    Thought I'd start a thread where we can post games where you or your oppontent plundered a draw or win from a lost position.

    One I managed
    Game 2568879

    and one I gave away....

    Game 870582

    he completely outplayed you only to make gross I-can't-believe-he-is-rated-over-1000-or-maybe-he-was-totally-wasted blunder.

    sad...

    Here is one, where I was definitely sweating, but managed to pull out the win.Game 854371

    Well it's not a blunder but...

    Game 2583019

    I COMPLETELY MISSED A FREE ROOK!

    He let me have it the next move anyways though

    This one, I particularly like, the game begun with an initial blunder on my part to lose my rook but I managed to retrieve the situation:
    Game 2359105

    The following one is an absolute disaster, I think I was drunk when I made the final move but it was still unforgiveable...

    Game 2384618

    That was a fantastic rook sacrifice. However, you won not because of a blunder by your opponent but because of a great move on your part.

    Sometimes it pays to play until the last move, even if the position is a lost one.
    Miracles might happen.

    Game 1329069 with a spectacular 55th move by me.

    Another gem was my 19th move in this game: Game 2494154
    This time I was the lucky player though.
