  Benzol: Ortvin Sarapu won exactly the same way against Peter Goffin at the Auckland Easter Tournament in 1975. It wasn't blitz either. There must be something very tempting about grabbing that loose but poisoned e-pawn.
Sep-19-06  Philid0r: so what? can anyone explain why you would give up after losing a knight? Especially in a blitz where the oponent can blunder a any moment to... what's the big deal?
Sep-20-06  TrueFiendish: "The positional layout was perfect; it was unfortunately spoiled by a tactical circumstance..." I think he resigned in shame and embarrassment.
Oct-20-12  kellmano: Just fell for this exact line in a 3 minute chess cube game. Definitely not resignable though and I won. White's Queen is open to attack in the centre of the board and Black has an extra central pawn.

Poor old Veugen. One game in the database and it's a 4 move defeat.
