Nanaimo Chess Club players always try to stay one step ahead of the competition.

The club is resuming meetings twice a week after a long pandemic postponement.

“Local fans have suffered from the pandemic, as have many other players, but at least they had online competition,” noted a club press release. “But live play is what many gamers thrive on.”

The club meets Wednesdays from 4 p.m. at the MGM Restaurant and Mondays at 6 p.m. at the Kin Hut at Departure Bay Beach.

Long-time chess enthusiast Glen Beaudin said in the statement that he had a lot of people wanting to talk about chess during the pandemic due to the popularity of The Queen’s Gambit series on Netflix. He said some viewers viewed the series as depicting a “battle of the sexes”, but he disagreed.

“It was about how anyone, regardless of situation, is welcome to the world of live chess. It’s all about the game. The multi-award-winning series totally respects that.

Monday meetings have a $6 registration fee, while more informal Wednesday meetings have no registration fee, but tipping restaurant staff is encouraged.

Prince Albert I, chess lover

At this year’s celebrations for the 100th anniversary of Prince Albert I’s death, women shone with Pia Cramling who received the prestigious 2022 Prince Albert II Prize for her achievements in chess, including eight European Club Cups women with the Monte-Carlo Chess Club.

Everything goes back to the dawn of this century with Prince Albert I. In 1903, Prince Albert I offered the Prince’s Cup to the brilliant young chess player Harry Nelson Pillsbury, notably renowned for being able to play up to 22 simultaneous games blindfolded!

Indeed, Prince Andrey Dadian de Mingrelia and Jules Arnous de Rivière, nobles and chess lovers, also designed a master chess tournament which was held in Monte Carlo at the beginning of 1901.

Fast forward to 2022 with Monte Carlo hosting the world’s great female chess players at the Hermitage Hotel.

One of them will end up taking the place of the Norwegian Marcus Magnussan, World Champion. The closest he’s come so far is the legendary Judith Polgar who would take on any male grandmaster with relish. She played chess with passion from the age of four. She has broken into the World Top 10 well and paved the way for future women who see themselves as more than the equal of men.

The Sri Lankan team, including top-ranked national player Susal de Silva, who aspires to become the country’s first grandmaster, missed the vital opportunity to compete in the World Junior Chess Championships in Italy after the he Italian Embassy in Colombo has refused nominations for young chess players. for visa interviews Island Learns.

According to sources, requests from the Chess Federation of Sri Lanka, the Ministry of Sports and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to secure appointments for young chess players and their parents to meet with Sri Lankan visa officers Italian Embassy fell on deaf ears.

The Sri Lankan team comprising Nalanda College prodigy de Silva, Nabil Nazar and Desandi Gamage was supposed to take part in the FIDE Junior (U-20) World Chess Championship 2022 in Sardinia, Italy from October 11-23.

The Sri Lanka Chess Federation (September 19) had forwarded the documents required to obtain visas following receipt of invitations from the sport’s world governing body, while the Ministry of Sports (September 21) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (September 22) also sent relevant correspondence requesting expedited appointments.

One of the parents speaking to The Island said they were mistreated by embassy officials during their visit to the Colombo office. With two members of the team returning to Sri Lanka on September 19 after attending the World Youth Chess Championship in Romania, the parents visited the Italian Embassy on September 22.

“On September 22, we were told that there was an audit going on at the embassy. We were asked to come on September 26th. On the 26th, after checking the documents, the visa officer informed us that we had to provide the applications for the three players as minors and that all the parents had to come and sign a document. Although I informed them that the parents were available on site and that we could do it within 30 minutes, the agent asked us to come the next day. Again on September 28 we visited the Embassy. After two hours, the security personnel returned the application form asking us to come on September 29 saying that the visa officer had informed us that they could not process applications that day,” the official said. one of the parents.

Our attempts to contact Italian embassy officials yesterday proved futile.

When asked if there was any delay on his part in applying for visas for young players, Luxman Wijesuriya, the president of the Sri Lanka Chess Federation said he had followed the usual procedure and that the federation had never failed to obtain visas for players on any previous occasion. “We applied for the event before the deadline and applied for visas after receiving invitations,” Wijesuriya said.

Herald Reporter

A national chess team from prisons across the country will take part in the 2nd Intercontinental Online Chess Championships for Prisoners tomorrow.

