Anyone who can?
|May-31-06|| ||prinsallan: Surely 58. Rf7 must have been better.|
|May-31-06|| ||percyblakeney: This was a truly amazingly terribly bad game :-)|
|May-31-06|| ||percyblakeney: First Kosteniuk drops a piece (moves 26-30), then loses the exchange (moves 43-44), but keeps playing a full rook down. At move 58 Repkova gives back the rook in a blunder not much better than Aleksandrov's Bc8, and then drops a knight at move 71...|
|May-31-06|| ||Pepino: prinallan,
I also dont see why 58.Nf2 was played. It looks ridiculous!
|Jun-01-06|| ||Marvol: Speculation: white thought that black's previous queen move attacks her queen.|
Hence Nf2, because it covers the queen, which was unmarked.
Maybe in scrambling time trouble the only thing white saw was a blur of black's queen moving towards d8-c8 and didn't realise that the diagonal from d8 does not lead to g4 :-/.
Still a silly move as exchanging queens would be a lot better a rook up, but that's the only thing I can think of.

IMO, Repkova's blunder is even worse. Aleksandrov went from a bad position, to totally lost position. While Repkova went from won position to a slightly worse position.
<Marvol> Perhaps Repkova was considering 58. Nc3 after which black doesn't have 58...Qxc7? because of 59. Nb5+ fork. This lead her to imagine that if she moves the knight the rook is untouchable, hence the blunder.

Aleksandrov vs L Williams, 2006
|Nov-12-06|| ||FSR: Man (or woman, should I say), that was a horrible game.|
|Apr-19-07|| ||BadTemper: Sorry, but 58. Nf2 gets ???
Missing one move threats of the 1000 rating variety deserve three questions marks. I mean, the Queen was touching the rook for hecks sake! It's not like it was a geometrical blunder..
|Apr-19-07|| ||VinnyRoo2002: See, Fischer could beat any woman in the world giving Knight odds. This game proves it. Seriously though, this might be the worst game I've ever seen between two people rated this high, ignoring gender, age, etc.|
|Apr-19-07|| ||BadTemper: agreed. wow. if this was the first game i ever saw on chessgames.com i dont think i would be a chess lover. its only because the first game i looked at was beautiful. this is uglier then my ex.|
|Apr-19-07|| ||Marmot PFL: I guarantee that the score sheet was wrong, or was copied incorrectly. Players at this level don't make those blunders.|
|Apr-19-07|| ||BadTemper: <Marmot PFL>
Nope. This game is accurate. I verified multiple sources.
|Jan-27-11|| ||Cardinal Fang: Don't let Richard Keys and Andy Gray see this game.|
|Mar-14-12|| ||soberknight: I can lose games like this. You mean it wasn't blitz?|
