  Mateo: Bologan blundered twice in two moves, and three times in 5 moves. Does anyone know if there is a known record at IGM level? This would be a funny collection.

35. a6? Rxb5! 36. a7? Ra5 37. Qxa5 Bxa5 38. Rxa5 Ra8 39. Rb3 Qd8 40. Ra1? Rxa7! <41.Rxa7 Qd1+ 42.Kg2 Qxb3 .> 0-1

  plang: Well, I suppose if we could come to an agreement as to what a "blunder" is we could have an interesting discussion. Some people feel that 1 e4 is a "blunder".

  plang: By that definition you can only make one "blunder" in a game since you can only lose a game once (unless your oppenent answers your "blunder" with a "counterblunder").

  Mateo: <plang: By that definition you can only make one "blunder" in a game since you can only lose a game once (unless your oppenent answers your "blunder" with a "counterblunder").> At each time, Bologan's blunder is a loss of material without any compensation. When I read your acid kibitz, I understand better why you chosed a lemon as a picture. Everybody knows what is blunder.

  plang: Sorry, I meant no disrespect. But I stand by my statement that the definition of a "blunder" is subjective and the idea of determining a "record" for blunders is unrealistic. PS: I make a mean lemonade.
Oct-19-06  lopium: 20.Rxd5, Nxd5 21.Qxd5, Bxg3 22.Qxd8, Rfxd8 23.hxg I donĀ“t understand why not 20.Rxd5. Anyone can show me what happens if Rxd5?
Oct-19-06  Karpova: <lopium> the problem is that 23.fg is followed by 23....c6! and white loses a piece (best would be 24.Bc4 (that's why 23.fg instead of hg) 24....Rb2:
Oct-19-06  wharfrat: <lopium> If you continue with your suggested line, after 23...c6; 24.Be5 (other moves lose the Exchange), c:b; 25.B:b8, R:b8; 26.a:b, R:b5, Black is up a healthy pawn in a R+P ending.
