Indian Chess Player Caught Cheating With Cell Phone in His Hat

Sharma was finally caught at a recent tournament when officials discovered that he had stitched a Bluetooth device in a cloth cap which he always pulled over his ears.

He communicated to his accomplices outside the hall, who then used a computer to relay moves to him, Indian chess federation secretary D.V. Sundar said on Wednesday.

I’m astounded that some guy who wore a hat pulled over his ears got away with this for so long. I dare you to try a stunt like this in a casino.
