GM Farrukh Amonatov gave a commentary on Round 9 yesterday on Chess-News radio. Apart from the games we have discussed the chess betting shops. Farrukh himself supervises one of such platforms. The moderator of the discussion Evgeny Surov asked Amonatov about the possibility of cheating as the players may just agree on the result to make the profit of their stake.

“That happens, but not only in chess. The bookmakers understand that they may go bust, but as far as they’re ready to take on chances, it means the advantages overlap disadvantages. They fight against the dishonest players. Usually they take stakes on the tournaments where 2700+ play, for the chances of agreed games are less in them. Apart from that there are black lists with the names of the suspicious players who may be cheating. I even heard about the idea of publishing such a list. I don’t know how big that list is, but I should be fair – it is of a considerable size,” Amonatov said.
