Chess player banned after cheating December 30, 2006

Posted by daveintexas in Current Events, stuff.

He had sewn a Bluetooth into his hat, and friends relayed computer generated moves back to him.

Another Indian.  Tushar, what is going on here?  First the runner and now this?

The player, Umakant Sharma, had logged rating points at a rapid pace in the last 18 months and also qualified for the national championship, arousing the suspicion of officials and bemusing rivals.

I wonder if he was on steroids?

UPDATE:  It’s old.

Indian Chess Player Busted For Using Hidden Bluetooth To Receive Computer-Calculated Moves

Heh. Ten year suspension for egregious cheating. Reuters notes this means he won’t face justice for any other violations he would have committed had he been playing for the next ten years, rather than being suspended. The world mourns….

Dave, they are just trying to compensate for the …. um…. shortcoming.

Shouldn’t you be worrying about more important things…such as not letting Iowa retake the lead at the end of the 3rd quarter?

If UT can’t beat these guys, we’re going to send you to the little kids table of the Big 12 North.
