    Has anyone got any games that they really should have won but threw it away at the very last?

    Heres one where I didn't pay enough attention to the time controls and timed out:

    [Event "uChess rated"]
    [Site "www.uchess.com"]
    [Date "2007.8.3"]
    [Round "?"]
    [White "Jake Ellison"]
    [Black "Checkers"]
    [Result "0-1"]

    1. b2-b4 d7-d5 2. d2-d4 e7-e5 3. c2-c3 e5xd4 4. c3xd4 Bf8xb4 5. Bc1-d2 Qd8-e7 6. Bd2xb4 Qe7xb4 7. Nb1-d2 Qb4xd4 8. Ng1-f3 Qd4-b4 9. Ra1-b1 Qb4-a5 10. a2-a4 Bc8-d7 11.

    You should have lost after 1. b4

    Probably, but I love that opening. Even if I've never won with it.

    That looked like white's game to me. There must have been a mate in there somewhere after Qe7+

    It was two/three moves to mate when I timed out.
