Apr-29-06  Knight13: 35... Qc7?? You gotta be kidding me!!
Aug-30-06  Stevens: Isn't ICCF Correspondence too?! Maybe we do have a chance against Nickel!
Aug-31-06  Leviathan: Since it was correspondence I assume that black just wrote down the wrong move: perhaps he wanted to play 35. .. Qd7 but wrote c instead of d.

Or maybe black couldn't be asked to keep on struggling for months in a lost position and didn't want to dishonor himself by resigning in a still playable position either, so he found a more 'elegant' solution.

A small, accidental typo can happen anytime to anyone, can't it? *cough* :)

Nov-19-06  syracrophy: 35...Qc7?? Maybe he was just trying something, just like in the game E Z Adams vs Carlos Torre, 1920
Nov-01-07  Cibator: Queer things can happen in correspondence play .... One common error is to analyse a winning sequence, then write down the move that's supposed to come AFTER the one that begins that sequence. Or else you write down your opponent's reply as if it were your own move .... endless variations!

I agree with you. "Clerical error" has claimed many victims in CC play.

Mar-03-12  Alphonse1973: Apart from the blunder, White was winning: Why didn't he play 26. f4? And Black loses a piece or is mated. White could have played that move five times: from moves 26 to 30.
