A big storm in the world of chess: World champion Magnus Carlsen claims that he suspects that the rising American star, Hans Niemann, cheats in competitions, in an unusual statement, which causes great echoes in the industry.

Carlsen, a five-time world champion, is considered one of the best chess players in history, and this week reignited his rivalry with Neiman, making serious accusations against him.



Carlsen made headlines last week when he retired from a match against 19-year-old Nyman after playing just one move.

He said on social media that his decision to do so was made to help "keep the game of chess alive".



"I know my actions have frustrated many in the chess community," the 31-year-old Carlsen wrote of his unusual retirement. And an existential threat to the game. So far I've only been able to speak with my actions, and those actions have clearly stated that I'm not ready to play chess with Neiman. I hope the truth about this matter comes out, whatever it is."

Carlsen added that he believes security measures designed to prevent player cheating should be strengthened and that he "strongly considered" pulling out of the last Cinquefield Cup when he learned that Schneiman had received a late invitation, before ultimately deciding to play.

Carlsen also noted that Neumann - who has admitted to cheating in online games in the past - has made a huge upgrade in his career and ranking and has developed in his chess recently, although, as he put it, he doesn't seem to be "totally focused" on the game.



"His progress on the board was remarkable, and throughout our match in the Cinquefield Cup I had the impression that he was not tense or even fully focused on the game in critical positions, beating me black in a way that I think only a handful of players can do. This game contributed to a change of perspective Mine," he wrote.



"We have to do something about cheating, and for my part, down the road, I don't want to play against people who have cheated repeatedly in the past, because I don't know what they are capable of in the future."



Carlsen did not elaborate on the methods he suspects Neman may have used to gain an unfair advantage, but online speculation raised suspicions that he uses a vibration mechanism and is aided by an external party that sends him signals about the most correct move, of course with the help of a computer program that assists.



Neiman of course denied the accusations of cheating, and even said that he was willing not only to go through any form of search to prove his innocence - but even added: "I have never cheated in a game above the board. If they want me to strip completely, I will do it."



Neiman has become a rising star, after jumping 250 steps in the world rankings in recent years, despite not having a coach.

After beating Carlsen this year, he broke his streak of 53 games without a loss.

"I guess it's embarrassing for the world champion to lose to me, I feel bad for him," he said.

Then the rumors and accusations started.

The network claimed that Neiman cheated with the help of an anal device, which sent him vibration signals about the right move he should make.

The one who joined this claim was Elon Musk, the famous billionaire.



Musk tweeted a paraphrase of a quote from the German philosopher: "Talent manages to hit a target no one can, a genius hits a target no one sees (because it's in his ass) - Schopenhauser."

Musk then deleted the tweet.

He also tweeted that "you can almost hear the sound of the rubber glove on the hand, searching before the chess game...", before deleting this tweet as well.



"I don't care. Because I know I'm clean," Neiman said, "You want me to play in a closed box, without electronic reception? I don't care. I'm here to win and that's my goal regardless."

By the way, many on the network were outraged by Carlsen's accusations, claiming that he is trying to destroy his young rival's career, and is making serious accusations, without proof.