The Zimbabwe team, which is the only African team taking part in the championships, was beaten to pole position by their fellow teammates from Mongolia in the inaugural championships held last year.

Speaking from Chikurubi maximum security prison in Harare, the team’s coach, who is also one of the country’s top chess players.
Rank 1 officer Cyril Chigodo said his charges were eager to go.

“The championship is part of the ‘Chess for Freedom’ program which was launched in May 2021 and has become an essential part of social initiatives where chess is used to educate and empower various groups in society,” he said. .

Chigodo said she hoped to have a women’s team in the next tournament as she didn’t have adequate tools when preparing for it.

The first Intercontinental Prisoner Championships were held in October 2021 with 41 teams representing 30 countries. This time the teams have doubled to 85, of which 12 women’s teams and 14 youth teams consisting of four players with unlimited substitutes will play in the group stages.

The prisoners are divided into groups and will first compete in a round robin chess tournament. The top two teams from each pool will advance to the Championship Round on October 14.

“We trained well and now we are ready to face the other teams. Last time we were beaten by Mongolia and this time we are taking home the trophy,” he said.

Inmate and team player Jeff Musemwa said while he was ready for tomorrow’s game, his call was for businesses and the public to support the team by providing clocks, desktop computers and laptop.

Another player, Nhamo Mutemamombe, who is serving a 14-year prison sentence, said chess has become a way for him to beat stress.

“I learned chess when I started serving my prison sentence. I find it helps me de-stress and is a good path towards my rehabilitation,” Mutemamombe said.

Zimbabwe Chess Federation administrator Kudakwashe Sibanda said he was working hand in hand with Zimbabwe’s prisons and correctional service to promote chess as a means of rehabilitating prisoners.

Chess players are convinced the anal beads controversy is causing more online cheating https://ajedrezenmexico.org/chess-players-are-convinced-the-anal-beads-controversy-is-causing-more-online-cheating/ Thu, 29 Sep 2022 18:15:00 +0000 https://ajedrezenmexico.org/chess-players-are-convinced-the-anal-beads-controversy-is-causing-more-online-cheating/ Remember the anal beads deception controversy?

Remember the anal beads deception controversy? Although I would like to forget it, it turns out that a lot of people still think about it. Some chess players have reported an increase in computer-assisted cheating in Chess.com matches since the Hans Niemann story broke. One gamer has dubbed the recent increase in cheaters as the “Hans Effect.”

Two weeks ago, a highly publicized controversy rocked the chess world. World Champion Magnus Carlsen lost to Grandmaster Hans Niemann and Carlsen eventually withdrew from the tournament. His sudden exit and the level difference was so drastic that onlookers began accusing Niemann of cheating. Chess streamer Hikaru “GMHikaru” Nakamura pointed out that Niemann previously admitted to cheating on chess.com as a youngster, hence the current controversy.

Since the contestants played live, it’s hard to pinpoint a potential cheating method (one wild theory involves anal beads). But you don’t need any…er…special equipment to cheat online chess matches, and Chess.com players who participate in online matchmaking are increasingly convinced that more and more people are cheating.

If you are interested in “how to cheat in chess” on google trends, you’ll see a significant increase in interest in the weeks following the infamous game of chess, with searches doubling during the month compared to the rest of the year. Clearly, whatever really happens during the matches is on everyone’s mind.

Screenshot: Google / Kotaku

This is somewhat consequential for Chess.com users because they can lose more points for losing matches against a lower-ranked player (in one case, Chess.com points refunded to a player who lost in a suspicious match). Kotaku reached out to Chess.com to ask if there is a noticeable increase in cheating and what steps their monitors are taking to ensure fair gaming.

How do chess players find out that someone is cheating? Several players posted on Reddit saying their opponent suddenly drastically improved in the middle of a game.

Said Quay_Z, “I’ve had so many online blitz games lately where the opponent is obviously cheating, since Hans’ stuff started to pick up steam. I had like 3 people banned in the last 2 days. Ridiculous.”

I_chosen_a_name discussed players’ poor performance and then coming back for a perfect win, adding, “And then 3 days later you get this email from chess.com and you get your points back.”

“What hurts the most”, says soghff“is when you have a better position or your opponent makes a mistake on a pawn or piece, then goes on to take 2-4 minutes of “thinking”, then suddenly starts playing perfect motor moves after 5 seconds of thinking about every move. Like are you really so unruly and helpless?

