Chess.com , an online chess platform, has banned 19-year-old Hans Moke Niemann accused of cheating. Niemann’s recent defeat of five-time world chess champion Magnus Carlsen sparked allegations of cheating, but there is no evidence to support the allegations. Niemann previously admitted in an interview that he had cheated twice in non-combat games on the Chess.com platform, but both times were underage, 12 and 16 years old, he explained that he just wanted to get Higher ranks play against stronger players. He stressed that he never cheated in actual combat. Chess.com says it has evidence that contradicts Niemann’s statements about the amount and severity of cheating on the platform. There is currently no confirmed evidence that Niemann cheated against Carlsen.
