen. “I had the impression that he wasn’t tense or even fully concentrating on the game in critical positions,” Carlsen said in a statement released Monday. This provoked Carlsen to a rare histrionic: In a rematch with Niemann last week, he resigned after just one move and stalked away from the board — a gasp-inducing gesture of protest that earned a reprimand from the international chess governing body. But it also achieved Carlsen’s main goal, which was to subject Niemann’s playing patterns to close examination. The scrutiny forced Niemann to acknowledge he used computer assistance in online matches at chess.com when he was 12 and 16, for which he was banned. Niemann insists his recent rise in board chess has nevertheless been legitimate. Asked at the Baer Cup to explain some of his match play that seemed less than explicable, he replied, “I’m a very intuitive player.” That wasn’t good enough for Carlsen. “I believe that Niemann has cheated more — and more recently — than he has publicly admitted,” Carlsen charged in his statement on Twitter. Carlsen appears to have seized the banner on behalf of a group of grandmasters who believe that machine intelligence is outstripping those who play purely with their heads — and that it’s not being captured by current analytics or tournament organizers. Grandmaster Srinath Narayanan of India tweeted, “We all knew cheating was a serious problem. We all knew it was rampant. We all kept quiet, not knowing exactly how to go about it. Magnus spoke about it and in a way that the world had no option but to take notice.” The rare instances where someone has been caught indicate the possibilities: In 2015 chess officials discovered Arcangelo Ricciardi receiving signals in Morse code in his armpit. Why should you or me much care whether a 19-year-old chess prodigy used artificial intelligence or a signal to solve a board challenge? Because the Carlsen-Niemann confrontation raises the important matter of “techno-solutionism.” Too much machine intelligence in problem-solving, as it happens, can be more confusing — and weakening — than helpful. The long-term cost of techno-solutionism can be a fatal slackness, both mental and physical. You don’t want to lose your conditioning for decisive human judgment. Performing while sitting for five and six hours at a stretch is the most common office experience. We’re all familiar with the peculiar exhaustion that can come from that posture. It’s a tiredness that feels different from any other kind. That’s not your imagination. Clinical researchers have found that “decision fatigue” is a distinct form of expenditure, separable from the other physical or cognitive loads. It affects our behavior, and unaddressed it can result in reduced capacity for problem-solving, as the social psychologist Roy Baumeister and a team of fellow researchers demonstrated in a series of studies. In one, a group of collegians were asked to make product choices, on everything from whether they preferred pens or pencils. After making these small and not particularly important decisions, the choosers showed less physical-mental endurance than a peer group and less inclination to study for a test. World chess champion to give up title because he’s just ‘not motivated’ “Recommendation algorithms” can solve some problems, but they don’t always make us smarter or stronger. Not every probability deserves credence. Asked whether tech has been good or bad for chess, Nakamura said, “Wow that’s a good question. It depends on who you ask. For me, I’d definitely say that I really enjoyed learning the game without having this sort of second opinion, or superior opinion or, like, perfect opinion. I definitely liked not having computer programs which just knew the answer to everything. I think I’m in between. I think it’s been very good for pushing boundaries of our knowledge forward, but at the same time when you have these computers that are so much better than humans, and it’s possible to, in one move, gain an advantage and win a game it also is a problem.” The limits of algorithmic predictions are abundantly clear in the Niemann mess. Chess observers have tried to use them to evaluate Niemann’s play, only to fall into a morass of argument. One analysis finds that his play falls within an unsuspicious range while another finds his performances improbable. “At the end of the day when we’re talking about looking at the games, there are probably only a handful of people in the world who can say whether these moves look like they’re human, or not human,” Nakamura said. “There’s a limited pool of people who can have opinions that are legitimate. That also makes it very difficult. There’s really no agreement.” Carlsen has called for better methods of detection and added, “I hope that the truth on this matter comes out, whatever it may be.” But the chess world may discover that machine intelligence or tech engines don’t solve its new problems any more efficiently than an age-old human practice: the honor code, the development of conscience, which solves problems before they begin. As the Russian chess grandmaster Alexander Grischuck once remarked about the explosion of chess online and the proliferation of tools with which to cheat, ultimately, “Everything rests on decency.”

If this is not a proof, I literally don’t know what is…The next tweet: “ One has to keep in mind that Carlsen won nearly every tournament he played in this period of time. He is the best player by quite some margin. This numbers say: Either Niemann is capable of playing much better games than Carlsen on a regular basis or he is cheating. “

Carlsen lost to a player 200 points lower rated than him and his ego couldn't handle it. It's as simple as that. None of the other players you mentioned have a problem playing Hans. And Hans being a cheating scumbag or not being a cheating scumbag (still no evidence of OTB cheating btw) has zero relevance to Carlsen's behavior, which is the behavior of a sore loser and a spoiled brat. Perhaps I have a different perspective than most. I'm a private person who prefers to stay out of the limelight, and I recognize Carlsen's attention-craving behavior for what it is. It's despicable. edit: made it slightly less incendiary

Whoa you're being really unfair to this street hustler. I mean sure, yesterday he was doing 3 card monte and I watched him palm a card and then confronted him about it and he said "yeah but it was the first time ive ever done it" so thats good enough for me. Then I watched him do it again and I was like "Hey man, i thought you said you didnt do that" and he said "Woops you got me, ok it was just these 2 times" and then did it again. But... Without proof there is *literally* no reason to think he might be being dishonest. Statistically 1 in 10,000 people will get 50 rolls in a row so you literally **must** play that game with him or you are being a huge crybaby and ruining dice games for the whole world. Edit: obviously this is hyperbole, thought I'd clarify before some rabid Hans defense 'but that's not a perfect analogy therefore Magnus deserves to have pipi spanked by Hans'. I can only read the same 3 replies about 'no proof OTB therefore everything else is irrelevant' before I feel the need to express incredulity with hyperbole

Can someone ELI5 how is it possible to cheat in a live, in-person chess tournament? Like I keep reading about this drama and everyone's taking it seriously, yet when I try to find out about the method the dude might've used it's all memes and jokes like vibrating anal beads. How would someone actually cheat in a live in-person chess match?

Why do people have this weird impression that Reddit gets to see the evidence in this case? You're assuming there's no evidence based on what? The idea that as soon as someone has evidence the first thing they'll do is run to tell kids online? Each side has made very clear that there is an ongoing case and investigation, reading and critical thinking skills are lower than the average elo around here lately

I wonder what's the over/under he wins. Can we bet on his correlation to computer moves? I'll bet a few hundred it's 100% correlation. He's that good. Hans is a computer.

