  WannaBe: 8. ... Qc7??

  WannaBe: <aw1988> LOL
Jun-15-05  fgh: Ehm? Horrible move by black.
Aug-07-06  Ybrevo: I guess Black thought White had played the other well known Ne4 instead, when Qc7 is OK. If 9. Nxf6+, gxf6, you have something similiar to the Bronstein-Larsen Variation of the Caro Kann. But remember: Always look at the board ...
Nov-20-06  Landman: Maybe he didn't have enough postage to mail the Queen all the way back to d8.
Jan-02-07  Infohunter: Hard to believe--and with no time pressure yet!
May-23-07  PAWNTOEFOUR: ah,just a little mental lapse! i have 'em all the time lol
Aug-09-07  Whitehat1963: A blunder unworthy of a Gronemann.
Jun-01-08  irishspy: A game for the ages.
Jul-24-09  WhiteRook48: 8...Qc7??
Sep-25-10  eightbyeight: Ah, the timeless rule: DON'T BRING YOUR QUEEN OUT TOO EARLY! You might lose it AND a rook!

  Eggman: Maybe White played 8.Ne4 and 'adjusted' the knight to d5 when his opponent looked away.
Mar-17-19  BickeDag: I can't believe that 8. ...Qc7 was played by a grown man!
