Cheating and temper tantrums get a lot of attention at chess tournaments, but two players at the World Cup
are making news for all the right reasons.
During a match a week ago between the two players, target="_blank">David Navara
of the Czech Republic and Alexander Moiseenko
of Ukraine, Navara seemed to bump his king while reaching for his bishop on the 35th move. Under the rules, a player must move the first piece he touches, in this case the king. But after consulting a referee, the players agreed that Navara would be allowed to move his bishop instead.
