Oct-23-10  Tigranny: What was the real plan with Re6?
Oct-24-10  eightbyeight: Probably to weave a mating net with Re7+. It was just the perfect square for the rook, except that it wasn't.
Apr-11-11  Tigranny: Thanks eightbyeight.
Aug-02-11  Tigranny: I think 121.Re6?? should be the blunder of the century because it was a long, hard fought battle unlike the game with the real Blunder Of The Century - Deep Fritz vs Kramnik, 2006.

No, Short actually hung his rook.

  FSR: Another famous brain fart by Short: Short vs Beliavsky, 1992.
Dec-11-12  mjkE4: One of the worst blunders I have seen, made me think I was looking at one of my own games.

<The only thing that matters is the final result of the game, and so 25...Qxa3!! Brilliant! It traps a rook 100 moves later!>

LOL!

  Check It Out: It's a blunder like this, 121 moves in to the game, that highlights how taxing chess is on the mind-body.

  Paint My Dragon: Indeed. Nigel explained this one today on the live Candidates broadcast. He needed the bathroom urgently. The nearest inexplicably involved walking the length of a gigantic tournament hall and along numerous corridors of a large hotel. He was in some time trouble and every time he moved, Krasenkow seemed to sense his plight and responded immediately each time Nigel stood up. The blunder occurred when he could no longer concentrate.
Mar-28-13  paavoh: So it was Short's bladder, not blunder. Could he have used an empty bottle instead?
Mar-28-13  IndigoViolet: <Sorry to keep dwelling on this painful episode, but one last question: what was the reaction when it happened, yours and his? Did you look at him in dismay, did you notice first or did he see it?

I played the move, and he just whipped my rook off immediately. Actually I didn’t even see his move being played, because it happened so quickly. I think it was one of the very few times that I said “f***” out aloud. I was really, genuinely shocked. It was disbelief. You know, when I lose games I can get pretty angry with myself, but on this occasion I wasn’t angry, I was quite calm, because it was just too bizarre.>

  FSR: Short's 122nd move reminds me of Stein's 34th move in J Emma vs Stein, 1966 - except that in the latter game Stein's opponent didn't take the hanging queen!!

  MarkFinan: Yup.. That definitely belongs in a game collection someone created called "Lol games!". Gotta feel sorry for Short there because it was a long old game. Maybe what shams said to me about energy in chess is right, I remember playing a Correspondence type game with someone here and I must have been staring at a chess board for over an hour thinking, and I had to get an hours sleep afterwards I was that tired.

I think whipping it out at the board is a breach of FIDE's rules regarding proper attire.

  tamar: It is illegal, and considered an en prise piece.

  perfidious: <tamar> Should it therefore be snatched en passant, a la Blackburne?
Nov-09-14  dehanne: Blunder aside, was there any way to win for white at all?

  profK: For blunders not much can beat the Petrosian vs Bronstein 1956 effort. David picked up a free queen after being steam-rollered in what was shaping up as a brutal Tigran Kings' Indian crush.

  perfidious: A game which may well have had its effects the following day, as Petrosian went down against friend Geller.
Dec-15-14  GoldenBird: Oh, I think you all need to realize that if short hadn't play 122.Re6, he would've been forced to sell his house, and in this economy, it would be hard to find another house
