Jun-07-04  capablancakarpov: 70.Qf2+ one of the worst GM blunders ive ever seen, 70...QxQ wins the game easily, and is a combination that all chess player can see.
Jun-07-04  zzz: sheesh, any Z[-:)]class player can see that....maybe there was a time constraint on henry bird? What a shocking result
Jun-07-04  notsodeepthought: Unbelievably, black gets a second chance at a winning queen exchange (offered by white!) at move 72 - and again blows it.
Nov-26-07  Judah: Although Black muffed it badly when he inexplicably decided not to exchange Queens at moves 70 and 72, he still had a won game, albeit a much harder win to convert. He didn't blow the game until move 99, when he allowed White's King to penetrate.
Feb-04-08  hedgeh0g: I was wondering why black never exchanged seems so obvious that there must be some sort of explanation for it. Perhaps there is an error in the game's notation.
Feb-04-08  sneaky pete: Exchange queens? Do you think Mr Bird was a sissy?
Feb-20-08  Knight13: <sneaky pete: Exchange queens? Do you think Mr Bird was a sissy?> No.
May-17-09  WhiteRook48: 70...Qf2+??

  wwall: 99...Qe5+ draws. Black had to play something like 88...Qh7 100.Qd5 Qg6 to win.
