  Sneaky: Here's one for the GM blunders file.
76. c6?? throws the win away.

  kevin86: This game could have been won on auto-pilot. White made a real error! Three pieces and he moves the wrong one!

He blindly mistook this position for the one:Pawns on a5 and c5-white can advance c6 as the king cannot mve to b6

Jun-10-06  SaltiNeil: After 75.c5 it's as simple as walking the white king around to the D file and the c pawn queens.

  kevin86: What I would have done is most simple:Ignore the a-pawn until this position is reached:

Then I would push the a-pawn.

Nov-26-07  centercounter: The score is wrong. Dreev actually played Kc4 and Black resigned... Didn't he? Please tell me he did...

There were so many ways to make Wessman resign, and actually, Wessman should have already resigned out of sportsmanship.

  amadeus: Unbelievable :o
Jan-20-09  WhiteRook48: I guess White got frustrated by the K's blockading position that he blundered.
Feb-19-09  WhiteRook48: even a patzer like myself would not play 76. c6
Mar-23-09  WhiteRook48: 74 Kc4 is probably better
Jan-04-12  master of defence: 76. c6?? draws a game absolutely won. Much better is 76. a5, winning more faster.
