HELP !....Arbiter Decision in Blitz Game


Black wins.

Fide rules:


The game is won by the player who has checkmated his opponent’s king. This immediately ends the game, provided that the move producing the checkmate position was in accordance with Article 3 and Articles 4.2 – 4.7.


During the game each player, having made his move on the chessboard, shall stop his own clock and start his opponent’s clock (that is to say, he shall press his clock). This “completes” the move. A move is also completed if:

the move ends the game (see Articles 5.1.1, 5.2.1, 5.2.2, 9.6.1 and 9.6.2), or ...


FYI Article 3 refers to how the pieces move (Bishops move diagonally, etc) and Article 4.2 - 4.7 refers to touching and releasing pieces.
