Ladies and gentlemen, we are now in the third hour of this very tense match. It’s Maru’s move, and both contestants are studying the board. And now Maru appears to be reaching for his rook, and… no, just grooming himself, which he often does in moments of intense concentration. And now Maru is… leaving the game! I have never seen anything like this in my years of covering cat chess!
We take you now to our post-match analysis, with sender-inners Andrew Y. and Lois.
