Because cheating on a mobile phone in the toilet during the break of the game,
The 59-year-old former international grandmaster Rauss was born in the Soviet Union and represented the Czech Republic. He has risen from an ordinary registered player to an international grand master in just 6 years, ranking among the top 100 in the world. In July 2019, because he was using his mobile phone on the toilet during the French Chess League game, this scene happened to be filmed. According to the rules of chess competition, this behavior has been violated.
After investigation by the Ethics Committee and the police, Lauys was found to be cheating, was banned from participating in all FIDE (World Chess Federation) competitions for 6 years, and deprived of the title of World Grand Master. Afterwards, the outside world believed that Loyce's performance in recent years has been improving rapidly or that it is related to cheating.
Last week, Rauss, who was still in suspension, decided to use the alias Issa-Kasimi to participate in the Latvia due to a loophole in the rules of the game.
Neksans saw through the disguise of Lauyce and reported to the game that he thought Lauyce was trying to hide his identity. But Raus denies the accusation, claiming that he is a well-known figure in Latvia. "I am a celebrity in the Latvian chess world. Everyone may recognize me in the first round. In addition, I have participated in two games under a new name, one Fischer arbitrary chess game and one dice game system. Chess."
The organizer of the event pointed to Latvian officials, and the other party stated that it was legal for Latvia to participate in the event. Neksans’ complaint was not supported because the competition was not a FIDE competition. However, in view of Nexans' constant protests, Lauyce had no choice but to retire.
After the incident, Neksans explained the incident on social media, saying that he had discovered the incognito Lauis in the third round. "He was wearing a mask at the time and I hadn't noticed him before. I confronted him and asked him why he was here and why he violated the ban. I didn't expect him to give me a new name and new credentials. His behavior angered me. Several contestants were present, and his opponents in the third round also refused to compete."
