There may well be a pile-on against Niemann right now, or this might be the kind of evidence Magnus reckons he already has, but I've seen a couple of similar computer analyses of Niemann's games today like the below.

Suggests Niemann is on another level to anyone else, including Magnus.

It's easy to convince people with numbers but not many of us actually understand the analysis.

Correct. And not all 100% scores here are the same amazing play anyway.

Chess.com has released its report into the allegations, and said it believes Niemann has cheated in more than 100 matches on the site. I think Niemann admitted cheating when he was 12 and 16. But Chess.com figures show at least 80 of those matches were in 2020. I can't see any more recent than that, and it also says it doesn't believe Niemann has cheated OTB.

Just another set of startling revelations.
