This thread is a load of ass, only for those who are really anal about chess. You can stick it where the sun don't shine.

You have quite a vivid imagination. I would think that Magnus Carlsen would smell something rotten in Denmark if Hans Moke Niemann did that. So I do think that's what went down.

It would be a device that would receive a transmission and then using Arduino/Raspberry Pi or something electronic like that stuff covert the signal into a vibration. It could be Morse code, or something simple as a few buzzes. Like two buzzes at the right time that would signal to use a piece like the knight and that would all he need to know - being Grand Master and all. That's what I've heard on YouTube.

Clearly you're not a grandmaster at creating polls.
The options are just a small sample of all the possible variations. I would have used "sometimes cheats" if I used "he cheats on every single game" as an option, but I didn't.

The one option comes from the horse's mouth himself. Hans Moke Niemann admitted to cheating in the past on games he played online, but doesn't over the board. "Always cheats" would probably be better written out as "he always been known to cheat, not only online but also over the board." IDK, not enough time and space to write all that out.

This is a good example of "The Trollheart Gambit," where he goes full throttle like Evil Knievel telling a joke hoping not to crash & burn just for a few lulz.

The title of this thread makes me laugh every time I see it - and this story has an element of the experience only being as good as you make it.

Just when you think the smoke has cleared. OK to back track a minute. Hans Moke Niemann was accused of cheating. Elon Musk alluded to electronic communication via anal beads. Hans Niemann said OK he would play naked. After that naked chess match didn't come to fruition he vowed to sue the pants off of Magnus Carlsen.

Breaking News: Hans Niemann Files $100,000,000 Law Suit.
