Young billionaire beats Viswanathan at chess game but is caught cheating
Chess is considered to be a game of skill and intelligence, and in an offline setup it is almost impossible for someone to cheat. But on the other hand, when the world faces the wrath of the Covid 19 pandemic, chess as a sport has had to evolve online, where the possibility of cheating and using unfair means is increased. In recent days, Viswanathan Anand has organized a series of matches against people from different fields. He had scheduled matches with Indian chess champion and cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal, famous Bollywood actor Aamir Khan and finally, against the youngest Indian billionaire, Nikhil Kamath. But in the end, not all games ended well.

These matches were supposed to raise funds for India against the ongoing fight against the Covid 19 pandemic. On the one hand, where India suffers from this deadly disease, these matches have offered a little respite to the population. Nikhil Kamath, the co-founder of Zerodha and Team Beacon, created quite the float recently after defeating Viswanathan Anand in chess. The result shocked everyone, as Anand is a grandmaster at chess and Kamath is not very proficient at chess. After the shocking victory, Twitter was inundated with tweets and social media explained how the world champion lost to someone who wasn’t even good at chess. It was a huge question on everyone’s mind. Later that night, news broke that Kamath’s account was disabled for cheating. The platform used for these matches is Chess.com, which is considered to be one of the best online chess sites. They realized after the match that Kamath used a cheat engine and won by unfair means against the world champion. After that, social media did not hold back and blasted the young billionaire. Since then, he has admitted that he has people helping him analyze the game and that he uses outside help. Fans were happy that the site detected this act of cheating and that his account was deactivated.
Chess is a game of cleverness and cunning and should be played the same and fairly. We’re sure people like Kamath could have learned a lesson from this.
