  tpstar: This miniature is so brutal, and 11. Na3?? is so blunderful, that I wonder if the players' names are reversed.

"blunderful"

I like that.

Nov-08-04  azaris: <I wonder if the players' names are reversed> I see no reason why it would be. This particular game seems oddly missing from Bill's home page of traps despite having some other games against the same guy which Bill won. Maybe he doesn't want the world to see he can take it as well as he can dish it out.

<Maybe he doesn't want the world to see he can take it as well as he can dish it out.>

What I think is that this game doesn't fall so much under the category of "trap" as it does under the category of poor play. (while a trap is also poor play, it seems, it's usually something more subtle)

Mr. Wall used to publish series of games he would play on certain themes (such as a particular opening), giving all the scores, whether he won or lost; played smartly or "blunderously". This would lead me to believe that what you wrote doesn't apply.

Mr. Wall certainly isn't one of the greatest chess players ever, but he is a decent, and long-time tournament player who enjoys sharing what he's learn from both experience and from his rather large library and whose vast contributions to various areas of chess, particularly on the internet (though also in print), are often minimalized and chipped away at for flaws.

Mar-02-05  Dudley: The names must be reversed-look at the other two Wall vs. Milimaci games. This guy couldn't beat Wall in a million years, especially like this. Wall is incapable of playing that badly.

  wwall: I missed it. Pure chess blindness. After a few hundred games with the same guy, you are bound do make a stupid mistake sooner or later. I can fall for a trap, too.
