|Aug-19-11|| ||polarmis: Feller responds to the cheating allegations (though it's clear he's decided not to discuss the details while things are still being handled by the courts...): |
|Aug-19-11|| ||Domdaniel: So ('this') Feller gets to play in the French championships because he's appealing? Right.|
|Aug-19-11|| ||Gregor Samsa Mendel: <Dom>--
Some might say that this Feller is rather appealing.
|Aug-19-11|| ||polarmis: <Domdaniel: So ('this') Feller gets to play in the French championships because he's appealing? Right.>|
Something like that - it seems he won an appeal, or at least the court suspended the sentence pending another hearing: http://www.chessvibes.com/reports/f... It's hard to follow French jurisprudence, especially when translated by Google :)
He's supposed to be playing in the World Cup as well.

|Jul-31-12|| ||PhilFeeley: Details of the decision also on Chessbase: http://chessbase.com/newsdetail.asp...|
|Jul-31-12|| ||TheFocus: His nickname is Jolly Good.|
|Aug-20-12|| ||brankat: S.Feller got caught cheating in October of 2010. Full 3 years after he had won a GM title, and had had his most successful season, so far. One has to wonder whether there had been any cheating then, too.|
|Aug-05-13|| ||LIFE Master AJ: I wonder also ... when did he start cheating ... someone (not me) who has the time and energy should research a few of his games to determine when he started cheating and how many of his games match chess engines ...|
see also (the page for) Borislav Ivanov and Jens Kotainy.
|Aug-05-13|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Also - one (former) mayor in Italy was banned (for life?) for cheating and using a chess engine ... seems to be a lot of this going around nowadays.|
|Aug-16-13|| ||LIFE Master AJ: He became an IM AND a GM in the same year (2007) ... also French Junior Champion the same year. (One wonders if he was already cheating back then.) |
Bloody shame, too. He might be a good player, but now he has forever tarnished his name with this stupidity ...
|Apr-10-14|| ||perfidious: (Look Out For) The Cheater:
|May-21-14|| ||zanzibar: Well, he was qualified to play in FIDE events in the past, and presumably after serving his disciplinary period will be eligible to play again in the future...|
So shouldn't FIDE keep his card active?
He card has disappeared, which can be confusing. Presumably the FIDE Flags were invented for these sort of purposes (and not just to record redundantly record "w" for "F" players).
|Jun-01-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Yes, it appears S. Feller has been deleted from the FIDE database.|
I guess he will be returned when his time (on suspension) is up.
OR ... one wonders if this is permanent???
|Jun-01-14|| ||Jim Bartle: Or perhaps he doesn't want to come back. He'll probably be shunned by other players.|
|Jun-01-14|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Possibly ... I am sure that, if he came back, that he would be dogged by this for the rest of his career.|
I wonder what he is doing right now?
|Jun-02-14|| ||perfidious: Boning up with his silicon squeeze, I am sure.|
|Apr-20-15|| ||Annie K.: Feller's suspension should be ending in a few days, this May 1st, I believe? Let's see if he'll be back...|
|May-07-15|| ||MissScarlett: <Dear Mr. Feller
We refer to the decision made that you should hand back the prize money and the medal you received from the 2010 Chess Olympiad. This you have not done and at the Presidential Board held in Chengdu April 27th 2015, it was decided that should you not send the money and the medal back by the 7th of May 2015, that proceedings will be taken against you.
Meanwhile, your suspension will remain in place until a final decision has been made.
He handed them back:
|May-21-15|| ||zanzibar: Could an editor please add his FIDE card?
|Apr-07-16|| ||dumbgai: Looks like he's playing actively again and maintaining his low-2600s rating, albeit mostly against weaker players.|
|May-04-16|| ||waustad: He'll be playing in Germany very soon: http://chess-results.com/tnr211486....|
|Oct-30-17|| ||Richard Taylor: Why not allow cheating. I think that we can move to a system of chess which could be like having open book exams. Now points could be allocated for the most sophisticated interpretations of the 'lines given' on a device (supplied if, like myself a player doesn't possess a cell phone or whatever: but if a computer is used, extra time could be subtracted (not too drastically but enough to keep it competitive if the other player, possibly the 'stronger', opts not to use his or her computer at that point. The game and rating points etc could be decided both by the result and or by the accumulated points during the game (percentage advantage or disadvantage at any time and also extra points for interesting even if unsound ideas, and for great ideas (more points) but this to be offset if bad errors are made...The rating points gained by a player using a computer (depending on his or her rating) to be assessed by the intersection of the result and the average points during the game. But those who play without a computer or play less of the game with one, to receive compensating if not winning points. All these factors to be fed into a good computer and a report and analysis of the game to be made. |
Also a submitted analysis and discussion of the game could be studied by chessologist professors and the situation adjusted....
Clearly with the increasing cunning of computers secreting themselves inside peoples's sleeves, inside delicate and unnameable body areas, and information flashing about at near light speed we have to give in and either return to classical chess with adjournments and or abandon the concept of wining and losing (a childish and cruel notion) and allow points....indeed, if someone can show great cunning and wit in outwitting or near outwitting (more points for a fraud discovered after the 'tournament' as this "confession" to be allowed, so that the so-called confession would prove the cleverness in concealment cunning use etc etc added to interpretative ability)...however an "honest" player (there are and never will be any) to be also given compensatory points adn so on....this my sound complex but it would get rid of the present elitist and cruel system of wins and losses per se and lead to a more intelligent and philosophically subtle as well as less cruel and egoistical, and amusing form of Chess
....some new name perhaps, N-Com-Chess might do as a working title....
|Oct-30-17|| ||Richard Taylor: Aside from the above insights. I see Sebastien Feller as a hero. A man after my own deepest anarchistic inclinations. Good on him! Long may he cheat! |
Hopefully, the combined and long time actions of these will undermine the perfidy of FIDE and intiate an new form of 'Open Book Chess'. A new Era of chess.
Long live Feller!!
