Like most chessplayers, sometimes I screw up badly in the opening. In the game that follows, I was playing at the NY Open in front of my friends and colleagues, and was embarrassed to fall into a simpe opening trap. I was too shocked to resign, so I just kept playing, and somehow managed to equalize after some major sacrifices, and eventually even won the game.

 The game is included in my Development of a Chess MAster, where I show many of my stupidest and most instuctive mistakes and then a few wins over GMS, proving that no matter how badly you play on some occasions, on others it is still possible to play well.
