Chess is a game of strategy and thought, and calmness, as well as intellect, are necessary to play the game. If you play by emotion, you'll fall quickly. Violence is not an option, unless you're apparently a robot.

Last week, a Russian child that's only seven years old, was facing off against a robot to see if he could outsmart it.

Well, the kid was apparently moving too fast for the robot or went out of turn, because it looks as though it got pissed off, and pinched the kid's finger so badly that it broke his finger.

“There are certain safety rules and the child, apparently, violated them. When he made his move, he did not realise he first had to wait,” Russian Chess Federation Vice President Sergey Smagin said. “This is an extremely rare case, the first I can recall."

It took a woman and three men to free the kid from the robot's grip and pull him away.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
