Chess Grandmaster a Cheat

His opponent reportedly became suspicious when Nigalidze made frequent trips to the toilet. Officials investigated and found that he always used the same cubicle in the bathroom, and a search found the iPhone hidden behind the toilet.

Nigalidze denied that the iPhone was his, but it was found to be logged into one of his social media accounts. It has not yet been revealed which chess app was used.
