Jan-25-05  fgh: lolololololololololol LOL!!!!!!!!
Jan-25-05  Saruman: tsk tsk Not only does Worell leave Bc5 hanging he sacs his Queen!
Jan-25-05  aw1988: ...what?...
Jan-25-05  Kingdumb: Was this a serious game? Surely nobody with a pulse residing on this planet can play so stupidly. I wonder if Worell meant this as a joke. Does anyone have any background info on this disaster?
Feb-28-05  Flo: I'm not sure but I think it was just a bad blunder and he did not see that the Bishop can just take he Queen...
Feb-28-05  Seraphina: Well I'll be the first then to confess that it happened to me lo just 9 months ago, perhaps not quite as blatantly, but it happened. Since it has never happened to the fellow kibitzers on this page, let me explain: Nervousness. It seems to apply pressure to some part of the brain that registers logical sequences. And the field of vision becomes limited as well. Between the two... disaster. You move your queen (in my case I took a bishop that was defended by the opponent's queen), and suddenly you feel as if you're opponent just did an illegal move. (and I had a very good position)

But it's getting better, deep breathing, checking every move five times... you tread carefully thereafter. It's a small trauma. Whenever you move your queen after that, you have the feeling some piece you never saw will be sweeping the poor girl of her feet. Terrible stuff.

Apr-21-05  Karpova: <seraphina>
you are quite courageous!

but you missed the point. black did not only blunder away his queen, he also made a completely useless move. imagine white's bc1 being gone - what could black achieve with his queen stuck on g5? the bc5 is also still hanging...

  vonKrolock: <Seraphina> Look at Reshevsky vs Savon, 1973 maybe Your emotional state on this subject will become a little more humorous (a tragedy?! - well, just a Game...)
Apr-21-05  your brilliance: Oh man! That's gotta hurt.
BTW, Gautam plays for Fiji -- not known as a great chess power so far, but if this guy can inspire such terror in his opponents, maybe that will change.

  vonKrolock: <Seraphina> ...and of course Schlechter vs Pillsbury, 1902 too...
Jun-28-05  fgh: <Karpova>: If the bishop on c1 is gone, then white is a piece down.


Jun-28-05  fgh: This game should be made the game of the day.

  TheAlchemist: The point of 7...Qg5 is that if 8.dxc5 then 8...Qxe5!. But, since there's always a however...
Feb-09-06  blingice: He likely thought he was checking the ♔, as people in openings often play whatever the opening they are playing is. He got it reversed somehow, and didn't look at the board.
Dec-20-06  JustAFish: <KingDumb> I most certanly have a pulse, and I've hung major material like this in many games- often at OTB time controls, and also often when there is no time pressure involved. Sometimes I have this weird propensity to go totally chess blind.

  whiteshark: Here's a little song I wrote
you might want to sing it note for note.
Don't Worell be happy!
In every life we have some trouble
but when you Worell you make it double.
Don't Worell be happy! Don't Worell be happy now!
Apr-25-09  WhiteRook48: the point of 7...Qg5!!! is that if 8 Bxg5 then 8...Nxf2!!
Jul-16-09  WhiteRook48: which is refuted after 9 dxc5!!
May-06-14  GumboGambit: Just to clarify, this is NOT to be confused with the Worall Attack of the Ruy Lopez.

  perfidious: To put it mildly.
