After Magnus Carlsen, the World Champion lost the following game he withdrew from The Sinquefield Cup; possibly the most prestigious invitation event in chess. He then issued a strange tweet which contained  vague insinuations.

Will we ever know whether

Magnus threw his toys out of the pram after losing to the lowest rated competitor?

Suspects Hans Niemann of cheating during the game?

Thinks that a member of his team passed Niemann his opening preparation?

Without any evidence it does smack of a bad loser, anyway here is the game

 White:  Carlsen, M.     Black:  Niemann, Hans Moke

9th Sinquefield Cup 4th September 2022