Another felt it was suspicious that someone was taking the same period of time on each move. But the vast majority of victims have checked their opponent’s play history. Several perfect matches in a row was enough to raise red flags for a player. Another noticed that his opponent only lost against new accounts.

On the other hand, some players say they have been wrongly accused of cheating. A Reddit user was accused of cheating because their opponent had blundered a first shot. Another mentioned that people had accused in other games once they have reached a “flow state”.

Several cheaters were just annoyed that newcomers were so bad at cheating. “Everyone cheats online,” said a player. “The only difference is that some are smart cheaters and some are stupid cheaters.”

Are they imagining it or is it actually happening? While not every instance is a true cheat, there is plenty of evidence that hijackings are taking place. Scroll.in reported this morning on the increase in apparent cheating, speaking to Grandmaster RB Ramesh. “It’s widely believed that many engage in cheating online,” he told the outlet, “especially at the youth level, where the stakes aren’t high.” He goes on to say that during the Covid lockdowns online gambling has become more mainstream, with big cash prizes, adding: “As a result what is happening, even some professional gamers, not many, some professional gamers s indulge in it. This therefore becomes a major issue. »

Chess.com himself published an article about cheating yesterday, beginning with the statement: “Cheating is the dirty not-so-secret of chess.” They go on to explain that they close 800 extraordinary accounts a day due to cheating, and that 6% of support tickets are related to the topic.

We contacted a world-renowned expert on cheating in chess, Dr. Kenneth Regan of the University at Buffalo, State University of New York, to ask if he had observed a recent increase in accusations of cheating. . “I hadn’t heard of a spike in general player ranks,” he said. Kotaku, “but that doesn’t surprise me.” Seeming to cast doubt on the veracity of such a spike, he adds: “One thing that has been magnified is all the pseudoscientific ways of detecting cheating.”

In the live game, cheating is still exceptionally marginal, explains the professor. “The previous tournament player instance count rate is variously quoted between 1 in 10,000 and 1 in 5,000 and that’s how I feel.” But he adds that it’s considerably higher online. “The prior rate is 100x – 200x higher, 1% to 2%, lower in heavily controlled high profile events but higher in school events – for the latter, note the figure of Sarah Longson two years ago.”

Wonderfully, Dr. Regan also linked us to a TEDx talk he gave in 2014, in which he “put the ways people had cheated up to that date at in-person chess to a rhyme by Dr. Seuss”. He then adds, “and actually forgot to deliver the verse ‘Some had computers in their shoes / or hid them, hid them, in the toilets’.”

If nothing else, the wider chess scandal definitely shines a light on more high-level cheaters, with Niemann’s Grandmaster trainer now also accused of admitting he used AI in the past to help him choose moves. And while the pros probably do it, chances are the average people are tempted to cheat as well.

On Friday, India’s Pranav Anand and AR Ilamparthi became champions in the Open Under-16 and Under-14 categories at the World Youth Chess Championship.

Top seed Anand, who on Thursday became the country’s 76th grandmaster, scored nine points in 11 rounds to emerge as the clear winner. He was half a point ahead of the rest of the peloton.

Anand’s compatriot M Pranesh, who was the second seed, finished third with eight points and three more. Anand went unbeaten through 11 rounds and recorded seven wins apart from four draws. He drew his 11th and final game against Frenchman Droin Augustin after scoring against Armenian Emin Ohanyan in round 10.

Pranesh, meanwhile, has recorded six wins and four draws. However, a loss at the hands of Ohanyan in the sixth round hurt his title shots.

Like Anand, Ilamparthi was half a point ahead of the rest of the field with 9.5 points in 11 laps. Although he lost to Ukrainian Artem Berin in the fourth round, he won nine games and drew one to claim the top prize.

In the Under-18 Open event, Sohan Kamotra took 14th place with 7 points while S Harshad (6.5 points) had to settle for 24th place.

In girls, Mrittika Mallick finished fourth in the under-14 category with 8 points. Additionally, Anupam M Sreekumar and HG Pragnya secured seventh and eighth places respectively. In the women’s under-18 event, S Kanishka with 7.5 points took sixth place while Rakshitta Ravi finished eighth, also with the same number of points.