You are so stupidly incorrect. Women players today are not affected by the problems of women players 100 years ago, and you’re a moron if you believe otherwise. All that leaves is your spiteful bs about not letting men and women play together, because you and I know that even with the same training, as has been shown time and time again, women are plain worse players.

Exactly. And depending on where you place it, your anus or your shoes, you simply query it by updating your position with a series of anal squeezes or toe/foot movements, and it answers with subtle vibrations.

It's worth noting that at least as far as I can tell, the main GMs strongly pushing the cheating narrative (apart from Magnus) also run YouTube channels and make a living partly off views. They clearly have self-interested reasons for continuing to push this sensationalist narrative. I still have yet to hear a coherent and believable narrative regarding how Hans could cheat over the board. Like people are literally saying he used vibrating anal beads... Apart from being totally ridiculous, how would that even work? Like Hans taught his prostate to understand morse code?

As almost all future Super GMs experience a rapid rating rise ( often a make or break period) once they’ve gotten a foothold around the 2250 and taken their game to the next level. This rapid ratings tear-up usually happens between 3-8, as they destroy average IMs/GMs on their way to global dominance \*ahem\* I mean full time professional career. Is Hans Niemanns rating rise really that much of an outlier? &#x200B; Well, he spent a longer time than most other Super Gms did at the 2200 elo (although he was also very young) even when compared to other rookies he’s spent more time at the 2200 elo. His rapid rating rise from 2250-2450,isn’t unusual (for a Super Gm), its honestly very common, as you can see from the graph lots of others have cut through this elo very quickly on their way to official GM status. What makes Han’s rating rise actually unusual, is that heal so had a huge tear through 2450-2650 elo level, to which we’ve only seen from a handful of Super GMs (like Magnus, Anish, Alireza, or possibly Dubov etc). It's also unusual for future Super GMs to stagnate so long around the 2450 elo as Hans did… as they usually at least experience steady gains (Like Nepo, Rapport, Radoslaw etc). This could be considered a really weird rise if it wasn’t for one big caveat… A global pandemic. &#x200B; None of these other Super GMs have had to play during their rapid rise period with an ongoing pandemic that essentially postponed or cancelled most rated fide events. Even if Prag (54-72) or Hans (33-48) wanted to gain rating points during that 15-18 month stretch… They couldn’t… there was no big events with high elo opponents to play in. In fact, Hans even was losing points playing in what events he could play in as despite scoring well like a6.5/9, he’d lose rating points playing with a field of low elo opponents. Just because the world shut down, doesn’t mean chess players stop studying, stop playing, stop making gains. It is “Insane” to be able to gain 200 rating points at the 2450 level in just 20ish months, but if you put a big asterisk that a person basically spent 16 months studying and playing unrated instead… 36 months is not such an “Insane” period to spend at the 2450-2650 stage but rather average when compared to the insanity that it takes to be a Super GM.

Didn’t even finish the stream. Hans has like 8 games with 100% accuracy. One at 38 moves and one with 45 moves. As Hikaru states, these aren’t 10 move blowouts where you see most GMs get their 100% accuracy or even 90% accuracy games. Some GMs go their entire career being very successful and never get 100% accuracy. Hans doing it several times in OTB is ridiculous.

Magnus was sure that only a cheater could beat him that game, but can’t say how he knows, because:Magnus was also cheating. Modern chess is not about playing an inaccuracy to generate an unfamiliar attack. It’s about finding where to deviate from the engine moves to seem human and stay winning. The game is so easy for dedicated professionals to cheat, including OTB, that the top spot cannot possibly be occupied by anyone but a cheater. At the top levels, everyone is cheating. This is obvious to anyone who has played a cheatable game. Those who believe that professional chess players don’t cheat are the same who believe that Mr. Olympia contestants are natty. A positive, but naive and childish view. From Olympic sports to Rust, the players at the top are cheating. It’s why they’re on top. For Carlsen - Neimann, Hans rode the line too close to the engine side. Magnus couldn’t win unless he played obviously inhuman moves. Professional human chess is done, and that game was its funeral, long overdue. Chess is for engine competition, and human enjoyment.

Honestly, anal beads are a 100% completely plausible method for cheating. Lets put it into perspective - Hans won $20,000 USD when he won the world open. I'd insert anal beads and keep them there for 10 hours/day if it means I'd take home $20,000 at the end of the week. They don't even have to be big beads, they just have to vibrate. Anal marbles wouldn't be so bad, maybe?

You completely missed the point. I italicized it on purpose. Let me spell it out for you. An analyst certainly can be sued for their analysis/assessment, especially if the analysis is based on circumstantial evidence. As I said, Magnus's *expert opinion* holds a lot of weight, and if he's just a hair off about something, he exposes himself to a lawsuit. He's not allowed to be publicly wrong in this case, even if it's in good faith. Maybe stop projecting your law ignorance onto me.

I love folks like you. You discount an expert opinion (which is evidence) on a player's performance from some of the world's foremost *experts* on chess (whose ethics have been unimpeachable), and in the same breath give maximum benefit of the doubt to a known cheater. Unfortunately, for folks like you, expert opinions hold a lot of weight... At least more than a known cheater who's made dishonest statements about their cheating.

People like you are just stupid, sorry to say. The main crime is him being a past cheater and people wanting him to be punished for that. You can make an argument that he shouldn't be punished for past actions, but you can't say, "Magnus needs to present evidence that Hans cheated against him at the Sinquefield cup". He doesn't need to prove that to not want to play against him or to claim, in general, that he thinks Hans has cheated in the past. That is a matter of fact. He cheated, and [chess.com](https://chess.com) has said he has cheated way more than he admitted. For me this is enough. The dude is a serial cheater and needs to be ostracized from the game. Period.

You can bet on chess games and tournaments. You would make more money cheating and match fixing the game to get favorable bet outcomes. A cheater getting caught means you just groom another cheater. Punish anyone that speaks out against you.This is easy. Find out who was betting against Carlsen. See what kind of connection they have. You can check and see previous bets to see if there's an anomaly in the number and size of bets against Carlsen. This has happened in every major sport and many have killed in order to preserve the status quo [(Sumo Wrestling)](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Match-fixing_in_professional_sumo). People are being very careful about what they're saying because they'll become a target. Carlsen can speak out because his chess credentials have been long established. If anything happens to him, it would be fairly obvious at that point that there is match fixing and cheating going on. You could actually do a statistical analysis of every game and compare on their elo and centipawn loss in each game compared to their general average and match opponent. This can be done really easily with [Chess.com](https://Chess.com), lichess, and every tournament. Find someone who has no chess connection who is capable of leading a team that can analyze that kind of data. 538 would be great example.

