Feb-15-04  ughaibu: World class blunders? It's a world championship match and Steinitz blunders his queen.
Feb-15-04  Benjamin Lau: Ughaibu, thanks! In it goes...
Feb-15-04  Benjamin Lau: ughaibu, incidentally since you are so interesting in Geller, what do you think about the fact that all four of Geller's blunders in my collection involve his queen in one way or another? Do you think that he is more likely to be (unsoundly) aggressive with that piece, or do you think it's just an interesting coincidence?
Feb-15-04  ughaibu: I'll have a look later. At one time I was thinking of making a collection of Geller losing miniatures but they were mainly lost by blunders and not very interesting, I dont remember the queen featuring disproportionately often.
Feb-15-04  Benjamin Lau: Actually, I made an error, nevermind. I have five games of his in my collection, 4/5 have to do with the queen, the other he forgot about the time controls and lost a game he should have at least drawn, and maybe won.
Feb-15-04  ughaibu: I made an error too, I didn't just think about the collection, I went ahead and made it, completely forgot.
Feb-15-04  Benjamin Lau: Lol ughaibu. ;-)
Dec-05-06  Gouki: <It's a world championship match and Steinitz blunders his queen.>

you would have thought that it was only in the old days they made horrible blunders like this in a world championship match.

then, we move to modern day chess and see games like this, Topalov vs Kramnik, 2006. on move 31...Bxf8?? Kramnik blunders horribly, and Topalov misses a mate in 3! with 32.Qg6+?? :D
