Hans Niemann Chess Cheating
The 19-year-old, labelled a cheat by Magnus Carlsen, is due to play for the US title in a 14-grandmaster field including three of the world top 10.
Next week, when the 19-year-old who world champion Magnus Carlsen has publicly called a cheater faces off against the American top in the $250,000 US championship at St Louis, which has its first round (of 13) on Wednesday, three of the top 10 grandmasters will be put to the test.
Niemann will be returning to the “capital of chess”, Sinquefield Cup, where a few weeks ago he defeated Carlsen in the third round.
“Throughout our game I had the impression that he wasn’t tense or even fully concentrating on the game in critical positions, while outplaying me as black in a way I think only a handful of players can do,” said Carlsen. “This game contributed to me changing my perspective.”