A perspective on why people calling Magnus' accusations a mere "gut feeling" may be underselling his reasons for suspicion.As we all know, Magnus was okay with Hans while at Miami as we've seen that now famous photo of them playing at the beach. Apparently this wasn't merely a promotional shot taken that day and Magnus did play two games vs Hans. Anish Giri went over the games from memory in a youtube video and after giving his best recollection of the first 15 or so moves and says that Magnus crushed Hans in both games from that point and that Magnus was playing black both times. Something every chess player that isn't a beginner is capable of is assessing the level of their opponent - granted the opponent is not as good, about the same level, or slightly better. What I mean is that if I play against a 2200 player or a 2800 player, I won't be able to tell you how good each are relative to one another. From my perspective they are just people that can toy with me. So I can distinguish between all the levels below me and rank them all the way up to someone that is better me to a point. This means Magnus can determine the level of everyone in the world. So everyone that plays, beginners aside, can assess levels - and if a player that was falling for traps that someone of your level will recognize in an instant is able to outplay you within a couple weeks - it's just not possible and good vs bad days can only account for so much. I don't know how many opportunities Magnus has had to assess Hans' performance and level before Sinquefield, but it's clear he felt he wasn't playing the same person as he had assessed in previous recent occasions. So just this alone I believe could account for the greatest amount of suspicion. On top of that he loses while playing white, purposely introduced a very obscure line which Hans was able to handle only to go on and explain the miracle of going over this line that morning and the fact that Hans fails to explain his moves versus other potentially good moves when interviewed. I think this may be a lot of smoke to ignore and besides all the analysis that's going on we should pay attention to Magnus saying that Hans was able to outplay him in a way that "only a handful of players can do." I think he is saying from previous assessments of Hans that he is certainly not one of those handful, or wasn't a short period before Sinquefield.

The conundrum around age is a good example of the [sorites paradox](https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/sorites-paradox/). At what age does cheating become inexcusable? There simply isn't a way to logic yourself to an answer that isn't arbitrary. And then there's still the question of what type/severity of punishment is correct. Also, chess.com is a separate entity from fide, so banning him from fide tournaments is nothing but the blood-hungry desire of bored sociopaths. The only evidence of him cheating OTB is akin to saying that [a red apple is evidence that all ravens are black](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raven_paradox); Perhaps, but only in a negligible sense.

I had never noticed that r/chess was so overran by US fans with a very strong sense of national pride, but it has become incredibly obvious during this cheating scandal. Solid posts that critically analyze a six tournament stretch during which Niemann played at the level of Carlsen's and Kasparov's peak are getting downvoted to below 50% because it's "cherrypicked" while posts attacking Carlsen for "not providing concrete evidence" against a proven cheater are receiving thousands of upvotes. Every post that might be interpreted as supporting Magnus' argument is immediately being downvoted. They attack the 5x World Champion as if he hasn't build up credibility over the past 15 years. I expect a lot of people are going to end up looking really bad when all is said and done.

@ty-johannes: I analyzed every classical game of Magnus Carlsen since January 2020 with the famous chessbase tool. Two 100 % games, two other games above 90 %. It is an immense difference between Niemann and MC. Niemann has ten games with 100 % and another 23 games above 90 % in the same time.

Those are game based, not move based. I assume games to be relatively independent (they are not exactly of course, like when a player is in bad form for instance). Or at least from my comprehension, the statistics come from the gambitman data which are game based.

Yosha's Video on Hans' Games is Not Incriminating Evidencetldr; 100% match rates can be artificially increased and do not correspond to accuracy, Hans' overall match% isn't even unusual (65%), and the ROI probability calculation is done incorrectly. \-- First: the 100% match thing. This is the evidence of most interest. When it comes to analyzing games, different people run different engines to analyze them, and those apparently get saved on chessbase. This means that some games can have many engines run on them, and in the case of these games by Hans, well over 10, often over 20 were run. What a 100% correlation means is that, for each move played in the game, \*at least one of the engines run on the game\* suggested the move. It doesn't matter if a move is considered a blunder by 19 engines and suggested by 1 of them -- as long as one engine suggests it, it's counted as a match. For example, look at the Cornette game, specifically at the grey text under each of Hans’ moves. Hans’ 7th move was suggested by Stockfish 15. 9th by SF 11. 11th by… “New Engine”? 12th by Fritz 16. 13th by SF 7. 17th by SF 10. 25th by Komodo 14. Of course, some of these moves were suggested by several of these engines, but the point is that many of them were not. Every engine didn’t prefer at least one of Hans’ moves in this game, but since other engines did prefer those moves, the match% stayed at 100. What this means is, for one, running more engines on a game will usually increase its match%. This is important because it shows how bad of a metric the engine correlation is for detecting cheating -- I could theoretically go on chessbase and start running something like the first version of Stockfish on games just to boost their match%. I could probably run a few more engines on, say, Hikaru's high match% games to make them 100% matching too -- that's how this metric works, and it's not helpful. For two, this means engines that didn't even exist at the time of the game can boost the match%. For example, many of Hans' games' match% were boosted by Stockfish 15, which was published 2 years after some of those games. Using it to suggest he played like the engine doesn't make sense. Without engines developed in the future being run on the games, I believe some of them would not have a 100% match. For three, this means engine correlation =/= accuracy. If a bad move is suggested by a bad engine, it counts as a match, but it's still a bad move. Hans' games in this video aren't 100% accurate. The accuracies for these games by current top engine analysis are, in order: 94%, 91%, 95%, 96%, 96%, 96%, 95%, 98%, 94%, 95%. Since these games were specifically chosen because they're good games by him, those numbers make sense. Older engines also do not show these as being perfect games either, but there's too many of them to put here. You can always run them on the games yourself to confirm if you want. \_\*None of these games were played 100% according to any one engine.\*\_ \-- Second, the match% overall. If you average out the match% of Hans' tournaments on the spreadsheet, it comes out to 65%. This is dead center of the superGM range Yosha provided. I've heard a lot of talk about Hans' match% being better than Fischer's or Carlsen's, but I can't figure out where it came from -- it's just incorrect. And just to add on, again, these comparisons to other GM's match%s are flawed. Most of Hans' games had far more engines run on them than most of the other GMs', so they going to probably have a higher match% due to this. It's not an even comparison. \-- Third, the ROI math probability. Yosha has already admitted this is wrong, but I might as well try to explain why. Look at the 6 tournament streak on the bottom right in the video. Notice that every extra game played brings the likelihood down -- every new value multiplies the odds by something less than 1, which lowers it. For example, if Hans played another tournament at 50 ROI (completely normal) and that was added to the calculation, the final odds would go down from 0.001% to 0.0005%. If that happened again, 0.00025%. The problem here is it's calculating the odds of Hans scoring those values in that \*exact\* order. It's like if you flipped a coin 10 times, and got HTTHHHTHTT, noticed that the odds of landing on each side were 1/2, and said "Wow, that had a 1/1024 chance of happening!" since technically getting HTTHHHTHTT does have odds of 1/(2\^10) = 0.1%. You wouldn't be wrong, but when we're looking for unusual proportions (as we are for Hans -- unusual proportions of high ROIs), that result is no different from HTHTHTHTHT, or HHHHHTTTTT, or TTHTHTTHHH. What you need to focus on the frequency, \*not the order,\* of H and T. In this case they are equal, which has a 24.6% chance of happening, not 0.1% -- it's not that unusual. Likewise, for the Hans tournaments, you can't just look at the odds he got 57.9, 55.5, 55.6, 55, 54.6, and 50.6 in that exact order, you have to just focus on the odds that he got those numbers at all. Going 57.9 -> 55.5 -> 55.6 -> 55 -> 54.6 -> 50.6 shouldn't be treated any differently than 57.9 -> 55.5 -> 55.6 -> 55 -> 50.6 -> 54.6, for example, and that is where this math fails.

