What follows is the second comment, by Brian Lafferty, made by readers in reply to the article at Chessbase, Carlsen’s public statement: “I believe that Niemann has cheated more” (https://en.chessbase.com/post/carlsen-statement-on-niemann/1#discuss)
No substance whatsoever to Carlsen’s accusation. His belief is meaningless absent concrete factual proof that Niemann cheated otb in St. Louis.
NOTE to Carlsen: You do not need Niemann’s permission to set forth factual proof that Niemann cheated otb against you, if you have relevant facts as opposed to subjective feeling about Niemann’s demeanor during the otb game in St. Louis. Perhaps Niemann was just acting to psych you out. If so, it clearly worked.
All Carlsen has presented is supposition and suspicion regarding otb cheating by Niemann in St. Louis. Carsen (sic) is a disgrace to his championship.
