"Funny" Chess Handshake Video - New Rule at Chess Tournaments?

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

Chess is so much fun - not just in the game itself, but in the  interactions, the friendships and the joy that surrounds a chess game as well. Here's a video of two kids in a chess tournament. Technically, a nice checkmate delivered with a Rook and Queen, but watch the handshake after 0.33 seconds. Should that be the new rule at Chess Olympiads?

Don't forget to send us your favourite chess videos!
