|Jan-28-04|| ||Resignation Trap: This is a famous game, not for the quality of the moves, but for an incident.|
At move 38, Matulovic played 38. Bf3??, quickly said "j'adoube", then placed his King on g1.
He got away with this infraction, but earned for himself the nickname of "Jadoubovic".
|Jan-28-04|| ||fatbaldguy: If I'm not mistaken, Matulovic is also the guy who lost an Interzonal game to Taimanov that enabled the latter to qualify to play Fischer (and get clobbered 6-0...). It was widely rumoured at the time that Matulovic took a bribe to lose the Taimanov game - apparently he played the entire game using only a few minutes on his clock. Interesting character, Matulovic... |
|Jan-28-04|| ||TrueFiendish: I read Mr Matulovic was incarcerated for running over a woman and lamented the court's decision with the comment, "She was only a Bosnian." My source, however, is not the most reliable. |

|Sep-07-04|| ||offramp: What does Evans mean by this:
<A few months later, as fate would have it, Matulovic got away with the same stunt against the same opponent! Thenceforth his colleagues dubbed him J'adoubovic.>
|Aug-11-10|| ||culei: What is jadoube I'm panamanian so for me
It seems like jaque doble meaning double check but
Does it make sense?

"J' adoube" is, as far as I understand, a French word which a player utters when he makes a "hand error", that is, when he accidentally touches a piece he hasn't meant to move at all. For its implication on the "touch-move" rule, I think it will be best to refer to the FIDE Handbook, or ask someone who is knowledgeable on the matter.
|Jun-03-12|| ||mithrandi: "J'adoube" is French meaning "I adjust"; in the context of Chess, it is meant to be uttered beforehand to indicate that you are touching a piece for the purpose of adjusting it (centering it on its square), rather than for the purpose of making a move.|
In this case, it was uttered *after* making a move, as an obvious ruse to take back the bad move, and should not have been allowed.
|Oct-09-12|| ||wordfunph: from R.G. Wade's book Sousse 1967..
<In this incident even Matulovic's Yugoslav colleagues did not side with him.>
|Oct-09-12|| ||erimiro1: But he wasn't alone and the story is not complete! How did Bilek respond?|
|Oct-29-12|| ||DrGridlock: At move 44, black goes for repeated checks with the rook on f6 and a draw by repetition. Is there anything better for black? Komodo finds:|

1. ³ (-0.45): 44...R3e4 45.Kf1 Rxb4 46.Ra1 Re8 47.Rd5 f6 48.Rxa6 Rb1+ 49.Rd1 Rxd1+ 50.Bxd1 Kf8 51.Bf3 b4 52.Bd5 Rd8 53.Kf2 b3 54.Bxb3 Nc5 55.Rb6 Nxb3 56.Rxb3 Kf7 57.Rb6 Ke6 58.d7+ Ke7 59.Kf3 Rxd7 60.g4
Black maintains an edge by going after white's b-pawn, and tieing down white's pieces to defending black's passed pawns.