Data visualization for Niemann's gamesThere's a text file from Ken Regan's analysis floating around[1], and it's just a .tsv so I visualized it for easier consumption: https://imgur.com/a/PdR2ZSY This shows a distribution of Niemann's ROIs from several tournaments. I like to think I know a thing or two about statistics, so I was a little confused about what an "ROI" is (presumably not "return on investment"). Apparently, ROI stands for "Raw Outlier Index", which seems to be something that only Ken Regan uses, and he hasn't published how he comes up with it (or at least I couldn't find it after looking for ~10 minutes). There's just some handwaving about outliers, and then he points you to the guide on how to read it (50 is expected, 60 is suspicious, 70 is likely cheating). Either way, if you trust his methodology for coming up with the ROI (whatever that methodology is), the distribution above for Niemann looks pretty bimodal (two big bumps on the distribution instead of one big bump). The situation where he cheats sometimes and does not cheat in other situations could lead to a bimodal distribution. To be blatantly clear: This looks like evidence against Niemann. I'm also not sure why so many of his games are centered around 46. Maybe because the expected value is 50 and the spike around 55 shifts everything down? And another question: are _any_ games going to look like outliers if he's cheating all the time? I wish Regan would be more transparent about his secret sauce for calculating ROI.

The thing is that nobody has called for Niemann to be *banned* (aside from a few people for the past online cheating). So I don't know why we'd need to meet legal standards for proof. Magnus argument is essentially that: "This guy is obviously cheating and you guys aren't catching him, yet keep inviting him to tournaments. I'm not bothering with that shit until your cheating protections stop being trash at least." Why does he have to catch Niemann red-handed (which we know is never gonna happen) to make a judgment call? Why should he have to deal with likely cheating just because tournament orgs can't be bothered to check Niemann's anus? I've seen so many opinions from players about how cheating as an issue is just completely ignored.

US legal standards as applied to the current controversyThis is not a legal case in any sense, but people are already applying a variety of legal terminology to it, and given that how it's treated by chess authorities will determine whether a player's career is destroyed or not, it feels somewhat appropriate to apply the same levels of scrutiny to the accusations you might apply to a legal case. I thought I'd chip in with some insight into how courts might handle some of the evidence being thrown around. **"Hans Niemann cheated on prior occasions, and therefore the burden to prove he cheated here is lower.":** This is the most common claim I see, and interestingly enough it would probably be completely inadmissible in a court in the first place. Rule 404(b) of the US Federal Rules of Evidence outlines how character evidence can be used in criminal proceedings. Essentially, you **cannot** use evidence of a prior crime, wrong, or other act to prove that a defendant acted in conformity therewith on a later occasion. You **could** introduce evidence of Hans' prior cheating to suggest that he knows how to cheat, or that he's capable of executing a cheating scheme, but considering the difference in circumstances (OTB v online cheating), I don't see how that usage could ever be all that relevant. **"Magnus can't come forward with the facts without Hans' permission because he could be sued for defamation.":** This one's interesting, because it demonstrates the degree to which Magnus believes his evidence is convincing. To prove defamation, an incredibly difficult task in the States, one must demonstrate four things: 1) the defendant made a false statement purporting to be fact; 2) the statement was published to a third party; 3) there was fault amounting at least to negligence; 4) harm was caused to the reputation of the plaintiff. 2) and 4) are absolute gimmes, nobody would ever contend that they're not met. However, 1) and 3) are much more interesting. Hans could obviously only sue for defamation if Magnus can't prove his accusations, but even if Magnus was lying, Hans would have to prove that Magnus acted with fault amounting at least to negligence. Legal precedent suggests that this would essentially entail Magnus **knowing** his accusations were absolutely baseless and going through with them anyway with reckless disregard for the consequences. What does this tell us? It's very likely that there isn't any further smoking gun about to emerge. Magnus thinks Hans cheated because 1) he cheated before, 2) he looked cool as a cucumber in a very stressful part of a game, and 3) he beat the WCC with the black pieces. That's probably the extent of it. &#x200B; The court of public opinion is very different from a court of law. Everyone's entitled to their opinion over whether Hans is a cheater or not. But the low standards and frivolity of the court of public opinion should not be used to destroy someone's career, and the idea that the accusations would fall completely flat in a legal setting, including the most potent accusations being completely inadmissible as baseless character evidence, suggest to me that someone's career and reputation should not be ruined as a result.

How easily can you detect if your online opponent is a human being or an engine?I'm new to chess and saw this whole controversy about Magnus and Hans. What exactly gives it away that your opponent is not human? If it's extremely precise moves, why can't we 'dial down' the precision level to a more human level?

