Chinese Chess Champion Yan Chenglong Loses ‘Xiangqi King’ Title Amid Cheating and Misconduct Allegations

Published on

In a shocking turn of events, the recently crowned “Xiangqi King,” Yan Chenglong, has been stripped of his national Chinese chess champion title following allegations of cheating and inappropriate behavior. The incident, which unfolded at a tournament hosted by the Chinese Xiangqi Association (CXA), has sent shockwaves through the Xiangqi community.

Yan Chenglong, a 48-year-old chess prodigy, had emerged victorious in a heated competition, defeating numerous contenders to claim the prestigious title. However, his celebration took a bizarre turn, leading to the revocation of his title and the forfeiture of his prize money.

Reports surfaced claiming that Yan Chenglong resorted to cheating during the competition by using unconventional methods. It is alleged that he employed anal beads equipped with wireless transmitters to clandestinely communicate moves with a computer. Through clenching and unclenching, Yan supposedly transmitted coded information about the chessboard, receiving instructions via vibrations.

The Chinese Xiangqi Association responded to these allegations by stating that, based on their current understanding, it is challenging to substantiate claims of cheating via “anal beads” circulating on social media. However, they acknowledged a separate incident of misconduct that led to Yan’s title being revoked.

The association revealed that Yan Chenglong engaged in disruptive behavior, disrupting public order and displaying extremely bad character. The incident occurred after consuming alcohol with others in his hotel room. On the following day, he defecated in the bathtub, causing damage to hotel property and violating public order and moral standards.

The CXA expressed disappointment in Yan’s actions, emphasizing the negative impact on the competition, the Xiangqi community, and the event itself. This unexpected twist has overshadowed the initial congratulatory tone from the association, which had previously praised the players, including Yan, for their “spectacularly heated high-level gameplay.”
