  Stonehenge: 44...Qxf4 45.Rxf4 Bxb2 looks slightly better.
Sep-21-10  mig26: Bd4 ???? The blunder of the century
Sep-22-10  JonathanGM: 44.... Bd4?? 45.Qc7# It's one of those great "What were they thinking?" moments. Remember Emre Can is a GM and Lin is a lowly 1736 rated player!

Another classic one was Benjamin vs. Gulko USCF Championships 2000. J Benjamin vs Gulko, 2000

And, of course, Kramnik vs. Deep Fritz 2006

Sep-22-10  apexin: what i find strange is that white was slightly better, and lasted 40 moves against a GM. not many ~1700 players can do that.
Sep-22-10  hedgeh0g: Looking through this game, it seems very well-played for a "1736" player. I'd wager Lin is considerably stronger than his provisional rating would suggest.
Sep-22-10  drmariogodrob: If you ask me, this is a very understandable blunder. Lin played a very strong game, though blundered with 28. Qf2 and lost material. Can must have been relieved by this. Then, inexplicably, Lin fights back to even after putting Mamedov under pressure until the mistake 37. ... fxe5 (where ...Kg8 seems fine). After getting back to material equality, Mamedov sees a line that `wins' a gain of material again and takes it immediately `against this insolent kid who won't die.' His sense of danger let him down, in his desire to finally wipe this kid off the board. A well-earned blunder, I feel.
