A chess genius has been accused of using a sex toy to better his chances in a tournament final, where the prize pot was an eye-watering £300,000.
Accusations of cheating stormed the usually quiet tournament proceedings, with even Elon Musk weighing in on the anal beads controversy.
But the long running Sinquefield Cup has been levelled with notes of controversy after its lowest-rated player, Hans Niemann, 19, managed to beat five-time grand champion Magnus Carlsen, 31.

Foul play allegations were levelled at Niemann, who said that "the chess speaks for itself" in a match that was called an "upset for the ages" by Vice.
It was there that allegations of anal beads vibrating the correct moves were aired, with a theory that wireless sex toy vibrations would vibrate to tell Niemann the correct moves.
Hidden in the soles of his shoes, Niemann had allegedly devised a contraption that would make his shoes communicate with him via a "prostate massager".
Hypothetically speaking of how Niemann could have used this plan, allegations of a hidden player controlling the vibrations were aired.
A now-deleted tweet from Elon Musk seemed to praise the outsider influence on Niemann's game, with the SpaceX CEO writing: "Talent hits a target no one else can hit, genius hits a target no one can see (cause it’s in ur butt)."

Fallout from the consequences of the alleged cheating has seen the Sinquefield Cup organisers broadcast future matches on a 15-minute delay as well as taking additional security measures.
Despite the accusations never being confirmed, Niemann has been banned from the largest chess site in the world as well as uninvited from the Chess.com Global Championship.
The £864,000 ($1million) event has rescinded their invite for Niemann, River Front Times reported.
Carlsen has since withdrawn from the competition but hopes to "be back in the future", leaving a video clip of Jose Mourinho's infamous "If I speak, I am in big trouble" clip.
