This is the moment when the chess player realized that he had made a move that cost him a match and became very angry and fell out of his chair.

With less than ten seconds left on his game, Paul Tiklav, 18 of Poland, lost to Tigran Petrosyan, 37, of Armenia in a world championship blitzkrieg match at the PGE National Stadium in Warsaw, Poland.

A funny clip shows Mr. Tiklav playing white and making his last step in the game and as soon as his opponent responds, he leans heavily in his chair and retreats as he swears in Polish.

Mr. Petrosyan reached out to him, but Mr. Tiklav fell to the ground.

He quickly stood up, then proceeded to shake hands with his opponent.

Mr Teclaf, the international teacher, confirmed in a later interview that he was fine after the fall, and had simply “lost balance”.

`I usually swing in the chair because I absolutely love it,’ he said, `but this is the first time I’ve just fallen.

I just lost my balance and fell, (Mr. Petrosyan) tried to help me.

I stood up quickly. Yesterday I was so angry but I looked at the video and it’s so funny.

I was totally winning but we had ten seconds max on the clock. I managed to spoil it.

I just wanted to finish the day.

The clip, which went viral, was shared on YouTube channel SpeedChess and has now racked up more than 30,000 views.

It also has 702 comments, some pointing to the fact that Mr. Ticlaf was likely injured in a sport not known for her physicality.

“This is the first official chess victory by knockout,” Om Kali said.

John Kervin added: ‘Anyone who thinks chess players are not athletes, refer them to this clip. World-class endgame technology is here by Petrosyan.

Amazing sense of balance and timing to stay in his chair while finding top mover movement.

“Teclaf got some extra points from the judges for his clean break up.”

Anton Kocherenko also commented: “And after this person says that chess is not a dangerous sport, a man can break his bone.”
