|Jul-24-14|| ||perfidious: <zanzibar> True, nor the two who came afterwards, either.|
|Jul-26-14|| ||Fisticuffs: for even as low of an elo of 2000 this is just disgusting to see|
|Jul-26-14|| ||perfidious: The man blundered.
Get over it.
|Jul-29-14|| ||Whitehat1963: <<FSR>: Black's fourth move was a slight inaccuracy.>|
Nominee for Understatement of the Year!
|Jul-29-14|| ||Whitehat1963: To me, this is an example of just how quickly an average player gets into deep Scheiße with a GM. No matter how benign a GM's moves may look at times, in most positions, the average player is typically only a few moves away from complete and utter catastrophe when playing a GM. Their every move is filled with subtlety and venom.|
|Jul-30-14|| ||Pulo y Gata: You don't have to be a GM to win like this; you just need a weak or cooperating opponent.|
|Sep-18-14|| ||sakredkow: There should be a thread where we can post our worst, most devastating loss - the real heartbreaker that only the brave would post. |
I lost one two weeks ago, I want to cry still. I don't even know how I'm ever going to play again.

chessgames would have to buy a bigger server. Just for mine.
|Sep-18-14|| ||perfidious: <sakredkow> Here is probably the second-worst of my less than star-studded career, the other being in one of my scorebooks consigned to who knows which corner of oblivion: I Foygel vs A Shaw, 2000.|
|Jan-21-15|| ||paavoh: This was sort of hilarious - a move so bad that you could call it an "overshite", if you pardon my French.|
|Jun-13-15|| ||waustad: My best like this is on my profile page.|
|Jun-13-15|| ||FairyPromotion: The pun is awesome. However the choice for GotD is either 73 days too late, or 293 days too soon.|
|Jun-13-15|| ||lost in space: LHM, why does this never happen to me? I mean this from the white side, of course.|
|Jun-13-15|| ||mruknowwho: A smothered checkmate; a tear sheds from my eye for Black.|
|Jun-13-15|| ||RookFile: Keres was a slacker - he needed 6 moves to win instead:|
Keres vs E Arlamowski, 1950
|Jun-13-15|| ||Geraldambayec: same short game|
|Jun-13-15|| ||Sneaky: My friend Fabio has this notch in his belt: F La Rota vs J Sarwer, 1988|
|Jun-13-15|| ||kevin86: Sudden death! A quick smothered mate...but can't beat this:|
1 c4 ♘c6 2 e3 ♘b4 3 ♘e2 ♘d3#
|Jun-13-15|| ||Travis Bickle: Rogers said after the game, "I didn't prepare for that line"... ; P|
|Jun-13-15|| ||offramp: Very good pun.
I like these "ultra-short" games. I used to have a book called "Mille Miniaturas" written in that real oddity: Spanish Descriptive.
A very good book.
|Jun-14-15|| ||offramp: I play the Caro-Kann and I know that one can easily sleepwalk into sudden big problems. The thing is, one can often play the same moves game after game, almost ignoring what the opponent is doing. The Rat Defence is similar. I think this game shows the problem. When Rapport played 3.Qe2 black may have said to himself. "That's no problem. I can just carry on." It was unfortunate that he thought of the idea of ...Nbd7, to be followed by ...Ngf6 and after Ne4xf6+, ...Nb7xd6. He was probably shocked to find tactics overwhelming theory and strategy so quickly.|
|Jun-14-15|| ||MissScarlett: <offramp: Very good pun.>|
It was: H Karner vs Mass, 1971
|Jun-15-15|| ||morfishine: From an instructive point of view, this game is worthless. Toss in another worn-out, dreary play-on-word, and what do you end up with? ans: nothing|
|Jun-15-15|| ||whiteshark: Hey c'mon, it's Funday morning, but where ze h3ll's my wake-up coffee??|
|Mar-28-16|| ||Razgriz: This should be a Monday puzzle.|
