Hi Joost,

I can confirm that. Last week, in a real game at the club, I was about to
be mated. I grabbed my king though, moved it left and right over the board
until all other units had taken refuge in the chess box. Then I put it in
my pocket. Nobody objected and my opponent signed off the score sheet in my
favor. Finally, I picked up my gun and left for home. What have FIDE rules
got to do with actual chess games? Strange enough, the computer did object
when I tried to register the Kings end game. Never got the hang of computer
