    Cool Touch Move Rule

    While researching an article for the touch move rule I began searching for the supposed video footage of Garry Kasparov touching the piece when he played against Judit Polgar. I had hear such footage existed and found every website claiming to have it had been removed. Curious.

    Default Garry has retired

    The footage I was looking for was from his famous game against Polgar, obviously from before he retired.

    Incorrect.

    He retired because he wanted to pursue a career in politics.

    Default Touch move by GMs

    GM Milan Matulovic
    also known as GM Jadoubovic


    Milan Matulovic was among a leading Yugoslav Grandmasters during the late 60's and early 70's. He was Yugoslav champion in 1965 and 1967 and the winner of many international tournaments. Milan Matulovic has represented Yugoslavia at five consecutive Olympiads in period 1964-1972, scoring 4 team medals (2 silver, 2 bronze) and even 3(!) medals for individual results (1 gold, 2 silver). He also played at four European Chess Team Championships (1961-1973), winning 3 team silver medals. His chess career culminated when he was taken to play 8th board in "USSR versus Rest of the World" played on 1970. He was parried to play against former world champion Mikhail Botvinnik. Matulovic lost one game and drew the other three.

    Milan Matulovic was a good chess player. He even played a friendly match with 15-years old Bobby Fischer when he was visiting Belgrade in 1958. Fischer won two, Matulovic one and one game ended draw. However the story of Milan deserves to be in the anecdotes section becase of his scandalous behavior on and outside the board.

    Matulovic was known for playing lost positions for a long time hoping to reach adjourment after the 40th move. He also has a long history of clashing with his teammates in Chess Club "Partizan", Belgrade. Sometimes things heated up so much, that on several occasions he threw out his roommates during competitions.

    The most emblematic event for Matulovic happened at the Sousse Interzonal in 1967. He took a move back in game against Istvan Bilek after saying ""j'adoube". Bilek was shocked with the courage of Milan Matulovic, and even though many observers witnessed the incident, the arbiter didn't see the takeback and allowed Matulovic to proceed the game. This earned him the nickname "J'adoubovic". And who said that chess could be as boring as bingo.
