  1. Nine months have passed, and Hans is still a nobody. This is certain proof.

  2. Until he plays without anal beads and he will allow us to check… that ass is cheating! :p

  3. the fact that hans never explained his games / moves but just says "chess speaks for itself" is evidence enough that he's really likely cheating. and if he's not cheating he should play against magnus again but with 100% evidence he's not cheating – let's see his accuracy then

  4. I’m curious if anyone has done an analysis of Carlsen’s moves in that game against his historical games. Surely it would be easy to determine a change in his patterns if he cheated.

  5. They did this on It's always sunny in Philadelphia making fun of how far fetched the idea is just take the L

  6. Mate your video title is misleading. There is no evidence of scandal, nor was it big enough to be called biggest and lastly I could not see anything explained beyond what was already publicly known so…

  7. Explained? When? Where? What? Did he cheat or did he not? And how did he do it? Nothing is explained here.

  8. If it's anal beans. We have to give him the win. 😂

  9. Am i the only one playing this on x 1.25 and thinking it could still be faster 😂

  10. не пойман, не вор ..)

  11. I'm confused. Did Hans Niemann cheat or not? Is there a conclusion? Maybe I'm naive. I know nothing about chess but how can Hans cheat? Was there someone in the audience giving him hand signals? I love anal beads as much as the next guy but I don't think beads had anything to do with it.

  12. Han’s actual ability is nowhere near that rating.

  13. NO ONE plays 100%, no one. Do you have any idea what the odds are? And to do it multiple times? It’s not possible. Everyone knows he cheated lol. I literally don’t know anyone who believes he didn’t. They’re only quiet because Hans threatened a 100 million lawsuit. That’s it.

  14. LOL the public narrative didn't change sides. It's quite fishy to have that accuracy over a long span. And even when Hans admitted he cheated only twice in his games he lied about it. Hans never been HIM but he suddenly had the greatest increase in ELO in history of chess of super GMs. The narrative of the video is obviously far from being objective just like an white washing ad for Hans. sorry but complete TRASH.

  15. magnus made a weird move he neveer did.

    his opponent: im prepared for this.

    ,,,magnus elo 3000 i guess its a bit sus you played instncly move a piece like stockfish while claiming you prepared for it,

    anal beads.

    chess is wild.

  16. Hans looks like an actual Bond villian.

  17. He even looks like a cheat. He's surly and a bit of a slob… not traits you associate with elite players.

  18. If he did use a vibrating butt plug to win. I would imagine after all those vibrations stimulating his prostate Hand would’ve absolutely came in his shorts. Check that mama underwear. Game over!

  19. “This one time at chess camp. I stuck a butt plug up my ass” – Hans Niemann

  20. What does the dried out fish have to say about it?

  21. That Hans is a real pain in the ass.

  22. first of all, why would a large event invite someone who cheated before?

  23. Bobby Fischer definitely will hate Hans, and probably like Magnus. Maybe Ding too

  24. Getting perfect accuracy against Magnus as black pieces made Nieman's whole day but actually beating him at the age of 19 made his hole weak.

  25. I PLAYED THIS VIDEO IN 1.25 SPEED SO I CAN LISTEN TO THIS GUY SPEKING NORMAL AND NOT THINK THAT HES IS IN SLOW MOTION

  26. Carlson is hand down the best ever. He got nothing to prove anymore. So when he points finger, it needs to be taken seriously.

  27. BAGAGAGAAAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAGGAGAAHHA ANAL BEADS😂😂😂

  28. I don't think he cheated, otherwise he would have been directly accused of cheating. I think magnus has gotten into slump. He is frustated. But, He will return soon in form. It happens to all players.

    Just my personal thoughts.

  29. Imagine while playing your anal beads, start glitching 😂

  30. Well he only cheated twice, when he was looking to “rapidly enhance his rating”.. you know, because 2 matches is all it takes.. and it was only because he was looking to “play stronger players”..he only had to cheat because the players were too weak..👌scumbag

  31. You can see by the way he is walking and by the rush he's in, his butt hurts from so much vibrating.

  32. 9 minutes and 13 seconds of continuous click bait.

  33. Some Brilliant Moves Computers Can't seen
    ..it maybe a Good Move, But In Chess, Destiny will decide if You Win or Lose, Magnus Lose with a Blunder too

  34. I would imagine that when Magnuss plugged the game into his own top chess engine, he found out the Hans Niemann was playing at like 99% accuracy… FYI Hikaru Nakamura Only plays at 90-92% on average, and he is a 2800 rated player on Magnus's level.
    Hans however, was under 2700, and that game was played at least on a 2900 to 3000 ELO level.
    That is what got Mangus's attention and why he withdrew. He sees someone playing on a higher level than He did during his 125 game streak in 2018-2020, and he was like "WHAT?"

  35. Magnus just got mad cus he lost, sore loser😂😂😂

  36. Magnus made clear errors (errors for a seasoned GM anyway) on move 39 –instead of B-d6 he should try Rd7xb7, and then the fatal move 42 where he played R-d7 when he needed R-f4 to stay in the game, with playing 42) R-d7 Magnus ultimately loses both king-side pawns and the game as he cannot stop the two black king-side pawn advance… reminiscent of Capablanca's and Karpov's crushing endgames

  37. Magnus made clear errors (errors for a seasoned GM anyway) on move 39 –instead of B-d6 he should try Rd7xb7, and then the fatal move 42 where he played R-d7 when he needed R-f4 to stay in the game, with playing 42) R-d7 Magnus ultimately loses both king-side pawns and the game as he cannot stop the two black king-side pawn advance… reminiscent of Capablanca's and Karpov's crushing endgames

  38. So…. there isn't even a reason to suspect Hans cheated – other then to conclude he should not be able to beat the champ..
