Is chess a sport?

Anyone following the Hans Niemann / Magnus Carlsen scandal?

Is Hans a big cheating bastard, or is Magnus trying to unjustly damage his career?

It's excellent fun, his latest rage quit after two moves was exceptionally good. But I'd be inclined to trust his instincts given he's an expert and knows what is going down in the moment, so that guy is blatantly cheating with anal beads, and his comical interviews after all but confirm it.

The people defending him are mostly trying to use data and statistical analysis as evidence, alongside their cringeworthy woke "innocent until proven guilty" virtue signal woe is hans bullshit, but they have no idea what they're doing with that because they're chess players and not research scientists, so their opinions are devoid of proper mathematics. I guess chess is what people with autism do when it never occurred to them to study science.

In isolation, this may look very fishy indeed, but before we jump to the beckoning anal bead computer shaped implication of this bell curve, let’s look at his peers.

As we can see, the expected results and real results in Elo gains vary wildly amongst this group of upcoming players, and Niemann’s result is, by comparison, less dramatic.





Awww bless their little cotton data science hearts.
