I saw one too this week where the guy claims to have shot the world’s largest dear, but he won’t allow anyone to x-Ray the antlers (which I guess would allow to see if they’re real or not), and he claims all of the meat rotted so there’s nothing to test for DNA. Everyone says he’s full of shit

With an Earpiece Connected to an Unseen Person Who is Visually Watching & Making the Same Moves on a Computer and relaying the Best Next Move!! Just Like Obama/Biden Moves!!

How does one cheat in chess?

It sounds like if it is online, cheaters will use a computer algorithm to tell them what move to make. I suppose one would need an ear piece or someone communicating the move to make. In that case, the accomplice would be using the computer algorithm and simply passing on the move to the cheater by earpiece or maybe hand signals or something.

The article goes into more details as well.

How can you cheat at chess?

Supposedly this guy is known for online cheating. It's been suggested that for in person chess he has some way to relay the plays to a computer (or maybe a team of his?) and get the best possible response.

I would have guessed something to that effect, but really, if playing online that might work, but it seems impractical to setup in person playing. so much that it wouldn't be worth while.

Ehh, there are five figure purses in some of these major chess events these days. Also, the World Champion gets $750k, and the runner-up gets $500k. There's also a fair bit of online viewership for good, entertaining chess players. All in all, it could very well be worth smuggling in a small electronic device.

Damn... I chose the wrong career path. (More likely I'd wind up with a "will play chess for food" sign eventually)

I didn't realize there was that kind of money involved, definitely enough that people would gamble on.
