You know, I'm not a fan of chess.com overall (sorry weewoo), from putting everything behind a paywall to fugly interface, but it's undeniable their cheat detection procedures are the state of the art. And Carlsen's gut-feeling it out can just be bias, but equal opponent not looking pensive enough tipped folks even in my small-potatoes club, and it was rarely unsubstantiated later. It may read like a gossip, but barring some solid evidence to the contrary, it looks pretty clear.

Do I infer that you're particularly keen on playing chess?

When time allows. Quite a few remaining folks play.