Comparing Chess and Sprinting: Why Carlsen's statement makes no senseHear me out—I think you'd be surprised by the parallels here. Cheating by doping is really common in track. Half of the field probably does it and it's pretty much undetectable as long as you're careful. However, you already need to be at the top of your field for it to be effective—it won't bring down your 100m time from 15 seconds to 9.8 seconds. There have been plenty of famous sprinters that got exposed and had their medals stripped. Unless the offense was really egregious, they usually didn't receive lifetime bans (the ones that did were usually allowed back after a few years). Now imagine if Usain Bolt, easily the best to ever do it, came out and said that he refused to run any race that included another sprinter (let's call him Tyson). Bolt has no direct proof that Tyson cheated—rather, he comes to this conclusion based on his “intuition” as the fastest man ever and current champion. However, Tyson did dope in high school. Event organizers would obviously choose to bring in Bolt as that brings in viewers and $$ over a young star. If Usain Bolt, in his prime, refused to run in any race against a young sprinter that was rapidly improving, I think he would (rightfully) be ridiculed. In fact, the scenario seems so ridiculous that I can't even see it happening. And if you translate it over to chess, it seems that Carlsen is using nothing but his “intuition” and previous history of cheating to justify blacklisting Hans. Although intuition and a history of cheating are more than enough to suspect cheating, it hardly seems that the right approach is to use your clout and status to get something done. Regardless of whether Carlsen is right or not, it sets a dangerous precedent where your status in the chess world is enough to blacklist another player. There are proper channels to this type of stuff done—and if you believe that those systems are ineffective, you better have solid evidence before you start accusing.

If there weren't methods to detect cheating before, I bet you anything there are now.I hope I don't lose every other biased person within my first sentences, but here I go. Try as hard as you might to separate Hans from past cheating, what we know for sure, happened 2 years ago, he's since been accused of even more recent and rampant cheating but has since stayed silent. Making those allegations an elephant in the room, especially when he had been quickly clapping back at every other comment and has now seemingly forbade anyone else from commenting on it. Most importantly, in my opinion, is perhaps [chess.com](https://chess.com) which might be able to shed some light on how to catch cheaters. Everyone tries to equate this to a star in the prime sensing the new young talent coming to dethrone them and trying everything in his might to squash them down. I see how it makes Hans look like such an underdog in that version of the story, but Magnus has shown every other young prodigy respect and admiration, especially in tough draws/losses. Just look at how he handled Pragg in the recent tournament. If anything, I think the severity of his reaction (and perhaps the emotional blunders handling it) shows how much this means to him, especially if he's willing to stake his reputation on it. They say it takes 20 years to build a reputation, and 5 minutes to lose it. One of them will probably never recover from this, and everyone has been picking sides for weeks. I for one, hope that someone like Hans, who was given a second chance, was actually using it to become better. But I think we know how all too easy it is to fall into old habits. Many GMs have said that they admire the stand Magnus is making towards cheating in chess, and I foresee many people being caught in this wave, if not Hans himself. Some say that there are no reliable methods to detect cheating, but I simply see it as a problem yet to be solved. The entire world and their brightest minds have been focused on this drama, and if there were no ways to detect cheating, I bet you anything, there are now.

A cheating method for playing naked chessJoking aside, after reading a lot of potential ideas for cheating OTB, I've only seen one mention ([here](https://www.reddit.com/r/chess/comments/xl89mf/possible_techniques_for_cheating_in_highlevel_otb/)) with lasers that weren't expanded too much on. Here's my pitch on how to avoid metal detection and the evidence can be quickly disposed of. (or being naked if you insist.) I believe the idea of shining a laser on a wall is quite feasible. Using a long-distance infrared laser with infrared contact lenses will prevent anyone from seeing the signal. Forget morse codes, the signal could stay on the wall, and one needs only to glance at it for a moment, and you can get spoon-fed all the information. In the case where someone notices it, go to the toilet and flush the contacts, and no one would be able to accuse you. Ensuring a delay on both the internet and offline would prevent such a cheat from occurring.

Did Hans Niemann Cheat Against Magnus Carlsen? Statement Analysis
September 27, 2022 12:19:18
removelink:
remove (mod:
city-of-stars

The other perspective: The cheater gets away with cheatingI think that now Carlsen has given his statement. A lot of people have come out with support for Hans. This say it is unfair that the World Chess champion is using his power and prestige to punish a 19 year without hard evidence. However, I just want to present a different picture. Say for instance Hans did cheat and now he has just beaten the World champion. Carlsen doesn’t bring up an issue and now Hans becomes an instant celebrity. He is invited to best tournaments, gets a lot of sponsors and makes a lot of money. Carlsen not wanting to disrupt the community chooses to do nothing and his legacy is over. Instead he sees cheating is not only unfair to him, but also the integrity of the whole sport and willing to stake everything to uphold the game. Because if one known cheater can beat him without being punished then soon everyone will be cheating and then there is no point to playing chess anymore. People say Magnus is doing this out of spite. But he probably believes he is fighting for the very fabric of the game. While some could argue there are better ways Magnus could have conducted himself such as refusing to play Hans and withdrawing himself from playing him. I believe he also wants to deter future people from cheating as well and he is willing to stake his legacy as one the best who has ever played chess on the line for a game he has dedicated his life too Edit: spelling

I was responding to the statement " cheated multiple times" which includes when he was 13. Sorry, but that is really creepy. This keeps going, someone is gonna check out every top player from when they were born. The anti Hans people are posting a LOT of stuff that is turning people towards Hans. Magnus claiming that anyone who isn't crapping their pants when they say him must be cheating is pretty lame. " All my opponents choke and this guy didn't. I lost. He must be cheating. I , and others , have noted at least 7 other players near the top who have similar things to be suspicious of. Are they gonna investigate and stop cheating or just get one guy. Has anyone checked Magnus for anal vibrators? Because HE is incredibly error free. Lol!

It's more of a vibrating anal bead kinda thing. Its got 8 beads which corresponds with the board. Instead of training and learning chess. He's mastered honing in on which bead vibrates. It's why he looks uncomfortable at times while playing. He's not thinking about the next move. He's honing in on the beads. Which is of course attached to WiFi contact lenses that transmit directly to his anus. It's pretty obvious what is going on, and he's just a freak.

Magnus the whiny baby?I'm not a chess guy or a lawyer ... just a guy that uses logic. If Carlson has evidence of cheating ... why not just release it? Why does he need to have to be so cryptic? If it's just a hunch he has, shouldn't he just play on, say nothing until he has evidence? Why can't this just be a case of the champ losing and being frustrated?

