It honestly doesn’t matter much if Hans really cheated way more than he admitted to on chess dot com. If it turns out he didn’t cheat in the Sinquefield Cup, then this whole thing was blown way out of proportion and Magnus mishandled it. This is also Ben Finegold’s take on it.

I dunno, if it turns out he regularly cheats online, wouldn’t you just never want to play against him?

Is it that you assume OtB is different, because of the security?

Or do you assume innocence in every individual event?

Or is the idea that you need to catch him in the act?

Or just that Carlsen shouldn’t be playing judge?
