Jun-26-06  notyetagm: 53 ♔f3??, lining up the White king with White e4-queen along the a8-h1 diagonal, violates the tactical rule "Never line up your king and queen!".

Here the punishment is swift. Black uses the looseness of the c6-pinning square to <DECOY> the White e4-queen to c6 with 53 ... ♗c6!. White resigned since after 54 ♕x♗ the Lady vanishes as a result of the <SKEWER> 54 ... ♕h1+ and 55 ... ♕x♕.

Jun-01-07  Knight13: Playing the endgame QBPs vs QBPs in the GTM was hard! I couldn't find a way to improve the position and thought "How did Black win this game?" so I just played reasonable moves and voila! There's the blunder...

This game shold've been a draw.
