I'm extremely familiar with chess, so I have a feeling it's about openings or something. (Update: As it turns out, I'm extremely familiar with 9LX but not really familiar with chess. The answer is well yeah an answer to do with openings. And since 9LX is pretty much chess without openings, I think this is why I was unable to get it.)
In particular, this drama involves the possibility that Hans somehow knew Magnus preparation i.e. what opening move Magnus was going to play (e.g. someone on Magnus' team sold him out to Hans... or, for instance, Hans hacked into Magnus' laptop or whatever), but I'd like to know what exactly Nepo means by this phrase, please.
Here's where Nepo uses the phrase 'первой линии', which google translate translates as '1st line':
- Ты выиграл партию, играя строго по первой линии!
- Предположим, что и такое бывает, но гораздо, гораздо реже, чем в случае с отдельной партией по первой линии. Тут может помочь только статистика.
- Ты выиграл онлайн-турнир, играя по первой линии!
