One of the EICC participants David Shengelia, who represents Austria, joined us live on Chess-News radio today. It turned out something else than a lost game against Moiseenko on the first board made him upset, “This is a very important thing to mention. Today’s lost game didn’t upset me as much as my opponent’s – I don’t even know how to call it – silly, stupid commentary after the game. My rival said that he suspected me of using the computer during the game. That’s just beyond all limits. […] I beat Areschenko yesterday, so my today’s rival suspected that I could be cheating. So, you can’t defeat a 2700+ player without being accused of cheating. That’s just not nice. Especially after winning a game – telling that your opponent could be cheating in the previous game… It’s really upsetting that such kind of, perhaps, narrow-minded people are in chess world…”   

This is how Shengelia found out he has been suspected of cheating, “I got to know that in the lobby after the game. He [Moiseenko] was talking to Areschenko as I remember. I approached them and asked something about the position. Well, just usual conversation between the players after the game. What I got in response was that another Austrian player Robert Kreisl (who beat Cheparinov) and I were suspected of cheating by Moiseenko. Well, that happens when a person plays well – he wins...”
