Endgame Blunder

Oct 2, 2009, 7:18 AM |

This was a position that Black had strived for after a long and hard fought battle. White had sacrificed a piece for two pawns and quality, but after a queen exchange Black got the upper hand and was only going to cash in. In this position White had like 30 seconds left on his clock and Black some minutes. When White promoted I took the queen in my right hand and moved with my left hand also picking up the pawn in my right hand. Suddenly noticing the audience that had gathered simultaneously joggling the white pieces I made a really bad blunder with my left hand. Conclusion: Never use your untrained hand in Zeitnot.
















This was the game up til when both players were short of time and no record was made.
