Apr-13-06  AlexanderMorphy: wow what a blunder by a future(at the time it was future now know what i'm trying to say!) world champion!
Oct-09-06  CapablancaFan: 32.Qxc5?? Very unusual for Euwe to make this kind of blunder at his level. This guy was world champion?
Oct-09-06  Plato: <CapablancaFan: This guy was world champion?> I suppose you don't have much regard for Petrosian either, who left his queen en pris to a knight capture? Or for Karpov, who lost a game to Christiansen in 12 moves as a result of blundering a piece? I could go on if you'd like ...

DO you have that Karpov game? He was down in Cape Town once - I think it was on a political mission actually round the time just preceding our first democratic election (what is it with these chess players and politics) - and he showed a game to a group of us. I think it was the one you are referring to. With his own sense of humour he went into long strategic descriptions of this (and other) positions and then showed us the fork.

I remember Kasparov blundering away a pawn in the opening phases of one of the K-K world championships. The US Chess magazine went on to point our just how elementary the blunder was (while we were gasping at the depth of the chess).

May-08-08  FHBradley: Or Capablanca blundering his knight at move 12. Anyone has his/her bad days. People who ridicule these extremely strong chess masters should find out what Réti wrote about Rubinstein in "New Ideas in Chess".
Jun-03-08  Xeroxx: whst did Réti write about rubinstein in "New Ideas in Chess"?
Mar-06-10  Cardinal Fang: What makes this one so horrible is that Euwe has clearly seen one move before that the pawn couldn't be taken, and has made a move so that he can safely take the pawn next time...
