  FSR: Oops.
Dec-14-17  Delboy: One blunder in an otherwise average game. There are thousands of remarkable games in your database far more deserving of the "Game of the Day" accolade
Dec-14-17  eykca: <Delboy> what an odd thing to take offense to... lol
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: No giblets for Karl that day.
Dec-14-17  goodevans: I'm with <Delboy> on this one. Another case of GOTD being chosen just for the pun, which in this case was rather obvious. What an utter waste of time!
Dec-14-17  schnarre: ...Loved the pun all the same!

Plus 1.

Or "like". Or "thumbs up". In other words, I agree!

  offramp: The fog of war is a phenomenon often encountered on a battlefield where gaseous emissions from cannons, rifles, pistols and humans create a low lying fog-like mist.

This mist may contain carcinogens and the current scientific thinking is that one should turn 180 degrees around and run rapidly away from any such approaching fog.

Dec-14-17  orbisignis89: this will probably be the most remarkable achievement in the chess careers of Martin Fogg and Karl Lundback. Rejoice!
Dec-14-17  TheTamale: Another vote in support of <Delroy>. This is like watching a game between me and my computer.

  mjmorri: <TheTamale> I wish my computer would play Ra4 once in a while.

  Check It Out: After reading the pun I expected a dashing battle of chess pieces, creating a light poisonous mist around my iPhone, which I would then quickly discard per <Offramp>. There may be a specific protocol for dealing with tech devices inundated with an actual fog of war, but I wouldn’t have had time to go get another device to look up the deets. I would then have to laboriously test out iPhone 17 or wherever were at number-wise by now, Androids, Samsung, and whatever else mobile device tripe is on the market to replace my hastily tossed cell.

Foooortunately, this boring game had no fog of war, merely a mud puddle of a blunder. Whew! my phone is safe for now!

Dec-14-17  Ironmanth: Actually nice to have a game where it is a one-move blunder. Keeps us all sharp. Don't offer too many, however! Holiday wishes to all. ITH
Dec-14-17  dumbgai: Yeah, this looks like a game between two non-master players.

  ajk68: Black should learn that little move called castling.

14...O-O-O was called for with slight advantage.

Sort of like your post.

  OhioChessFan: <ajk> an inexplicable choice. He left the c7 square undefended, which was the source of future headaches. Maybe he had designs of 0-0.
