matches skipping generation

My brother just picked up a new match. This new match was at one time one of my mother's Affy matches however he is not a match with her Illumina results....so what do you think happened? He does not match me.

From what I've read, that could be the result of recombination if he's related to both your mother and father. I've got one suggested 3rd to 5th cousin which is suggested as 4th to distant with my father. That person has one branch of his tree close to where my father is from and one branch from where my mother is from.
