Looks like everyone is putting technology to use, even the grandmaster chess players. However using technology rather than your brain in chess is considered cheating! Three French players who were playing for global titles were caught cheating in the game of chess by using text messages.

The three players, Grandmaster Sébastien Feller, 19 years old, Cyril Marzolo, 32 years old, and Arnaud Hauchard, 39 years old, were charged with violating the sport ethics at the Chess Olympiad after its vice president of the French Chess Federation saw a text on Hauchard’s phone that read “Hurry up and send the moves”. He also found 180 messages sent to other two players. The phone belonged to the vice president herself and she lent Hauchard the phone since he couldn’t afford one.

Not really smart is he!?
