    I know this has been brought up a hundred times but what's your silliest loss?

    For me - Game 4709078

    P.s. I just feel so bad I had to post this.

    Game 4617545

    This takes the biscuit. 700 rating points lower than me, 3 pieces up when checkmated with queen and rook.
    My only defence would be drink, which I don't accept as a justification from anyone else, so rule it inadmissible in my own defence

    Should have offered a draw

    I was 1650 when I played this stunna against a 1250 a couple of weeks ago.
    Bye bye 25 points.

    Your 1250 opponent was actually a 1400 player...Just check the graph...Perhaps that will make you feel a little better !

    I've managed to train myself. Doesn't matter that it was £1 a pint at my college bar tonight, there is no way I can get drunk enough to move on RHP. I just don't do it. I'd be unconsicous before I'd be drunk enough to move.

    I should have skipped reading this thread altogether....it was pretty painful looking at some of my earlier losses here. Out of several great candidates, I decided this one's the worst. Plenty of mistakes here.... but the last one, yikes.

    I have a similar policy, but was too drunk to conform with it. That's the irony of ethanol.

    This is my most howling and most embarrasing defeat that I failed to notice!
    Kudos to my opponent who was a few hundred points lower rated IIRC

    LOL been there, caught up in your own game, insufficient respect for your opponent and bang - back to reality

    Of course it can be argued that the Queen should not be considered protected as only a pinned rook is protecting it.

    Once again it looks like you didn't give enough respect to your opponent because there were a few loose moves on your part before you made your final nail in your coffin

    You can be forgiven as your opponent is usually higher rated but the actual mate net was well set up, hats off to him/her for pulling it off

    This one haunts me:

    Game 3248756

    I had this game so won that I didn't even contemplate the fact I could get mated!
