World Chess Champion Carlsen Claims Niemann Cheated More Than He Admits

1 min read


Magnus Carlsen, the world chess champion, has accused Hans Niemann of cheating yet again and stated that he will never play against the American grandmaster again. Carlsen stated on social media that Niemann had “cheated more and more recently than he has publicly admitted,” citing their match at this year’s Sinquefield Cup as an example.

By defeating Carlsen, the 19-year-old Niemann caused a significant upset, and the world champion chose to retire from the competition. Carlsen has since accused the American of cheating during the game, which is supported by a number of other grandmasters.

Niemann previously admitted to cheating in non-competitive games but categorically denied cheating against Carlsen. Carlsen, on the other hand, stated that his behavior was “strange” during their match in St Louis and that he “was not even fully concentrating on the game.” “His overall improvement has been unusual, and throughout our game in the Sinquefield Cup, I had the sensation that he wasn’t nervous or even completely concentrating on the game in important places while outplaying me as black in a way that I believe only a handful of players can,” he stated.
