Chess player banned. No, not for steroids.

The number one rule in life is, "Don't get caught." And yes, the rule applies to chess players too.

Though Umakant Sharma wasn't listening.

The Indian chess player has been banned for 10 years for cheating after he was caught using his mobile phone's wireless device to win games, chess officials said on Wednesday.

Mr. Sharma was caught at a recent tournament when officials discovered that he had stitched a Bluetooth device in a cloth cap which he always pulled over his ears.

He communicated to his accomplices outside the hall, who then used a computer to relay moves to him, Indian chess federation secretary D.V. Sundar said on Wednesday.

Man, 10 years?! Eeesh. Makes you think that he'll never get his crack at Bobby Fischer. (That was a chess joke. A bad one at that. Our apologies.) Sure it may be a generalization that all chess players are smart, but Sharma broke the number one rule. He got caught. And he's going to pay. With blood. Ok, not blood. But he's gonna pay.
