Apr-28-04  Drstrangelove: Ouch! I hear that Kasparov giggles when a player makes a bad move, he must have been on the floor laughing in this game.

  patzer2: After 15. Qxf5??, Gary springs a winning discovered attack on his unsuspecting opponent.
Feb-25-05  Zaius: I must admit I didn't see the discovered attack either. Ouch!
Feb-28-06  waddayaplay: When you play and your opponent blunders like this what do you do? Do you sit still with a poker face, do you grin at him, or do you just make your move and get up from the board to laugh behind his back?

  WannaBe: Having been at the both end of such situations, I just accept/offer the resignation, and go curse/smile on the way out.

  thegoodanarchist: So it seems that Bd3 was the losing move. Maybe Qc2 instead? Any thoughts?
Nov-21-06  RookFile: 14. Bd3 was a bad move, but after 14....f5, maybe Huebner can weasel his way out to an inferior position with something like 15. Qh4 e4 16. c5 Bxc5 17. dxc5 exf3 18. Bc4+ Kh8 19. Bf4.

I've read it's more like a malicious grin.

Oct-25-07  PAWNTOEFOUR: <Zaius> i didn't either.........then i looked over and saw that bishop.....not one of GM Huebner's finer efforts
Apr-04-08  Whitehat1963: Oops! Nowhere to go.

  FSR: Ouch! Hard to believe that Huebner, one of the deepest analysts, could fall for such a one-mover. Vigorito in his book on the Semi-Slav says that 15.Qh4 e4 16.c5 Bc7 (16...Bxc5 is also playable) 17.Bc4+ Kh8 18.Nd2 Nf6 was unclear in Kempinski-S. Ivanov, Poland 2001.
