    This is against the rules, so therefore this is not the actual record

    You moved the pieces with both hands, so I really don't think this counts. FIDE Laws Of Chess state that the pieces may be moved with one hand only, alternating between White and Black, not "with both hands, all at the same time".

      um... no... pawns move diagonally forward one space to capture a piece... this is checkmate

      Tai is right. Pawns move one/two spaces due forward just to advance on the board but to take a piece it must be diagonal to the pawn.

      Upon second look are correct Tai... My apologies
