Cheating : Future is now

An indian player (rated 1900, suddenly 2484) gets ten year ban from FIDE for cheating... Using a bluetooth device stitched into his cap to receive external computer assistance.

A new danger for OTB chess... Could suspicion (like Topalov-Kramnik match) kill the game ?

There'll obviously be sound detectors, metal detectors etc. in major chess tournaments in the near future to catch cheaters. So, I think that though the bluetooth case is a setback to the integrity of the sport right now, such cases can be detected successfully most of the time.

I agree... But suspicion will increase anyway :/

I hope new technologies couldn't create undetectable tools in a near future.

Chess tournament organizers need only to contact casino owners who have been dealing with these problems for a long time and likely are experts at detecting all forms of cheating.
