(dpa) In the case of the Norwegian world champion Magnus Carlsen’s allegations of cheating against his American opponent Hans Niemann, the world chess association Fide has set up a commission of inquiry. The portal “T-online” reported on Thursday, citing the German official Klaus Deventer. Accordingly, in the coming days, a three-person committee from the association’s fair play commission will start investigations. It would be determined in “two different directions,” said the anti-cheating officer of the German Chess Federation.
