格鲁吉亚全国冠军在杜拜公开赛上作弊 (2015-04-14 23:01:57)转载▼ 标签： 国际象棋 杂谈 分类： 国际象棋作弊 按：译自chessbase
2015年4月12日，杜拜国际象棋公开赛第六轮，格鲁吉亚特级大师加约拉（Gaioz Nigalidze）持黑对阵亚美尼亚特级大师蒂格兰（Tigran Petrosian）。 On 12th of April, in the sixth round at the Dubai Open 2015, Georgian GM Gaioz Nigalidze was paired with the black pieces against Armenian GM Tigran Petrosian.
在比赛过程中，蒂格兰对对手的行为高度警惕。下面就是他对俄罗斯国际象棋新闻网的描述：“去年12月我们俩都参加了艾因公开赛，比赛结束后我就怀疑他了。加约拉在那个公开赛上得了冠军。在那次比赛上，他就象这次一样经常地上厕所。但是，那时我没有证据，只是猜测。今天，我的疑问得到了确认。加约拉回应了我的招法之后，就会马上去上厕所。有两次，我故意在他回应之后，立刻走子。让他没办法离开。而这两次他都犯了错。我决定多注意他的行为。我发现他总是进同一个厕位。让我感到奇怪的是，另外两个厕位是空的，他也不用。” During the game Petrosian became wary about his opponent's play. This is how he described it to the Russian chess portal Chess-News: "I was suspicious about my opponent already after the tournament in Al Ain in December, where we both had taken part. Nigalidze won that tournament. During our game he would go to the toilet very often, just like this time. However, in Al Ain I had no evidence, I could only make guesses. Today, my suspicions have been confirmed. In today's game, Nigalidze would promptly reply to my moves and then literally run to the toilet. Twice, I made my moves quickly as well, so that he couldn't leave, and he made mistakes on those occasions. I decided to keep an eye on him. I noticed that he would always visit the same toilet partition, which was strange, since two other partitions weren't occupied."
第六轮接到蒂格兰的投诉之后，主裁判麦蒂跟着加约拉进入厕所，在厕位门外等了6分钟。主裁判说当时没有声响，加约拉走出厕位，还把厕位的门关好。主裁判趋前检查了这位格鲁吉亚棋手是否随身携带电子设备。这让加约拉非常紧张。但是，他还是让主裁判检查了他的口袋，口袋里什么也没发现。加约拉回到自己的位子，马上走了一步，然后起身又去了厕所。这次，他可能是想确认他放在厕所的设备没被发现。主裁判说，这次他还是像上次一样，进的是同一个厕位。 After Petrosian’s complaint in round six in Dubai, chief arbiter IA Mahdi Abdul Rahim followed Nigalidze and waited for almost six minutes outside the toilet. According to the arbiter there was no sound, and when Nigalidze came out of the toilet he made sure to close the door. The arbiter confronted the Georgian player to check whether he had any electronic device on him. This made Nigalidze extremely nervous. Nevertheless, he allowed the arbiter to carry out the checking of his pockets, but nothing was found. Nigalidze returned to the board and immediately after making his move once again went to the toilet. This time he wanted to make sure that the device which he had kept in the toilet would not be found. According to the arbiter, Nigalidze went to the same toilet cubicle which he had used on the previous occasions.
厕所里有四个厕位，加约拉每次都用左边第二个。这次还像上次一样，他出来之后，把厕位的门关好。主裁判进入厕位，检查了垃圾桶。在厕纸的下面发现了连着耳麦的智能手机，很明显是这位格鲁吉亚棋手正在使用。 There are four toilets in the venue but Nigalidze, always chose the one which is second from the left Once again Nigalidze made sure that the toilet door was firmly closed after he came out of the toilet. The arbiter went inside the toilet and checked the waste bin. Hidden under toilet paper was the smart phone with ear buds that was clearly being used by the Georgian player.
主裁判拿起手机，走到加约拉的面前，问他这是不是他的。格鲁吉亚棋手哑口无言，拒绝承认那是他的手机。但是，裁判们检查了手机，发现一个正在使用的社交账户的户主就是加约拉。同时，他们也发现加约拉正在下的棋也在一个国际象棋软件上分析。 The arbiter took the device, went to Nigalidze’s board and asked him if it was his. The Georgian couldn’t say much and denied that he owned the device. But officials checked the smart phone and found it was logged into a social networking site under Nigalidze’s account. They also found his game being analyzed in one of the chess applications.
一切都清楚了：加约拉的比赛被判负，蒂格兰得到一分。 上面的信息是通过采访主裁判得到的。事件的报告已经呈送国际棋联反作弊委员会。主裁判说，如果一个棋手被证明犯了这样的错误，将被禁止参加所有的比赛3年；如果是累犯，就是15年的禁赛。 Absolutely clear: the game was forfeited and the point awarded to Petrosian The above information is based on the interview taken by author of these lines of the chief arbiter Mahdi Abdul Rahman. The report of this incident has been sent to the anti-cheating commission of FIDE. According to the chief arbiter players proven to have committed such an offence will be suspended for three years from all sanctioned tournaments, and up to 15 years in case of a repeat offence.
加约拉在成为特级大师之前就受到关注。他在2013和2014出人意料地连续两次获得格鲁吉亚全国冠军，而这两次按等级分排位他都是第九。他的等级分持续上涨，但是他的上次比赛的冠军受到质疑。那是在2014年12月举行的艾因公开赛上，他战胜众多强手，像Kryvoruchko, Areschenko, Petrosian, Zhigalko, Shankland等，赢得冠军，同时获得11000美元的奖金。 Gaioz Nigalidze (middle) attracted attention even before he became a grandmaster. He sensationally won the Georgian Championship twice in a row, in 2013 and 2014, while both the times he was only #9 in the starting rank list. He has been constantly moving up the rating charts. His back to back title wins are sure to raise some suspicion. He won the super strong Al-Ain Open in December 2014 ahead of strong players like Kryvoruchko, Areschenko, Petrosian, Zhigalko, Shankland etc. He earned US $11,000 in that event.
