Heartbreaking for USA! Sam Shankland makes an illegal move | Chess Olympiad 2022 #shorts

Here’s an amazing chess game played between Sam Shankland (Team USA) & Robert Hovhannisyan (Team Armenia) at the 44th FIDE Chess Olympiad 2022 held at Chennai, India. This is a Round 7 game which was looking completely drawish, but towards the end, Sam made an illegal move & because of the touch move rule, Armenia won the game. As a result of this, the round was drawn & Armenia took the lead on the points table. #Shorts #ChessTalk #Chess #chessolympiad #chessolympiad2022
