Grandmaster Alexey Dreev has shared with our site his opinion on the so-called "Sandu affair" at the Women's European Championship.

"Before making pronouncements about points, probabilities, 'tournament of life', reputations and outward signs of cheating, it is not a bad idea first to look at her games with the computer. This is what I have done. I have examined those games of hers that were broadcast live without delay, and I have not found one single sign of this so-called 'intelligent cheating'. From a professional point of view, I can confidently say that Sandu has not employed computer help. This is more than obvious, and I can prove it. But this would take time, and anyway, the burden of proof should lie with the accusers, not the other way round.  

As for the 'letter of the 15', well, alas, I think in this case, it is better to take back the move. This would be the only correct decision, and I cannot give the signatories any other advice. Better late than never. 

I would be more inclined to accuse Sandu of employing the help of a para-psychologist, since that is the only way to explain the terrible mistakes committed by so many of her opponents at the board."
