    Game 3337198

    I wanted to play 27...Rc5+, but moved my rook to b5 and (as I thought that rook is on c5) clicked submit button. Morale: Dont play chess at work.

    Sorry Korch - But I must say, I do get some satisfaction from seeing the strongest players make mistakes! If only to soften the blow of my own shortcomings! Game 3887535 Morale: No watching TV while playing!

    I have done the same. I intended to play 44. Rf2 in Game 2573547 but dropped the R on f3 by mistake throwing away an "easy" win.

    It was careless as the bottom rank was off the foot of my screen at the time.

    Hey, playing at work is the only option I have... although I do make mistakes like that as well... Game 3564486...I'm still wondering why I made my 27th move.

    Sweet, the number 8 player on the site just gave me an excuse to lose every single one of my 100+ games!

    Thanks Korch!

    I think this "excuse" can work only for 1-2 times

    This game against Quirine is probably the most disapointing and embarassing loss I've ever had. :'(

    Why?

    He had compensation for his queen and you got lost position after 14.Qe1? Nc2. I dont see difference between this game and many other games which you have lost.

    It is possible to confuse the submit button, with the reset button on the analysis board apparently too...
