Feb-05-05  Glycerius: Is it just me, or did Areshchenko just leave his Cavalier totally en prise with his last move?
Feb-05-05  Leviathan: You indeed mean Lahno, not Areshchenko. Anyway, that's the demonstration that even strong players can blunder just like humans :)

  alexmagnus: After the game Kateryna commented her blunder in this game. She thought during the game that 30...Rxc5 was not playable because of 31.Rxd8 and overlooked the bishop on h4... Still, that Kramatorsk-2003 tournament was the one where she made he (at the moment only) GM-norm...

Jun-15-08  sfm: I have once read that long diagonal retreats are easily overlooked. This would be an example.
