  1. If a chess player after the match cannot fully explain his line of thinking in the game deciding position, than nobody can convince me he did not cheat.Even if you don't remember you should be able to quickly recalculate, Hans could not explain his choices. Like a kid in math class that copied the final answer but cannot derive how he got the answer. You just know he cheated.

  2. "Chess speaks for itself" walks away had me laughing loudly.

  3. the lawsuit never really had any good chance to land something anyways. Defamation cases are notoriously hard to win. And the reason they tried in missouri is because of the lack of anti slapp laws.
