Magnus Carlsen brands US teen a CHEAT amid vibrating anal beads claims

World chess champion Magnus Carlsen brands US teen nemesis a CHEAT and refuses to ever play him again amid accusations he uses vibrating anal beads to win matches

  • Magnus Carlsen, the world’s No. 1 chess player, branded US teen Hans Niemann a cheat after alleging the grandmaster used anal beads to win matches 
  • Carlsen resigned from a September 19 game after one move amid rumors his opponent has previously used an anal sex toy to cheat 
  • Neimann, 19, lost in the quarterfinals on Thursday, knocking out any chance for a rematch against he and Carlsen, 31 

The world’s No. 1 chess player Magnus Carlsen branded US teen Hans Niemann a cheat after alleging the fellow grandmaster used vibrating anal beads to win matches. 

Carlsen, 31, said on Monday that his decision to abruptly resign from the Sinquefield Cup tournament against Niemann after only one move on September 19 was a  ‘professional decision’ to preserve the game of chess. 

‘I know that my actions have frustrated many in the chess community,’ Carlsen wrote in a statement. ‘I’m frustrated. I want to play chess. I want to continue to play chess at the highest level in the best events.’ 

‘I believe that cheating in chess is a big deal and an existential threat to the game.’

He later added: ‘So far I have only been able to speak with my actions, and those actions have stated clearly that I am not willing to play chess with Niemann. I hope that the truth on this matter comes out, whatever it may be.’ 

Meanwhile, Niemann has continued to deny the cheating allegations.

‘I have never cheated in an over-the-board game. If they want me to strip fully naked, I will do it,’ he previously said.

Carlsen went on in the statement about the need to enhance security measures on the game to avoid cheating. 

The chess star admitted that he ‘strongly considered’ withdrawing from the Sinquefield Cup when he heard Niemann was invited last minute. 

‘I ultimately chose to play,’ he wrote. 

Carlsen said that he noticed Niemann wasn’t ‘fully concentrating on the game’ but was able to excel. 

‘His over the board progress has been unusual, and throughout our game in the Sinquefield Cup 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. This game contributed to changing my perspective,’ Carlsen wrote. 

Footage of the tournament showed Niemann and Carlsen playing for less than a minute before the world campion unexpectedly resigned. 

‘We must do something about cheating, and for my part going forward, I don’t want to play against people that have cheated repeatedly in the past, because I don’t know what they are capable of doing in the future,’ Carlsen wrote.

Arkady Dvorkovich, the president of the International Chess Federation (FIDE), said in a Friday statement that he wasn’t with Carlsen’s behavior in withdrawing from the Sinquefield Cup and quitting his match against his 19-year-old opponent.

Dvorkovich took aim at the world Carlsen, saying the 31-year-old Norwegian has a ‘moral responsibility’ because he is ‘viewed as a global ambassador of the game.’

‘His actions impact the reputation of his colleagues, sportive [sport-related] results, and eventually can be damaging to our game. We strongly believe that there were better ways to handle this situation,’ he said.

The statement did not ‘specify’ what situation they were referring to, although it is likely the sensational claim about the anal beads, which Neimann has denied.

He is accused of using a vibrating, remotely-controlled sex toy to gain an advantage over Carlsen by getting an accomplice to buzz the device to guide him into making better moves.

The president said the game’s governing body is looking creating a group of ‘specialists’ who will eradicate cheating from FIDE events.

‘FIDE is prepared to task its Fair Play commission with a thorough investigation of the incident,’ Dvorkovich said.

The chess body boss said further evidence would be needed before any such probe could begin.

Neimann lost in the quarterfinals Thursday, eliminating the possibility of a dramatic rematch between the cheating-plagued prodigy and Carlsen. 

The teenager is allegedly cheating through the use of remote-controlled vibrating anal beads to communicate with his coach, Maxim Dlugy. 

Neimann’s coach was banned from Chess.com in 2017 after allegedly cheating on one of the titles, and was the first to suspect Borislav Ivanov of cheating with a device in his shoes in 2013.

Dlugy, former chess prodigy, was also jailed on charges of attempting to embezzle $9 million from a magnesium plant he ran in Russia, but he was later cleared of all charges. 

Carlsen was quizzed on his thoughts on the bizarre claims of cheating by a reporter in Oslo.

‘Unfortunately, I cannot particularly speak on that but people can draw their own conclusions and they certainly have,’ Carlsen said. ‘I have to say I’m very impressed by Niemann’s play and I think his mentor Maxim Dlugy must be doing a great job.’

With Neimann’s recent loss, Carlsen will now go on to play Vincent Keymer in the semifinals, and if he wins, he will either face Liem or Argun Erigaisi. 

Niemann has furiously denied using vibrating anal beads to receive tips on how to play. The teenage star said: ‘I have never cheated in an over-the-board game. If they want me to strip fully naked, I will do it.

‘I don’t care. Because I know I am clean. You want me to play in a closed box with zero electronic transmission, I don’t care. I’m here to win and that is my goal regardless.’

But critics note that his Elo rating, which gauges the strength of chess players, shot to 2701 after his victory over Carlsen, up from just 2484 in January 2021, a staggering rise that some find unlikely.

And Niemann has admitted to cheating in online chess tournaments when he was a child, saying that he deeply regrets it.

In one online match when he was 12, he says one of his friends brought over an iPad loaded with a ‘chess engine’ program that offered the most likely route to a win.

The person Niemann was playing couldn’t see him, and so was unaware of what was unfolding.
