  OhioChessFan: Is Tata Steel a step forward in the quality of opposition he's faced?
Oct-22-12  waustad: He's been the opponent of two players who have been caught cheating. See:


It is also interesting that the most famous player involved in a cheating event was also called Sebastian. The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune:

Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: He was just disqualified, German B league, for using an engine through his cell phone.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <H#M> U R kiddin, right?
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: its over at chessbase. He was in the loo too many times, and the TD asked him to hand over his cell phone.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <H#M> You mixed it with his opponent. Dets here: S Siebrecht vs F Bindrich, 2012
