Touch-Move Rule: J’adouboKerry
In serious play, if a player having the move touches one of their pieces as if having the intention of moving it, then the player must move it if it can be legally moved…If a player wishes to touch a piece with the intention of adjusting its position on a square, the player must first alert their opponent of their intention by saying J’adoube or “I adjust”.
There have been occasions in chess history when a player has uttered j’adoube after making a losing move in order to retract it, thus attempting to avoid the touch-move rule.
Such behaviour is regarded as cheating. The Yugoslav Grandmaster Milan Matulovi? was nicknamed “J’adoubovic” after such an incident.

He’s feeling a great deal of stress
He came with his pecker
To play the game checkers
But Putin is now playing chess
