The International Chess Federation accuses the world number one of tarnishing the reputation of his game

Magnus Carlsen, the world’s No.1 chess player, has been accused of ‘damaging’ the game after sensationally quitting a match against another grandmaster after a blow fearing his rival was using tricks. anal beads for cheating.

In a statement on Friday, the president of the International Chess Federation (FIDE), Arkady Dvorkovich, revealed that he was unhappy with Carlsen’s behavior in withdrawing from the Sinquefield Cup and abandoning his match against his opponent from 19 years old, Hans Niemann.

The resignation came amid rumors that Neimann cheated by using a vibrating anal sex toy.

Dvorkovich took aim at the Carlsen world, saying the 31-year-old Norwegian has a “moral responsibility” as he is “considered a global ambassador for the game”.

‘His actions impact the reputation of his colleagues, athletes [sport-related] results, and can potentially be detrimental to our game. We strongly believe there were better ways to handle this situation,” he said.

The statement did not “specify” what situation they were referring to, although it was likely the sensational claim about anal beads, which Neimann denied.

He is accused of using a vibrating, remote-controlled sex toy to gain an advantage over Carlsen by ringing the device at an accomplice to guide him to better moves.

The chairman said the game’s governing body is looking to create a group of “specialists” who will eliminate cheating from FIDE events.

“FIDE is prepared to task its Fair Play Commission with a thorough investigation into the incident,” Dvorkovich said.

The chess body boss said further evidence would be needed before such an investigation could begin.

Young American chess player Neimann lost in the quarterfinals on Thursday, eliminating the possibility of a dramatic rematch between the cheating prodigy and Carlsen.

Neimann lost to Le Quang Liem on Thursday.

He furiously denied using vibrating anal beads to receive advice on how to play.

“I’ve never cheated in a game overboard. If they want me to strip completely I will,” he said.

The Bay Area native unexpectedly beat the world champion in a live battle for the Sinquefield Cup in St. Louis a month before the online tournament on Chess24.

The teenage chess star sparked rumors that he was cheating by using remote-controlled vibrating anal beads to communicate with his trainer, Maxim Dlugy.

Dlugy was banned from Chess.com in 2017 after allegedly cheating on one of the titles, and was the first to suspect Borislav Ivanov of cheating with a device in his shoes in 2013.

Dlugy, a former chess prodigy, was also jailed for trying to embezzle $9 million from a magnesium factory he ran in Russia, but was later cleared of all charges.

Carlsen was asked about his thoughts on the bizarre cheating allegations by a reporter in Oslo.

“Unfortunately, I can’t speak to it specifically, but people can come to their own conclusions and they certainly have,” Carlsen said. “I have to say I’m very impressed with Niemann’s play and I think his mentor Maxim Dlugy must be doing a great job.”

With Neimann’s recent loss, Carlsen will now face Vincent Keymer in the semi-finals, and if he wins, he will face either Liem or Argun Erigaisi.

He has now declined to say if he thinks Niemann cheated during their two matches in an interview.

He added that he thought cheating in sports was ‘easy’ to do, but he ‘wouldn’t recommend it’ no matter how ‘tempting’ it might be.

Carlsen also said he would “probably” say a bit more about the whole situation at the end of the tournament.

During a preliminary round of the online tournament, Carlsen surprised the announcers when he made a single move with black, then conceded defeat and disconnected from the match. The previous week, he had left an over-the-board tournament after losing the Niemann.

Announcer Tania Sachdev said during Carlsen’s disappearance act that it was “unprecedented”, saying he was “making a very big statement” by refusing to play Niemann.

This follows San Francisco-born Niemann’s victory over Norway’s Carlsen – when the teenager was playing black – at the Sinquefield Cup on September 4.

FIDE, the world chess governing body, condemned Carlsen’s actions, saying “his actions impact the reputations of his fellow chessmen, sports results and may possibly harm our game”.

“We strongly believe there were better ways to handle this situation.”

When Carlsen dropped out of the St. Louis tournament without explanation, he posted a cryptic Tweet saying, “I pulled out of the tournament.” I’ve always enjoyed playing @STLChessClub and hope to be back in the future.

Along with the tweet, he posted a cryptic video of football manager Jose Mourinho saying, “If I talk, I’m in big trouble.”

Mourinho was speaking at a press conference after a match in which his side allegedly lost due to questionable decisions by the officials.

Carlsen had gone 53 classic games unbeaten and had already won the cup twice in the past decade, but had never retired from an ongoing event.

Chess.com declined to invite Niemann to the Chess.com Global Championship, a million-dollar event starting with online qualifiers and ending with an eight-man final in Toronto, after controversy.

Niemann furiously denied using vibrating anal beads to receive advice on how to perform. The teenage star said: “I have never cheated in a game overboard. If they want me to undress completely, I will.

‘I do not care. Because I know I’m clean. You want me to play in a closed box with zero electronic transmission, I don’t care. I’m here to win and that’s my goal regardless.

But critics note that his Elo rating, which measures the strength of chess players, rose to 2,701 after his win over Carlsen, from just 2,484 in January 2021, a staggering increase that some find unlikely.

And Niemann admitted to cheating in online chess tournaments as a child, saying he deeply regretted it.

During an online match when he was 12, he says a friend of his brought an iPad loaded with a “chess engine” program that offered the most likely path to victory.

The person Niemann was playing couldn’t see it and was therefore unaware of what was going on.
