Really Extreme case of chess blindness

    I just played a weird/terrible/crazy game here (10 min blitz) and won.

     

    I'm not particulary proud of this game(although I played nice in the end), but I do think it's incredible how me and my opponent missed a queen on prise for like 12 moves each ! 

     

    I mean, I'm not a giant of chess, but I'd call myself an experienced player, my blitz chess rating is generally arround 1600, my opponent was also a 1600 player.

     

    Still, we managed to play like 24 moves, without either of us noticing a queen on prise! 

     

    I annotated the game with some (or a lot) of my thoughts.

     

    By the way, I'm playing during nightshifts, that's my excuse ! Don't know about my opponent though.

    This is maybe because both of you are fairly strong players so you don't expect each other to blunder your queen so putting her majesty in take simply escaped your eyes. It happens to everyone. For example, see this GM game, it's even more crazy :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ix69sCFahw&feature=BFa&list=FLzey7hVJUIQV7T4qKZQ4SWw

    @ JMB, yeah 3 ..Nc6 is indeed also a blunder, d6 needs to be played first. I learned this in the meantime as well.