Maybe this cheating drama is what was needed to finally reduce support for classical chessAs we know it’s much harder to for players to cheat when being forced to blitz out moves. If I had to guess, Magnus would be much more open to playing Hans in rapid/blitz/bullet. In any case, maybe anal beads will be the downfall of classical chess…

I'm from r/all but I wanted to share my awful theory on the Magnus/Niemann dramaHeads up I'm from r/all & have litterally never watched a game of chess in my life. But I do love me some drama since I'm currently unemployed & home sick. I think it's fascinating that a top player in any league or sport could strong arm tournaments/championships into blacklisting a potential competitor, former cheater(?) or not, with out proof that he had cheateed since turning his game around after a suspension. So I'm super interested in this. **Tinfoil Hat Theory** I think Hans hasn't cheated in the conventional sense. I think he outsmarted Magnus before they ever played. There are photos of them playing chess together and talking before the tournament. & apparently from my understanding Hans was fill in for someone and wasn't even scheduled to play Magnus. So here's what I think Hans did. I think Niemann made Magnus belive he would cheat. Then didnt. We know Magnus already knows Hans is a past cheater. Magnus has made it clear he will never play a known cheater again? But why? If you can catch them what's the issue? Hans played Magnus in several games of chess before this cup. I bet he underperformed & looked as if he was trying hard, while also having fun. Probably also saying things like "I could figure out a way to beat you if I really wanted" or "there's a few strategies I could try, but I don't think you'd like them." or "In a cup this would a *totally* different outcome". to lay the seeds that he is planning something dubious. So now Magnus is thinking, "yeah sure whatever. I'll never actually see this scrub in a tourny" and just plays it off. But then Magnus' opponent pulled out? Coincidence? I think not. Hans clearly has been in cahoots with the opponent whose name I could not find in a 15 second Google search. They've planned it. It's a bait & switch. And Magnus is shook. He can't believe it. He never expected this type of cleverness. Why would Hans choose now of all times to play him? What did Hans mean mean when he said "Not the same game" back on the shores of Miami. Now Magnus is off his game. He's positive Hans is cheating. But he doesn't know how. The match starts soon & he doesn't have enough of anything to proove it. Does he pull out & make a bunch of drama? No he'll just play & beat Hans. He did so on the beach. Plus If Niemann cheats, he'll surely be caught. But Hans won! & he didn't cheat. Magnus played poorly because he kept looking for something "off" in Hans moves. Hans knew he would play a perfectly legal game so all he had to do was show up after laying in the seeds of doubt in Magnus mind that he *would* cheat. Now Magnus is positive he cheated but can't prove it. And Hans knows he hasn't so is just letting Magnus dig his grave. It's all one big elaborate play. Niemann is basically M. Night or actually maybe he just really did cheat. Idk

There literally cannot be conclusive evidence unless he gets caught bead-handed or chose to use stockfish for literally every single move in his games for some reason. I assume he is smart enough to only cheat at critical points if he cheats at all.

Niemann - Carlsen: Why power differentials matterIn reference to Magnus giving out his statement, which very clearly implies that he believed Hans cheated OTB, there's something crucial I want to highlight: "I will not play players who have repeatedly cheated in the past, as I have no clue what they might do in the future." Reconcile a few of the facts here. 1. **Hans 100% cheated online, and there has been suspicion against his "unusual" OTB progress,** as stated by Magnus himself. However, such a progression in and of itself is not unprecedented (think Gata Kamsky's rise, or how Giri himself became a top player in a short amount of time by gaining 140 elo per year for 4 straight years). **Even if something is "unusual", that does** ***not*** **make it improbable**, as other players have accomplished something similar in the past. 2. Magnus's evidence. In his statement, if you read it carefully, **THE ONLY PIECE of evidence he actually brings up is Hans's body language, and that he had the audacity to "outplay him with black".** This is a ridiculous basis for an accusation; if you THINK someone is acting weird based on a hunch, you're going to find signals that nobody else will. It's basic confirmation bias, and many people tend to get that wrong. Because Magnus was aware that Hans cheated online before, it may have given him suspicions about his OTB play that simply could have been coincidence. Compare Niemann's mannerisms to Arjun Erigaisi, who is also similarly emotionless even when crushing top players. 3. Despite the intense cherry-picking of many "experts" who are dissecting every footstep Hans has walked since he was born, **there remains no physical proof or plausible explanation for** ***how*** **he could have done it.** He has a few great games like a top player, but that also ignores his losses and the fact that his average Elo gain per game is actually on the lower side compared to a few of his contemporary prodigies. **There has not been one iota of evidence so far that Hans cheated OTB, and all you have are "suspicions"**. It is entirely possible Hans cheated, but it is just outright stupid to believe that just because Magnus, an active biased stakeholder in this situation, gave out a statement that was basically a whole bunch of nothing. If Hans does get caught, it won't be because of anything Magnus is sitting on. So, what are the consequences of Magnus's statement? 1. In all of Magnus's passive-aggressive beating around the bush, there's one thing he made clear: he **specifically will not play Hans**. This forces tournament organizers into a choice between the top draw for all chess audiences, or a 19 year old prodigy who has had his reputation besmirched forever. It is QUITE obvious that unless Hans is proven innocent (which is also very difficult to do), Magnus is effectively calling for him to be blacklisted from basically all super tournaments. 2. **Magnus has immense power and reach** in the chess world, and even though he could probably afford to never play another chess game again and live off his millions, that is just not an option for anyone he chooses to accuse. 3. **Magnus has made absolutely no mention of how his standards will apply to others who have cheated**. Will he not play the Uzbek Olympiad winning team OTB? Or Parham, or Raunak? **Hans is not the only young player who has been banned online**, and yet he will carry all of the heat. **Hans will basically be a scapegoat for ALL OTB cheating**, as he has been over the past few weeks on social media. That is unfair for anyone to take, even if he is guilty, especially moreso that a conclusion has not been reached yet. 4. Even if FIDE does pose stricter anti-cheating controls, **Magnus's whole approach seems like a personal attack** on one unlikable young guy who dared to beat him, rather than a fair, principled stand against cheating. It is a very dangerous precedent that just because one guy who's the best in the world said something, that everyone is blindly expected to follow him and believe him based on that. 5. While cheating online or over-the-board is indefensible, it is strange for anyone to think that a younger person committing mistakes is the same as someone who is far older. Magnus's statement comes off as especially unfair, as it seems to be ignorant of the fact that people can change, which is something institutions such as chesscom can even understand with their second chance mechanism. **Everyone makes mistakes, and blacklisting a 19-year-old, potentially for life, based on the 'hunch' of the most powerful entity in chess (and NO evidence), just shouldn't sit right with anyone.**

