Chess player uses Bluetooth to cheat. Gets Banned.

Umakant Sharma, an Indian chess player was slapped with a 10 year ban by the All India Chess Federation (AICF) after he was caught using a cap with a bluetooth headset stitched in it.

The modus operandi was to simulate the moves of the game in a computer program.

The AICF unearthed this while doing a random check during a chess tournament where Sharma was seeded second.

Pretty lame for a second seeded player to resort to cheap tricks like this!
