    I just moved my horse to a square where it was hung vs jpvergouwen. I was clearly winning before that.

    Bwaaa, I wanna quit chess now. :'(

    Made a similar boo boo in an OTB game.

    That was a Bishop on f8 not a Rook.

    Yeah, I had planned 17.Nf4 but at the last second saw 17.Nc4 and thought "that's even better"...lol

    Here's the game, now finished, skip to move 30. dxc6

    I'll be annoyed about this for a few days now



    30. Nxd7 was at least 4,096 times better than the one I played

    ...Oh and yes, I blitzed the move in like 5 seconds or so

    We all do it. I left a Q en prise. Euwe (then World's Champion) blundered a piece away against Lasker (then sixty-something) in a famous game. We wake up in a cold sweat remembering those blunders for years. Get used to it; comes with the turf.

    Oh I'm used to it. That's why my nic is blunderdog. But I'll never like it.

    Kramnik once missed a mate-in-one against Deep Fritz so even the best can blunder.
