This game was potential Blog material in the RHP Championship:
There Is Hope For Us All.
No GM should make such a an OTB blunder. Though there are some incredible
OTB blunders on record.
Missing mates in one (Please no one mention Kramnik there are dozens of others)
Playing leaving Queens hanging (Petrosian did this once) etc etc etc.
Playing 40+ games at once as carpmaniac is doing and a disaster is bound to happen.
I've played at least 5 game losing blunders I would never make OTB
when concentrating on a single game.
I've knowingly played very dodgy moves that have backfired but
that is not a blunder, these I did on purpose.
You sit there stunned at your blunder but as I win 96% of my games through
a tactical blunder I don't mind giving one or two (or four or five) back.
(The other 4% are timeouts I always take a skull. They have left their clock en prise.)
