An 'android's gambit' by a chess-playing robot in Russia broke the finger of a seven-year-old player. The incident took place at the Moscow Chess Open Tournament on July 19th when a seven-year-old boy was competing with a specialized chess-playing machine. The organizing committee clarified that the robot broke the boy's finger after he played a quick move without waiting his turn.
