Two super tournaments are taking place in Europe these days: the 3rd stage of FIDE Grand Prix in Zug and Alekhine Memorial in Paris. None of them introduced any special measures for preventing cheating. Ilya Smirin who is commentating Alekhine Memorial has in particular stressed the absence of any kind of control over the participants of the Memorial.

“It’s funny that before the games each player of the London Candidates was checked through the metal detector for five minutes. Personally I went out for smoking during the games without the arbiter, without anyone. Once I went out and my second has passed by me. I mean if wanting he could even prompt me something. All those anti-cheating measures seem to be just for show,” Smirin’s guest GM Alexander Grischuk said.

At the same time Grischuk noted that having the real anti-cheating measures in classical chess is very difficult, “if the chess player will not be allowed to smoke – won’t that contradict his constitutional rights?"
