Call it a rook-y error.
Woody Harrelson caused a king-size mess on Friday when he performed the duties of the ceremonial starter at the first match of the World Chess Championship in London.
Reuters reports that the “True Detective” star caused a royal mishap when challenger Fabiano Caruana asked Harrelson to move his opening pawn, but Harrelson moved the wrong piece — and accidentally knocked over the king, a move that usually signals forfeiture of the match.
Apparently Caruana “initially appeared to accept the mistake before officials allowed the pawn to be replaced.”
What a knight-mare.
