The software can choose the best moves
Although chess has been around for centuries, it has now entered a new level. The Internet and telephones made it possible for anyone to play with anyone at any time. Artificial intelligence gives players the opportunity to plan their moves before the start of the match, and later during the match.
Special chess software analyzes the available moves in real time and selects some of the best solutions. “Any chess program running on a mobile phone can show moves that are even better than the world champion.” – American grandmaster Maurice Ashley admitted in an interview with “The Wall Street Journal”.
Previously, people were cheated by going to the toilet
Technology began to face the best chess players in 1996, when the IBM “Deep Blue” computer beat Garry Kasparov twice. Over time, the chess engines helped the grandmasters improve their skills, but also made cheating easier. As a result, sites like chess.com that allow you to play chess online have developed methods to prevent cheating. Special technology detects the use of external programs that allow dirty play.
Before, players cheated in a different way – they did, among others suspiciously many breaks for a visit to the toilet to see the best solutions for the given situation on the phone. Not so long ago, in 2019, the Latvian grandmaster Igors Rausis was suspended by the organization managing chess for using a smartphone in the toilet during the game.
Sometimes it is enough to help with one move
The frequency of scams has increased the coronavirus pandemic – in November 2020 alone, chess.com reported that it had closed 18,000 due to unclean practices. player accounts. Among them were grandmasters.
“All you need is a sophisticated communication device” – adds Ashley. There are many ways – from nearly invisible earpieces to tiny devices that vibrate or buzz in a way that is only felt by the person wearing them. It can even be hidden in someone else’s shoe. With such an invention, it is enough for a third party to follow the game on a regular basis and send appropriate signals.
If someone is not caught red-handed, it is difficult to prove later that he cheated. At the highest level, players do not need to be handled. All it takes is one subtle move that will tip the tide in their favor. In practice, this means that the fraudster may only need help at key moments, not throughout the entire meeting.
