In the second round of the Vergani Open 2022 something unusual happened. First Nigel Short, rated 2633, was almost losing his game against Lorenzo Candian, rated 1966. While the engines showed an advantage of +4 for the 13-year-old Italian youngster, his mobile rang! It was not that Lorenzo had kept his phone on. It was switched off and placed inside his bag, but his alarm rang. The boy was immediately given a loss and Nigel won.
How did Lorenzo carry his phone to the tournament venue? Did the regulations of the tournament allow that? Was it some kind of cheating, or was it a genuine mistake? All of these questions are answered in this video as Rupali Mullick, our on ground correspondent, speaks with four important personalities related to the episode – GM Nigel Short, father of Lorenzo Candian, chief arbiter Nuno Andrade and tournament director Pier Luigi Basso.
