    It is "encouraging" for me to know that even GM's blunder once in awhile. Thank you Mr. Finegold. I truly appreciate the work you do in producing these videos.

    @ericlu2010 White is only slightly worse after Nd5, as I play Qxb4.  I did not see Nb5!! which prevents Qxb4!.

    Very instructive. In the first game the g3 move makes one see only the obvious fianchettoing of the bishop. In the second, Nb5 is not a common way of moving the knight to deliver discovered check. 2 more patterns to add to our list to remember.

    Sorry guys.  I have made so many videos, sometimes things come up more than once!  Of course, this was my quickest blunder/loss ever, and it is also funny in a Chigorin context.

    I think I will make another Chigorin video with 3.Nc3, since many have asked.

    Losing in 10 moves or quickly (less than 2 hours) is better in a sense that you didn't use all your energy for hours, and still lose.  If you have more games to play later on in an event, you may be more rested.

    I'm not sure if losing in 10 moves is better than losing in four hours. Atleast you can say that you tried your very best to win the game, or that your opponent outplayed you in all phases of the game. You learn almost nothing from the game if you lose in less than 20 moves, because you end up losing with a blunder you probably shouldn't make.
