      I think Niemann has someone on another area controlling his mouse when Niemann plays. maybe niemann has a device for it, but it maybe isn't nedded one to cheat in his case..

      @SeventeenMidgets Just because AI engines are around doesn't mean everyone is cheating, and just because hansie boy admitted to cheating doesn't mean he's always cheating. Not saying hansie boy isn't now: he's been cleared and no current evidence he's cheating. Maybe Magpie is making a statement or maybe hansie boy finally figured out Magpie's style.

      Chess no longer speaks for itself. Magnus is literally his name. He is the last great, likely until chess can only be played under microscopic scrutiny. Why? Chess has been stained by ai engines. It is no longer creative or unique. It is cheatable to a ridiculous point now. Hans already proved he was a cheater. If one cannot be trusted in small things, they cannot be trusted in great thinga either.

      yesss and just before the start of the miami crypto cup, hans and magnus were playing some lighthearted chess on the beach and there was also a time hans was fanboying over magnus so much. I recall in another CCT event, when he was playing very badly, in the interview he said if u want to be anyone's fan, become a magnus fan rather than me. Insanee how things change but i'm hoping everything cools over and one day when they are both really old, they become good friends.

      @M K because it isn't possible to calculate 60 moves ahead as a human. we are just saying this as a joke because magnus carlsen for no reason at all resigned the game. we could only jokingly assume that he calculated the entire game and knew he was losing

    It's not about Cheating only. Magnus guesed that NIemann was going for the same variation (g3) like in their previous game and Magnus took that as an insult.

    • PandaMan
      PandaMan 4 days ago

      @Coffee at Noon 100% agree. And with it, he attempts to destroy an innocent person's career and reputation. Zero respect for Carlsen as a person now.

    • Coffee at Noon
      Coffee at Noon 4 days ago

      @PandaMan Magnus has nothing, except that he lost and somehow just because he lost his opponent must have cheated. When you think about it its almost as unsportsmanlike as truly cheating, because it furthers an assumption that the higher ranked player should always win. Bad for the sport and embarrassing.

    • PandaMan
      PandaMan 9 days ago

      @no idea That's silly and speculation is all fine. But how did he cheat? Did he have an accomplice? Everyone who matters, GM's beside Magnus of course, say there is nothing there. Strange, yes, but proof? Again, where is the proof. I'm appalled at people trying to ruin his career over "strangeness" or "sus" or "speculation". Where's the proof. Cause when you do this, you are hurting the system FAR MORE by damning a possibly innocent person than by throwing a 16 year old cheater under the bus.

      @Michele Bardella ‘71 Il "sore loser" non è propriamente un perdente, piuttosto uno che non accetta la sconfitta. Nella maggioranza dei casi, i grandissimi campioni sono "sore losers", perché ci vuole cattiveria agonistica per dominare così a lungo. Con questo non sto dicendo né che Carlsen sia necessariamente un sore loser (se Niemann stesse barando, sarebbe una grave offesa sia all'agonismo che a Carlsen stesso, e quest'ultimo avrebbe tutte le ragioni del mondo per essere inxxxxxxo), né che lo siano tutti i grandi, ma diciamo che l'umiltà estrema non è una dote che aiuta in ambito sportivo (gli scacchi non sono uno sport in senso stretto, ma credo che il ragionamento sia chiaro). Comunque, brutta storia.

    • Michele Bardella ‘71
      Michele Bardella ‘71 9 days ago +1

      Le informazioni che do io sono erronee quanto sono le tue. E ti spiego il perché.
      Ai tempi in cui Emnuel Lasker divenne Campione del Mondo, era usanza ritenere che il titolo appartenesse di diritto a chi avesse vinto il titolo. Chiunque avesse voluto sfidare il Campione del mondo, avrebbe dovuto sottostare alla regole dettate da quest’ultimo, altrimenti il detentore del titolo Mondiale avrebbe potuto anche rifiutare la sfida. Se Lasker è rimato a lungo Campione del Mondo, è proprio in virtù di queste sue prerogative. Carl Schlechter con le regole odierne sarebbe stato di diritto Campione del Mondo.
      Quindi lascia stare i “record” di Lasker.

    i think you will know the cheating in his 2nd move as the first move implies the possibility of every tactic but if his 2nd move was placed base on how an engine acts
    then thats enough as proof
    even if he knows that he's a cheater atleast he still shows and respects his opponent by showing up and having the courage to withdraw the moment he knows that his opponent does not respect him