Yeah, my take from Magnus' statement is that this is really about integrity in competitive Chess at large. Nepo said something about it, where he was asking for stricter security measures previously, but it wasn't until Magnus withdrew that this was actually implemented. I think I agree with you sentiment about sympathy on both sides as well. Based on what we're hearing from GMs, I think it's safe to assume that OTB cheating happens much more that we are aware of. If we also assume the worst, and that Hans HAS cheated recently and frequently, I would say that based on assumption 1, he probably has been lead to believe that this is prevalent and to some degree acceptable. Maybe a poor mentor, or just listening to all the rumors from other players about suspected cheaters that seem to be moving up in the Chess world without consequences. Maybe he feels stuck, and watches other cheaters living his dream. I know it's not a perfect analogy, but I imagine it would be a similar situation to cycling and baseball, where amongst players it's just an open secret that more people than not are doping, and if you're not doping then you're falling behind. And then going back to Magnus' side of things, imagine being at the top of the Chess world for so long and watching this all take place. He's not stupid, he knows that he's probably the only player many outside of the Chess world could name. He knows people tune in to watch him, and listen to what he says. Similar to what Nepo and Caruana have said, he's probably broached these subjects behind closed doors on multiple occasions with little or no action taken by the people responsibility (tournament organizers, FIDE, etc.). And like Hans, he too is watching the Chess world rapidly getting taken over by cheaters. So St. Louis happens, and a young player that he already has a bunch of suspicions about is accepted, and he decides that for better or for worse that he is going to blow the doors open. So it's really shitty that Hans ends up being the one that everyone scrutinizes, because if we ARE assuming that cheating is prevalent, then it's probably just unlucky for him that he was the center of Magnus' attention and not some other players, in conjunction with all of the pressures that would push someone down that path in the first place. That being said, his persona probably makes him an ideal lightning rod for this, if it does indeed expose a greater problem of cheating in chess overall. Like, the world is listening now. This shit is everywhere in mainstream media. My friends who know nothing about chess know the anal bead memes. Idk...yeah Magnus could have definitely handed this more tactfully. But would it have had the same impact?

Why now and why NiemannSo the question is quite obvious and simple: Carlsen is in the chess-world for quite some time at the highest level. He has been playing for a long time. Other GMs and super GMs are now coming out saying they think some people were cheating, other "experts" say it would be super easy to cheat and so on. **So if Carlsen is so unbelievably interested in the fate of chess why is he talking about it only now and why Niemann, or better yet: why just Niemann?!** In all these years Carlsen didn't experience any cheating or didn't bother speaking up about it? Did the other GMs never share anything with him, stuff they now share with us, the public? This seems really weird. Couple that with Carlsen's undecisiveness to play or not play for the world champion title and it's quite weird. (I'm not talking about him not wanting to play another world-title-match, I'm talking about him taking his sweet time in anouncing this instead of giving a decisive answer before the Candidates so that players actually now what they're plying for, which would have been the right thing to do.)

"I will not play in any tournament that where X is playing" is very troubling, everything else aside.First off: cheating is a problem. It's probably a bigger problem than many realize. Tournaments need to wake up to the realities of engine power and wireless transmitter size in the 21st century and make some changes. On top of that, Hans certainly has plenty of suspicious history. It's quite possible he cheated. All that said... leveraging your personal prestige and economic power to try to unilaterally blacklist a player is despicable. Just as chess cannot retain competitive integrity without better anti-cheat, it also cannot retain that integrity if top players are able to use their personal power within the scene to destroy any up and coming player that they do not like. I really don't think that point needs justification. The integrity of the game must be ensured by neutral third party arbiters. If they are not doing a good enough job, *pressure them*. Picking a target and attempting to crush a 19 year old kid because you caught bad vibes is itself very damaging to the game. Magnus has enough business influence and prestige to radically influence the direction of the chess scene. He had the option to set his conditions for tournament security and abundant ways to pressure organizers and FIDE to make changes. Instead he chose to lash out at an individual, while several of the involved organizers have stated that he hasn't even contacted them! This is really disappointing, and it will be even more disappointing if he is allowed to do this and organizers cave to a de facto blacklist of people Magnus finds personally suspicious. This is entirely regardless of whether Hans cheated, which again I find quite plausible. If he did cheat, there are two options available: catch him (convincingly), or change the systems involved to prevent him from doing it again without getting caught. Anything else is just exploiting a power dynamic to punish someone the WC doesn't like with no proof.

It doesn’t imply someone cheated. That said, if you have a fairly complex game with over 40 moves and 100% engine game correlation, that is suspicious. Not impossible, but suspicious. If you combine the fact that Hans has multiple 100% games, a couple are long, he has a history of cheating, his performance in 5 tournaments played back to back was very improbable, has a suspected cheater for a coach, likes anal beads, terrible post game analysis, and a unprecedented rise in chess… I’d say it definitely looks like Hans is cheating. Everything seems to suggest it. Is there proof? No. But given all the circumstances, it seems foolish to think it more likely he isn’t cheating. Most likely, he is cheating of he is an absolute inconsistent God in chess. Those are pretty much the only two options at this point. Hans will have to give permission for GMs to speak freely or the suspicion around him will only grow. I say they should do a tournament in an airport. Hans is still a very good player, but it would be interesting to see his performance over 100 classical games where there is maximum security. Personally, I’m inclined to think he is cheating. He’s already a known cheater.

That's like saying two people playing chess via radiowaves can't cheat right? Online tourney anything can happen I feel like. I just remember watching videos of Magnus resigning and cutting off his stream. Edit: Right now Niemann is considered the anal beat cheater, that's a bit far fetched but who knows really when the guy is a known cheater it's hard to not question how legit he is.

Why are people here so focused on how or whether Niemann cheated OTBIt seems to me that this scandal doesn't really have that much to do about Hans Niemann, other than him being the catalyst of a long-standing and unspoken problem in chess. Clearly the core of the issue for Magnus and other super-GMs sympathetic to his actions is that top players get too easily ignored if they bring up cheating concerns to organisers and to FIDE. My guess is that on many occasions over the past few years, Magnus Carlsen and other players have brought up behind the scenes concrete cases where they suspected fowl play, only for those to be discarded after a 5-min check through Ken Reagan's or any other very conservative anti-cheating algorithm. Then comes this new rising teenager, with a history of online cheating, that has very uncharacteristic rating progression, behaves quite bizarrely at times during post game interviews, and despite the concerns of Magnus, Nepo and perhaps others, is not only invited to a top tournament but there are very minimal checks on the integrity of the tournament (at least until Magnus withdrew). My guess is that the game Carlsen lost to Hans was just the straw that broke the camel's back, it's probably not about whether Hans actually cheated, but more likely that after bringing up concerns multiple times through the appropriate channels and being ignored, and finding himself forced to play an uncomfortable game where he wasn't sure if his opponent was cheating or not because nothing had been done to appease that fear, Magnus decided to take a principled stance, because if he doesn't then who else? And give a clear signal that he will not play under those conditions, that the integrity of the game is more important than participating in a tournament, and that more has to be done to dissuade cheating online and OTB.

