Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-03-05  Granite: Ok this is one of the worst games in the database - he just leaves the bishop instead of capturing back and suddenly he's down a pawn and a piece when all he had to do was recapture. Something is very wrong about this game.
Feb-28-05  admeyer: I agree. Losing in 12 moves is bad enough. The fact that this was a correspondence game just adds insult to injury. This guy sat around all day, moving pieces all over the board to end up blundering so badly? I just don't get it.
Feb-28-05  offramp: I remember Nigel Short writing about Correspondence Chess; he said that despite all the advantages Coores players have - playing at home, days for each move, books to consult etc etc - nearly all the games are of very low quality. This game would seem to prove him right.
Feb-28-05  TheSlid: Maybe this was blindfold correspondence chess - where you are not allowed to look at the board or any of the previous letters.
Feb-28-05  azaris: <blindfold correspondence chess> I think that's when you write the moves in braille.

  FSR: If the score is accurate, either Black (a) is a really horrible player or (b) somehow made a notation error in his scorebook, thinking he'd already captured the bishop.