    The more time passes, the more circumstantial evidence is found that Hans Niemann very probably cheated in normal chess as well. I already found it striking that Hans Moke didn't win any game after the time-delayed broadcast in St. Louis. As already pointed out, the performance of Hans Moke in online broadcast presence tournaments in the last three years was compared with that without DGT board broadcast. With several hundred points of performance difference a blatant drop in performance is noticeable. To all chess fans who continue to defend the young US grandmaster and vilify the world champion, allow me to ask whether they have studied probability theory in mathematics. On the You-Tube channel of the Ukrainian FM Andrii Punin with name Chess Fan MWP it is shown that Niemann played the first recommendations of older computer programs like Rybka and Stockfish 11. IM Atle Grønn commented in the newspaper Dagbladet: In normal games the US-American mostly played according to his ranking, but in especially important games Niemann played almost unbelievably precise and above his conditions. In some of the games he analyzed, Niemann played rows and rows of computer moves at a time and didn't allow himself a mistake. That's hard to believe - especially since these were important games in which the pressure on the youngster was particularly high.
    Magnus Carlsen simply gives up after the first move in the Julius Baer Generations Cup, going offline and pouring more fuel on the fire. This isn't a witch hunt, though, but a strong statement against a cheater with a big mouth. The World Champion, like his Norwegian compatriot, is sure that from a chess perspective it's not possible to play like that and the probability of it happening is close to zero, even if many chess fans believe in the good in two-time cheater Hans Moke Niemann.

      @lgmediapc salon have an engine open in another app that has an overlay and tells you the moves, in this case, the easiest is to have a friend which will look at the live stream, use an engine, and shout the moves to hans niemann (they have no mic so nobody can hear) or have an earpiece, it's really easy to cheat, in real life it might get a bit difficult but there are ways

    I haven’t seen anyone say HOW Hans might be cheating??? They just say “I believe he might be cheating.” But no proof nor any description of HOW. That’s pretty absurd and unfair.

    Obviously Magnus had a forced win lined up and when the Hans did not see this and immediately resign Magnus did what he had too to save Hans's respectability.

    I propose a solution of a blitz/bullet display of talent by Hans. He has to defeat a top level GM in a full blitz/bullet match to prove his increase in Classical rating is connected to an actual improvement of understanding of the game.

    Best move Magnus ever played.


    What this Magnus move says to us is, whatever he will will do in the entire tournament, however briliant his other wins will be, all people will ask is "why you resigned against Hans". This is why he didn't gave a damn speaking today.

    • PandaMan
      PandaMan 10 days ago

      Exactly. Magnus is single handedly ruining his legacy, while attempting to ruin the career of a young player, without a single iota of proof.

    At their rankings, they are worlds apart. Magnus can actually predict Hans' probability of optimization and Hans is performing in such an outlier fashion there is no explanation, because then Hans would be much higher ranking. His performances against Magnus are literally defying reality.

    I watched it in x 0.5 speed at 00:08 and hans was doing something on the PC you can see it on the reflection of the screen in his face, I think magnus noticed that and idk, he thought he was gonna be cheating again and refused to play. This is just a theory, im not blaming anyone

    I think the “Magnus” effect is dying or maybe already dead. Wesley So was the first one to break Magnus’ shield of Invincibility by defeating him many many times in the last 2 years in major online games. The rest of the super GMs are finally catching up, Nieman and now Pragg have proven him “Mortal” and no longer The Chess God.

    Carlsen has no chance against Hans & he knows it. Hans can read his mind, he knows what his move will be even before Magnus touches the piece. Magnus knows this, yet he is helpless.
    That's why he resigned.

    Many will doubt Hans no matter what. If I were Hans, I would already be talking to my lawyer. Magnus has damaged Hans' aspirations of making chess his profession, and it is worthy of litigation because Magnus stated as an accusation on the record by INFERENCE (which is different from mere implication):
    " I would accuse you of being a fu**ing cheater .... but you could rightfully sue me."
    See why that logic is already worth a lawsuit? ☺

      Bobby 10 days ago

      Hear hear! There is absolutely no justification for the way Magnus Carlsen handles himself except for attained and presented evidence that clearly proves without a doubt that Hans is cheating. Magnus comes of as an utterly disrespectful and childish person and I’m truly disappointed:(

    • Lord Fifth
      Lord Fifth 10 days ago +1

      @cesco Yeah i also think engine cheat is very unlikely, and i kinda agree about Hikaru.
      But Hans saying he watched Carlsen's match from 4 years ago that morning which he used a similar gambit is definitely suspicious to me, especially considering he has caught cheating before.
      Magnus obviously doesnt want to talk about it, he posted Chelsea's manager saying "if i speak im in big trouble" line. He definitely suspects Hans but doesnt want to risk getting sued.
      Normally i'd say innocent until proven guilty but Hans has proven guilty before so idk if that applies. Anyways we'll see what will happen i guess.

    • cesco
      cesco 10 days ago +1

      @Lord Fifth hikaru is a clown. Full respect for the chess player that he is, very low respect for him as a person.
      He's the main one who accused Hans, then when confronted about it he took back his words. It's not the first time he accused people of cheating without proof. I give 0 credibility to what Hikaru says. Magnus is the only one who can at least clear a bit of this up, but he has to say something.
      My opinion is that Hans did not cheat, at least not engine cheat. He might had infos about Magnus prep somehow... but again this needs to be proven. Magnus played poorly... if it wasn't for Magnus resignation that match wouldn't be anything special, Hans made imprecisions, nothing unhuman in that match.
