I just wanna know how someone can cheat using anal beads. Did he use some that are shaped like chess pieces and he slipped one out and onto the board while no one was looking?

I haven't read too much into the story, but I've yet to read just how one cheats at chess with vibrating anal beads. I mean, I don't doubt that you can...I just don't know the details of how.

Well yeah sure, I guess. I like my theory better, although they both stink.

Quote:
The chess matches and board state are broadcast live, so a team could watch the board, feed it into an AI chess player, and communicate the AI’s moves back to Niemann. In the anal bead theory, Niemann’s team would vibrate the anal beads in a certain way that would tell the 31-year-old player how to move.

Well, if Elon Musk said it, it must be true

Did the beads transmit moves using Morse code?

So the top two options are either he never cheats over the board or he always cheats. So sometimes cheats is not an option.

Clearly you're not a grandmaster at creating polls.
