|Jan-31-05|| ||notyetagm: That Chigorin game has to be the worst blunder of all-time. He had a winning position and would've tied the WC match with a, as long as he doesn't move his bishop off the h2-b8 diagonal. But that's exactly what he did and then it's the standard mate in 3 from the doubled seventh rank wooks. |
|Jan-31-05|| ||aw1988: Mate in 2. |
|Jan-31-05|| ||tpstar: Chigorin vs Steinitz, 1892
Let's commend both players for their fighting spirit, as White spurned two repetitions trying to convert the win, meanwhile Black put up fierce resistance until a fatal oversight. I agree with <azaris> that we all make blunders (OK, raise your hand if you don't) and maybe White really wore him down with patient piece play. Perhaps we would see more ?? mistakes if GMs actually played out endgames. ;>)
|Feb-01-05|| ||alexmagnus: The game was played 1892? OK, I thought it was 1895...
What about the worst move: I canīt see any self-mating possibility in this (Karjakin-Nielsen) game, so Kg5?? was really the worst.
I donīt blame Karjakin for anything, I just search for the reason which could lead him to this awful blunder. Maybe if I find the reason why he blundered I will know why I make one or another ?? move. |
|Feb-01-05|| ||Poulsen: To alexmagnus: ok, let's say, that your real strength is somewhat better than 1200 - f.x. 1500, would that be fair?|
Well, I would claim, that if you play regulary against players of approx. the same strenght, you to make huge blunders. And I would think, that if we were to go over - say a hundred of - your most recent games, it will be possible to find serveral huge blunders.
The fact, that your opponent didn't find your faulty moves, does not prove your point.
|Feb-04-05|| ||patzer2: I agree with <Tamar>, that although the blunder was unfortunate, Neilson had a won position anyway. So, if as a result of this Karjakin got some needed rest and relaxation which helped him win other games, then maybe this little mistake wasn't so bad. |
The most interesting tactic for me was 20.
Nb7+!, which was a Knight Fork used to set up an exchange sacrifice, which in turn sets up a pin to win two pieces for the Rook. White capitalized upon this small advantage, and had a difficult but won ending--at which point Karjakin made the unfortunate mistake of hanging his Rook.
|Dec-09-05|| ||babakova: I dont blame Heine... Horsies move strangely.|
|Jan-01-09|| ||WhiteRook48: what a blunder!!! And <babakova> do you mean "I don't blame Sergey" because HE fell for the "hanging rook" thing|
|Feb-21-09|| ||WhiteRook48: ever thought about hanging a rook?|
|Feb-22-09|| ||WhiteRook48: oh, it Nielsen was not going to take the rook anyway? Did it take him long to find 101. Nxa1?|
|Mar-09-09|| ||WhiteRook48: this game is just crazy|
|Apr-07-09|| ||Augalv: Even future world champions blunder :P|
|Apr-08-09|| ||whiteshark: ...even if they won't become it. :D|
|Apr-25-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 101...Kg3# wins|
|May-01-09|| ||whiteshark: how creative...|
|May-01-09|| ||whiteshark: ... and interesting ...|
|May-01-09|| ||whiteshark: ...and stupid...|
|May-01-09|| ||whiteshark: ...disappointing but unsurprising ...|
|May-01-09|| ||whiteshark: ... spamming, that's the word I sought.|
|Oct-07-10|| ||eightbyeight: You know, usually, it's BLACK who captures a rook on a1 with a knight and wins. (After 1. ... Nxc2+ 2. Kd1 Nxa1.) You just have to love Kg5!|
|Apr-16-11|| ||Tigranny: Woah! What a blunder 100...Kg5?? was!|
|Apr-16-11|| ||Phony Benoni: In my view, question marks should not be allowed at move 100. You should get an exclamation point just for making a legal move.|
|Dec-28-13|| ||MarkFinan: 100.Nxa1 You just have to feel for the guy!? After a long grueling game against a brilliant young player. But it's games like this im currently looking for, just to remind me these top GM's are human beings. I have to switch my brain off after an hour and half because I drop pieces like a drunken blind man who's been spun around 101 times, had his paws dipped in oil, only to be told his house is currently on fire! LOL.|
|Oct-06-15|| ||alexmagnus: When in the last World Cup Svidler blundered a Rook out of nothing, Karjakin may have been reminded of this blunder of his own.|
|May-24-18|| ||JPi: Still it should be winning as 3 pieces to attack f4 to two to defend it. In long term we have B+N+p(g file) vs R which is technically a won ending.|
