Arbiter Caught on Tape

Over on Chess Chat, they are talking about a very strange arbiter's decision that was caught on tape. Instead of resulting in, what seems to me, a likely win for black - the game ended peacefully. Take a look!

Pay close attention to the positions at 0.51 and 2.33.



Australian chess mandarin and deputy boss of the Australian Chess Federation, Bill Gletsos, summarises it neatly in his usual brutal style: "Total screw up by the arbiter".

In case it's skipped your attention, a lot of Aussies are Asian and have been for a very long time...

It is only natural and correct that 99% of those kids are Asians. We're taking over this country.

Thanks to us Asians this country has a much better diet!
