Shakey Mo Collier, Tuesday, 15 March 2005 23:51 (seventeen years ago) link

the horsey moves two along and one across, the dirty vicar moves diagonally, freddy mercury goes as far as and to whatever direction he damn well pleases, whereas elvis is so fat he can only move one square at a time. castles, on the other hand despite being inanimate objects, can move in straight lines, the pwns move forward and then get killed, hence the name

magnus just does not want anything to do with the lad

He did not say anything. https://t.co/WPsUsktN8P

i don't blame him tbh

Allen (etaeoe), Monday, 19 September 2022 22:57 (two weeks ago) link

yeah i tend to trust magnus on this, and a number of other top players seem to be suspicious of hans too, but its a pretty weird situation where magnus is just being extremely passive aggressive

lag∞n, Monday, 19 September 2022 23:04 (two weeks ago) link

mb magnus is convinced that hans is cheating but doesnt have any hard proof

lag∞n, Monday, 19 September 2022 23:05 (two weeks ago) link

he admitted to cheating. twice. in tournaments. and chess.com implied it was worse than that! it's insane he's even invited to these tournaments.

Allen (etaeoe), Monday, 19 September 2022 23:15 (two weeks ago) link

getting caught cheating online doesnt seem to be that big of a deal in the chess world for whatever reason, theres other players whove cheated online but still get invited to live tourneys, tho i dont think theres anyone at the absolute top level, part of it i think is theres no formal admin relationship between the sites and fide

lag∞n, Monday, 19 September 2022 23:24 (two weeks ago) link

another thing that complicates it is those cheating instances were when he was a child

lag∞n, Monday, 19 September 2022 23:27 (two weeks ago) link

COVID changed everything because tournaments went online. He wasn’t cheating in marches to boost his Elo, he was cheating in tournaments and accepting cash prizes. This also wasn’t when he was much younger. The last incident happened at the beginning of COVID.

Allen (etaeoe), Tuesday, 20 September 2022 01:10 (two weeks ago) link

yeah he was 16 at the beginning of covid, and fwiw hes been rolling since tourneys have gone live again, so if hes not cheating over the board then hes prob not cheating online either hes just that good

lag∞n, Tuesday, 20 September 2022 01:14 (two weeks ago) link

i mean he beat magnus, his first classical loss in like two years

lag∞n, Tuesday, 20 September 2022 01:30 (two weeks ago) link

I like to imagine Magnus is just salty as can be and is claiming foul to protect his ego. I say this in admiration to Magnus because Lord knows I would do the same in his position.

Seriously tho, Kinda messed up to let cheaters in. Don't care if it was when you were a kid or whatever. Bans need to be made public and enforced. Magnus is able to do what he is doing (and imo is justified) because FIDE and Chess.com are giving too much leeway and not being transparent with their response to cheating (speaking of the past). Hope this fixes things and we get some public stoning's in the future.
no formal relationship between sites/FIDE really does mess with this. Team Magnus lets gooooooooooo

seems like magnus thinks this dlugy guy is in on the scheme

"Unfortunately I cannot particularly speak on that but people can draw their own conclusion & they certainly have. I have to say I am very impressed by Niemann's play & I think his mentor Maxim Dlugy must have been doing a great job"

lag∞n, Wednesday, 21 September 2022 20:46 (two weeks ago) link

Is Magnus mainly mad that someone in his team leaked his opening prep? it seems too implausable that someone would be able to engine cheat during an on the board classical game.

cajunsunday, Wednesday, 21 September 2022 21:36 (two weeks ago) link

you could do it, some of the things people have done to cheat at gambling are unbelievable, chess would be relatively easy

lag∞n, Wednesday, 21 September 2022 21:53 (two weeks ago) link

one interesting thing i read is magnus before this whole thing was speculating about cheating and said that hed only need to have two or three moves a game given to him to be totally unbeatable

lag∞n, Wednesday, 21 September 2022 21:55 (two weeks ago) link

and people have done engine cheating over the board before fwiw tho not at as a high profile a tourney as sinquefield

lag∞n, Wednesday, 21 September 2022 21:57 (two weeks ago) link

its anal beads

LaMDA barry-stanners (||||||||), Wednesday, 21 September 2022 21:59 (two weeks ago) link

you dont even need to get the moves from the anal beads just having them in there is an advantage

lag∞n, Wednesday, 21 September 2022 22:00 (two weeks ago) link

Oh I guess Dlugy is a known cheater huh.

Maxim Dlugy is an infamous New York based GM and coach, who has been accused of cheating online. He took some credit for Niemann's success when he made world's top 50, calling him his student.

LOL. I didn’t know about the Dlugy relationship. Absolutely incredible. He’s such a wildly shady character. In addition to cheating (and I suspect most people don’t know this), he’s been arrested multiple times for every financial crime imaginable.

gukesh currently #23 in the world at 2726 is also the youngest, 16 y/0, player in the top 100!

feel like he hasnt got as much hype as some of the other very young players but then he just went on an insane run recently gained 100pt in 6 months, wild

4 indian teenagers in the top 100

lag∞n, Friday, 23 September 2022 17:43 (one week ago) link

they found multiple games where hans played 100 computer perfect moves

Pretty cool analysis. TLDR: Fischer, Carlsen, Kasparov at their best played with 69-72% correlation to chess engines. Niemann played at >70% correlation in many tournaments, and 79% correlation in two tournaments in a row. https://t.co/8P3GkEQaVS

yeah its lame kasparov has such a good reputation when hes a huge idiot baby whos been trying to start a war between the us and russia for the last decade+ and believes jesus was born in crimea in 1152, on the other hand he is maybe the best chess player ever, but still
