Feb-13-08  Karpova: Possibly Nimzowitsch's first published game and probably the one he talks about in "Kak ya stal grosmeysterom" (Leningrad, 1929, on page 8).

The source of the game: (scroll down to 3859)

Regarding Nimzowitsch mentioning the game: (scroll down to 5276)

Feb-13-08  mito1985: Bird Opening??? this seems a scandinavian for me
Feb-20-08  Knight13: What the heck is 4...f5 and ...Qd6-b4 ??
Feb-18-10  siegbert: black looks lost to me even after a better move than 17 fxe3. 17 nf6 suggests itself.the pawn at c5 and the rook at a8 are big juicy targets for whites queen.

  TheTamale: Wow, this NN was the king of all NNs. Even I don't make moves as poor as 17) fxe3.
Jun-24-12  e4 resigns: NN's rating is 500 points one day, 2500 the next...

I'm sure you don't. Then again, in the 2017 World Cup, two 2700+ GMs allowed mate in one.

I've done it myself, and I'm not a master. Are you sure you're immune?

  OhioChessFan: I know someone on this site, who isn't great but isn't a beginner, who hung a piece on his 9th move against Little Chess Partner.

<OhioChessFan> I know a person whose estimated life score against Little Chess Partner was +1-500=0.

Guess who?
