Jan-07-04  AdrianP: 87... Ke6?? 88 Bf5# (not Bf5+ as in the score)

The biggest oops of the tournament?

Jan-07-04  Phoenix: Nice mate though!
Dec-17-08  WhiteRook48: Strange. I wonder if this gets into Cherniaev's notable games just because of ...Ke6????????
Dec-24-08  WhiteRook48: Was Conquest running out of time?
Dec-24-08  zoat22: Seems like an insult to Cherniaev to have this as his only notable game...
Jan-07-09  WhiteRook48: after all Conquest was higher rated and lost... I'm sure Cherniaev pulled this off in other games...
Feb-01-09  WhiteRook48: 87...Kf8 was obviously better
Apr-07-09  Augalv: <Seems like an insult to Cherniaev to have this as his only notable game...>Indeed.
Apr-07-09  KingG: It's a notable game because it's in a lot of games collections. If people want other games to become notable they should add them in their own games collections.

Maybe someone who has a collection for rude behaviour could add Cherniaev vs K McPhillips, 2008. Alternatively it could be for shockingly bad endgame technique from a GM.

  GrahamClayton: There are limits for an active king in the endgame :-)
Apr-30-11  sevenseaman: Cherniev has fashioned out a beautiful ending. Of course it needed the K to walk in to e6.
May-01-11  Tigranny: I agree too WhiteRook48, zoat22, and Augalv. Short vs Beliavsky, 1992 is another game when one of the players plays Ke6??, allowing mate the next move.
