    Although Australia don't play for another ten days, some Australian members will probably know some of the NZ players who are in action this weekend in Pool A of Division 3. Also Raymond Song is top board for Chinese Taipei in Pool B after they qualified from last weekend's section.

    Looks like this hasn't affected qualification as Hong Kong and Nicaragua still qualify to stage 3 even with the adjusted results while the others were already eliminated.

    This is one of the core problems with online cheating. In some cases...it is some crazy ''ambitions'' that motivate the cheaters rather than any feasible benefits.

    We don't know that the allegation is computer cheating, though that's the explanation that first comes to mind, or how it was decided. Presumably the players have a right of appeal as it's a decision by FIDE, not the black box.

    A curious feature is that for three of the teams you can work out who was pinged as there is a player with a string of zeroes; a couple of others also score zero but from only one or two games. However in the case of Brunei there are two players with straight losses but in both cases the player was benched or unavailable after the first day. So it would seem that if whoever was booked was playing too well it was based on a sample of three games.

    This Shaun Press post might give some insight into the process.
