May-14-09  WhiteRook48: <itz2000> that is illegal, the rook is on d3
Dec-23-12  Tigranny: What?! Judit gets mated?!
Aug-01-14  Ke2: Nothing wrong with getting checkmated...
Oct-01-14  SpiritedReposte: Someone playing chess was checkmated!!???

But...what...how??

Oct-18-15  PJs Studio: The surprise is due to her not resigning before being checkmated (as she is such an amazing player). However, I'm sure her opponent was very low on time! Look at the complications she caused him after he had such a handsome advantage around moves 15-27.
