|Apr-13-15|| ||dumbgai: <Nigalidze and Borislav Ivanov are the true champions of chess. Both of them have way more skill tha nthat patzer Carlsen.>|
I don't know about that. Stan Vaughan, rating 4400, might offer a stiff challenge.
|Apr-13-15|| ||perfidious: Vaughan is in a league of his own--would not get out of bed to meet Carlsen for a match if the latter's life depended on it.|
|Apr-14-15|| ||Sally Simpson: The Anti-Social Chess Player is the one to watch if you
suspect skull doggery and computer use during a game.|
Note it starts off with..."A Russian grandmaster friend of mine..."
I want a name or is this Russian Grandmaster friend of his anti-social.
From Stephen Moss in The Guardian on the Gaioz Nigalidze, affair.
"A Russian grandmaster friend of mine is convinced that cheating in top-level
open tournaments (as opposed to elite events with small invited fields) is rife.
The temptation is enormous because the only people who make serious
money from playing are the top 20 or so GMs in the world, who get invites
to all the most prestigious tournaments.
That leaves a host of impoverished GMs fighting for scraps, unless they are
willing to subject themselves to the grind of teaching chess to amateurs.
The more antisocial types Ė not uncommon in chess Ė dislike teaching,
and try to eke out a living from playing.
Thatís where the temptation to cheat comes in: if you donít win a prize,
you might not eat that week, let alone pay the rent."

Sure, who doesn't these days? http://de.chessbase.com/portals/3/f...
and here's another epochal cheater revealed: http://de.chessbase.com/portals/3/f... ;)

International Master (2009); Grandmaster (2014). Georgian Champion (2013) Proven Cheater (2015)
|Apr-16-15|| ||dumbgai: Either all cheaters use hilariously stupid methods, or there are more clever cheaters out there that haven't been caught yet?|
|May-01-15|| ||whiteshark: Here's another cheater exposed: http://en.chessbase.com/post/yet-an...|
Kinda construction manual with photos ;)
|May-01-15|| ||MissScarlett: Kakkar by name, Kakkar by nature.|
|May-01-15|| ||sfm: What a disgrace.
Out for 15 years would be fine with me.
When prize money is involved it is clearly a matter for the police too.
His is nothing.
What a disgrace.
|May-01-15|| ||WannaBe: <whiteshark> I'd use the latest android, much bigger battery and don't have to worry about carrying spare parts. =))|
|May-03-15|| ||Volmac: Cheating is becoming a really serious issue for me. Playing internet chess is increasingly less fun since I sometimes get crushed in games played with Stockfish's first recommendation moves. Playing with a free or guest account is absolutely risk-free. It's far too easy to cheat in internet chess. The problem is that I can see this behaviour spread to serious OTB-tournaments in the near future.|
|May-22-15|| ||mrandersson: Volmac is right i have stopped playing internet chess for a few years now its no fun and after people blitz out moves then all a sudden..Stop and boom u lose.|
People like to see high grades on there names and its a goal for them.
|Jun-12-15|| ||dumbgai: <Volmac> and <mrandersson>: I agree, sometimes I'll play multiple games with someone around my own rating (1700-1800) for a few games, and then suddenly they'll start playing perfect moves for the next several games, crushing me in under 25 moves each time (without me having to blunder). But at least with these people you can report them and move on.|
The real killer for me was how often other people falsely accused me of cheating, when I just happened to play a nice tactic. Cheating has become so common that everyone just assumes everyone else is cheating, leading to a really toxic environment.
|Oct-11-15|| ||Caissanist: Nigalidze's not going to get banned for 15 years, that is what he would face for a second offense. For a first offense, the maximum ban is for three years. It's been six months now since he was caught, there has yet to be a ruling announced by FIDE.|
|Dec-24-15|| ||sonia91: Banned for 3 years and stripped of GM title: http://www.fide.com/component/conte...|
|Dec-26-15|| ||King Radio: A just punishment. If it is proven, they should throw the max penalty on anyone caught, no matter who it is.|
|Dec-26-15|| ||alexmagnus: I never understood the "stripping of the GM title" part of the punishment. I mean, see, three years later the ban is over - and, given his playng strength, he'll have no troubles getting his GM norms again. And during the ban he cannot play anyway, so the title is useless. What's the use of revoking the GM title then?|
|Dec-26-15|| ||King Radio: I suppose it's just something they can do. I do think the 3 year ban for first offense is too light, but that's the current rule. I'd be surprised if this was really his 'first offense' - first time getting caught, more likely. I'd be okay with a lifetime ban for those caught with irrefutable proof. |
I'm sure this garbage goes on more than anyone suspects at the less than top tier events. The more draconian the punishment for cheaters, the better.
|Dec-27-15|| ||manorchy: He'll be rebooted as IM Nigalidze in 2018.
Don't ever do it again.
