Default Topalov accused of Cheating to Win World Chess Championship

- Sam Sloan said:



World Chess Champ Topalov "Fraudster" - 2005-11-11

An unnamed participant in the World Chess Championship in San
Luis, Argentina, has accused Chess King Bulgarian Vesselin Topalov of
using unallowed measures to win the title, index.hu reported.

According to the article published on the site the allegations
remained secret because of "games behind the curtain." Such
allegations, however, are common for the chess world. It is not clear
who has raised the allegations against the Chess King, but this man
claims that during several games aide Ivan Cheparinov and manager
Silvio Danailov have helped Topalov.

The site reports that after each move of Topalov, Cheparinov has
used computer analysis of the game and has then secretly signaled the
chess king for the next move. Peter Leko has also voiced his
suspicions that Topalov has used unfair advantage by sitting on the
same place during the entire championship. FIDE however, has not
undertaken any measures due to lack of evidence.



OMG CONSPIRACY THEORY!!!
