After two unprecedented games in the career of the Norwegian grandmaster Magnus Carlsen, in which he lost and retired to the young American Hans Niemann, the chess world seems to be scandalized by a theory that at first sounded crazy but is taking flight with each indirect Carlsen statement: a trap based on the use of anal Chinese balls.
Although the unusual statement was made by tycoon Elon Musk, people from the chess world have set out to see how the trap would work.
And the details of the method surprise.

Where did Chinese balls come from?
The world chess champion, Magnus Carlsen, abandoned on Monday of last week, in two moves, his game in the Julius Baer Generation Cup tournament against the American Hans Niemann, the same rival to whom, two weeks ago, he lost in the Sinquefield Cup de San Luis (USA) in a game with a classic rhythm that led the Norwegian to withdraw from the tournament insinuating that the American had cheated.
The reunion of both players in this seventh tournament of the Champions Tour, which is played online, had aroused great expectation among the fans, after the enormous controversy that broke out with the abandonment of Carlsen in San Luisin face-to-face competition at a classical rhythm.
The Norwegian did not give clear explanations after his withdrawal from the Sinquefield Cup, but everyone understood that he was obeying his suspicions when he saw that his rival was playing at full speed against a rare variation of the nimzo-Indian that he had prepared expressly for that game. .
Niemann, number 49 in the world chess ranking, had defeated with black
Carlsen and ended the streak of games without losing that the world champion had extended to 53.
The American alleged that, by chance, he had reviewed that line a few hours before the game. “By some kind of miracle, I checked that line today. I don’t know why, it’s ridiculous but it was like that. I don’t understand why I looked at it, it’s ridiculous,” he said.
That was the first time they had met in classical chess and the two players shared first place in the tournament tied on 1.5 points after getting a win and a draw. That victory also allowed Niemann to overcome the 2,700-point barrier in the world ranking for the first time. “It must be embarrassing for the world champion to lose against an idiot like me,” the American commented then.
The craziest of the rumors has to do with Niemann inserting a microchip into his anus, something that drew the attention of Tesla owner, billionaire Elon Musk, who adapted a quote attributed to philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer in a tweet.
“Talent reaches a goal that no one else can reach. Genius reaches a goal that no one can see (because it’s in your c…)”wrote the tycoon.
Now, in light of previous scandals in the world of chess, it is beginning to be analyzed in detail how the alleged cheat would work.
The operation of the supposed Chinese balls
Chinese balls are a device that works to increase the muscle tone of the pelvic floor. It can also be used as a sex toy.
In chess, according to the striking theory, it would be used to transmit the moves that a player should make from device vibrations.
“The mechanics of the cheat would be simple: an accomplice who was watching the game live (as it was actually being broadcast), could simulate the real game on a computer and see its movements. Later, through vibrations, he could “tell” the would-be cheater what the suggested moves would be. Anal beads would easily pass any security check.”explains the Spanish portal ‘La Razón’.

The history of cheating in chess
Accusations of cheating have historically tainted chess.
In the legendary game between the American Bobby Fischer and the Soviet Boris Spassky in 1972, the two delegations accused each other of illegal behavior, examining the chairs, the lighting and even the air in the room.
In front of the chessboard, the main means to cheat has been to have help from the public and establish a strategy to communicate. But ever since the computing power of computers began to outpace players, the chances of cheating have multiplied, especially at the highest level.
A Georgian grandmaster, Gaioz Nigalidze, was hunted down in 2015 because your visits to the bathroom They were too frequent.
