  tpstar: Blunder Collection, anyone?

He was thinking, "Oh no, the chess world will think I'm old and inactive."

Nov-08-04  iron maiden: Yep. So he's not inactive after all; just old. :-)
Jan-19-05  aw1988: Lol tpstar, I was about to say the same thing.
Jan-19-05  Saruman: The only thing Larsen would have had to know was that one should only attack the BASE of the pawnchain!
Feb-19-07  Recoiler: Maybe Larsen had bifocals, and couldn't see the short side of the board. ;)
Jun-15-08  ravel5184: I have this strange feeling that he thought ... Rxe1 was mate (this explains 19 ... Bxc3)
Jun-15-08  vonKrolock: <20...>??????????: 20...f5! (ll, y can fnd btt gams by SG and BL)
