    12:20 Did anyone else spot Ra7 instead? I thought that was the move. If white deflects black rook from the defence of f6 (or pins it), black will have to give his queen for the knight to avoid checkmate.

    TO anyone asking about the wrist watch thing To prevent cheating through any Electronic Interface ,It is now within the Fide rule . It is quite impossible to go to every player and check whether the watch has any kind of outgoing interface. So they have decided directly that any Watch will lead to forfeiture of the Game
