In the Dubai Open Chess Competition 2015, Chess Grandmaster Gaioz Nigalidze has been captured cheating using an application on his iPod touch, and as an apparent repercussion, has actually been banned from the event.
Gaioz Nigalidze, from Georgia, is the winner of the Georgian championship 2013 and 2014, though the 25-year-old’s surge via the ranks started in 2007, which also occurs to be the year the first iPhone was released. Coincidence?
Competing in the 17th annual Dubai Open Chess Event this year, Nigalidze was captured after his opponent came to be questionable of his strange habits that had a pattern to it. Baseding on the Georgian’s equivalent, “Nigalidze would quickly reply to my actions then literally go to the commode,” further including that “I noticed that he would certainly consistently check out the same toilet partition, which was strange, considering that two other partitions just weren’t inhabited.”
Naturally, the officials were alerted, and after examination of the restroom cubicle, located an iPod touch put behind the commode, wrapped in bathroom tissue. The iPod was running a chess application specificing the very best actions that could possibly be made, as it mirrored the video game that was being played at then. When confronted with this proof Nigalidze entirely rejected any understanding of the device by claiming that he did not own it. Certainly his case was debunked as soon as the authorities found that the iPod was also logged into a social networks account under Nigalidze’s qualifications, in addition to the chess application that was analyzing the game.
It’s still uncertain which app the device was running, and along with that, some sources are suggesting that the gizmo being utilized to rip off was an iPhone, however from the image (here) you could plainly view that it’s an iPod touch.
As for Nigalidze, his occupation and previous efficiencies have actually merely been tossed under the microscope, especially his 2013 and 2014 Georgian championships and also the Al Ain Classic champion that was held last December. If tested guilty, Nigalidze is considering a suspension “for 3 years from all sanctioned tournaments, and up to 15 years in situation of a repeat crime.”