Its almost as if you are doing the exact thing you are accusing Magnus for: accusing people without evidence. How do you know that "Magnus does not need Han's permission to share evidence"? Are you his lawyer? Do you know more than him? Clearly there are extenuating circumstances. Its honestly funny how you believe you know everything about the situation and that you are the moral god dictating what people can do. Most rational thinking members are not "finding reasons to support Magnus", they are simply telling you to wait for more information before making an opinion, precisely to avoid such a biased representation of the situation as yours. At the same time, I do agree with a few of your points. Magnus definitely could have handled the 'position' better, many people could have acted differently, etc., but at this point this whole situation is just terrible for both sides. No one wins, but certainly Magnus won't lose.

I'm not making any assumptions. I've repeated my point multiple times, but you'd rather try strawman or drama farm this situation. If Hans was caught by Chess.com lying in his confession, that is absolutely grounds to ban him from the platform. It's that simple. To not do so would be an even worse reflection on their platform is the full details of the situation ever leaked. The fact that you so brazenly glaze over this in order to perpetuate this narrative that a player with a sketchy history is being bullied isn't worth any more discussion. His punishment was deferred and as of this moment, we aren't sure why that's the case. That's not really relevant though, because the people who have the information acted on it. Don't even bother coming back with whatever cringe comment you're going to make next. Nobody wants to hear an anal-bead level conspiracy about how Magnus and the shadow cabal is pressuring Chess.com to cancel Hans.

This is stupid. What "real proof" are you looking for? Are we expecting Magnus to present us with vibrating anal beads with Hans' finger prints on them? All chess cheating accusation are circumstantial by definition unless you catch them while the cheating is happening at the moment. This is like saying that we can't argue about cheating ever unless we can handcuff them right here and there. Even the famous Toilet Gate drama first began with the opponent finding the guy suspicious for going to the restroom too often. Is that "real proof"? This drama is not really about Hans or Magnus. Sure, they are fighting and bickering, but let them fight on their own. I couldn't care less. The real problem with this drama is that anti-cheat measures in otb chess suck. Can a player just randomly accuse others of cheating out of his whim? What do we do with a person who is very suspicious? How do we investigate this player and what is enough? If Hans played a game with great accuracy, is that a proof enough that he is a cheater? If Hans found some really brilliant moves on the board, is that enough? Is Hans not paying attention in the game an enough proof? Or are we just going to be completely incompetent and say "well unless we do the cavity search, we shall never know"? Are we okay with cheaters potentially just getting a "get out of the jail free" card once they just get away with it at the moment? Those are the real problems in this drama because nobody seems to know/agree on what to do. Whether Magnus has any real proof is not even a question. Of course it's circumstantial, we all knew that. I mean, just think about it. How can he possibly have any physical evidence on this? How? This is not a news.

Magnus is right, even though he might be wrongHaving read and watched most of what came out in the last few weeks, I think people are focusing on the wrong issue. I don't think it matters whether Hans cheated on that specific Sinquefield cup game against Magnus or not. The undisputable facts are: 1) Hans has cheated before online, probably even more than he admitted to (as per [Chess.com](https://Chess.com) statement) 2) Super GMs are suspicious about Hans' OTB games as well (as per all of Hikaru's and other GMs' takes about what happened in the inner circles in recent months) 3) At least some of the Super GMs were unconfortable with playing against Hans even before this whole thing became public (as per Ian's video and Fabi's podcast) 4) Hans performed well against Magnus (even if not beyond what could be possible to a player of his level), but Magnus performed really poorly (Hikaru said we wouldn't be surprised if it was his worst performiing game in the last few years) &#x200B; With all that being said, there is a clout of suspicion around Hans, that is not uncalled for (as per his own admisisons and [Chess.com](https://Chess.com) evidence), and even if he's not cheating OTB (or in every single game), it is really hard psychologically for a player to be fully concentrated in a game where they think the opponent might be cheating. Therefore, for me, the only way out of this is for FIDE to partner with the Chess websites and develop a cheating alogrithm (and process for suspending players) together. There is no reason for online cheating to be more ok than OTB cheating, and it causes an impact on the whole chess envirornment . Players cannot be expected to perform at their peak when they have good motives to be suspicious about other players (and that seems to be the reason Magnus will not play Hans in the future)

"And I don't think there's any evidence you could obtain, unless of course you had the "anal beads" with Hans' DNA on them. That just like the gun with his fingerprints on it would be evidence, but of course not proof of anything." **In other words. There is nothing, nothing at all that can persuade you that Hans, or anyone else cheated.** I agree that we will never find anything equivalent of "anal beads" with his DNA, and even if we did, he could claim that he only uses those when playing online, that he would never ever think to bring them to a tournament where "it matters" against strong opponents. So yeah, like you said. Not even that would prove anything. &#x200B; However, I do not agree that we need concrete evidence like that. You can find what you need to make a reasonable assessment by looking at other factors. For instance; How does a cheater look vs. a non cheater? Pragganandhaa , Alireza, Esipenko etc. He is far from the first prodigy, but he is abnormal among them. Imagine that his time management was "normal" like the other players Imagine that he had been able to answer for himself doing the analysis that he had been so lucky to just prep that very day Imagine he would not have been outplayed on the analysis board the day after by a supposed much lower rated player, claiming that white was winning, with an engine elo of -3, where other GM immediately saw that black was much better, who didn't even play the game the Hans had just spent several hours "studying". The case against him would be much weaker, even if he has cheated (let say for the sake of argument) only twice in the past. There would hardly be a case at all (expect the general suspicion that you might relapse) As it is however, we live in the world where we we have a person who looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck. And *is* a known ~~duck~~ cheater who lies about the extent and severity. And no. It is not irrelevant that this is in his past. It is highly relevant. People don't just wake up one day an go "hmm, let's cheat in a high profile tournament today!" Past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior, and he has a track record spanning several years of cheating, and we also know that he lies about it, in other words, people (Hikaru) leaked that he had been banned from at least twice from chessdotcom. He had a chance to come clean, but no. He admitted to the bare minimum, and willfully lied about the extent. That is highly relevant. &#x200B; TL:DR Hans is either an extremely odd and abnormal fellow in many aspects, who also cheats Or he is simply a cheater.

Posts with editorialized titles will be removed. For example, an acceptable title for a post concerning [this tweet](https://twitter.com/olimpiuurcan/status/1243093208520777729) would be: > [Urcan] FIDE has stopped and postponed the 2020 Candidates tournament.

Mike Tyson plays a ton of chess, not sure his rating, but Lennox Lewis plays on chess.com all the time and is around 1200. I think Vitali Klitschko plays a bunch too, and is current mayor of Kyiv. Boxing doesn't mean you get brain damage.
