Castling mishaps
Compiled by SwitchingQuylthulg
--*--

Sometimes it's surprisingly hard to visualize the position after castling... or then you just fall asleep.

This collection only showcases players of reasonable strength miscastling; sure, there are many recorded cases of really atrocious castling by weaklings (behold C Dinwoodie vs G Salmon, 1941, G Morrison vs G Chandler, 1978 and P Rossi vs A Guerra, 2005) but they aren't even <supposed> to see it coming.

(Yes, I know Steinitz vs H Voigt, 1885 isn't in here. I'm not sure why, but I suppose I had some really good reason for excluding it so I'm not changing my mind now :p)
