    I've often said it's best to play a human than a box.

    However a box will never do this to you.

    Sarah Anton (1718) – Paul Broekhuyse (2118), Sydney International Open 2009

    White to play.



    White played 54.Nd7+ and Black resigned. The result stood.

    A finger slip or a 'try' I've no idea idea.
    I suspect a slip possibly deep in an allegro finish.

    I have heard about this ridiculous game (and a couple of absurd Knight moves in other games).

    These guys need to know the rules of the chess and also should try to understand the difference between a Knight and a Bishop 😛

    The truly sad thing is that 54...Qxd7 fails because of 55. Rxd7+ and 56. Rxb5 winning

    The aussies defended their slip ups (on chessvibes.com, where the article about these weird knight jumps is located) by stating that in Australia the knight is a kangeroo, which moves like a knight with one additional square diagonally.

    This reminds me of the time when I friend and I were playing in the pub one night rather late, and we went into the ending with him having the bishop pair.

    Sad part was, both of his bishops were on the same color squares, and we're not sure how long we played like that before we noticed.

    In our defense, we were also involved in a host of unbishop-like activities...

    That's a move I use often when I play my mom. She's thinks I've very good.

    Looks like a draw to me: 54 Nd7+ Qxd7 55 Rxd7 Kxd7 56 Kxb5 Kxc3

    Oh never mind, 55... Kxd7 loses to 56 c8=Q!

    I've heard that National Lampoons Chess Maniac Five Billion and One couldn't be trusted to play fair. 🙁

    There must be a lot of this in blitz and bullet. If a player makes an illegal move in the midst of rapid play, what can be done?

    Other player stops clock and challenges the move no?

    Or maybe it's considered a win for the other player.

    Australians could also defend the move by stating that, as a country of alcoholics, they're less apt at the sober game

    Less adept would be more apt

    Challenge me when BlackDog1967 finally resigns

    I expect this game may be a case of Woolly Jumpers
