So, I used to be an avid chess player, so this story caught my eye. It made me wonder, exactly how would a person cheat in chess, especially at this level. The dude doesn't elaborate on his accusation, but seems pretty convinced.

It would be almost impossible in over the board chess. Although at the end of the article the Neiman guy did admit to cheating twice in his youth. Also said he never cheated in over the board chess. Not sure what kind of format he cheated on. Had to be something remote.
