 It's certainly a rarity for a former world chess champion to lose a chess game after just 12 moves, but that is exactly what happened to Anatoly Karpov in his game against Larry Christiansen in the Wijk aan Zee tournament of 1993. What is it that made Karpov blunder? Moreover, what other blind spots might we, as chess players, be susceptible to during a game?
