this one brings up an old discussion back "he who has the most mistakes, loses" is that really true? what about this game?

same amount of mistakes, but I have 2 blunders vs. 1 (one) but my overall accuracy and estimated rating is higher.. And I checkmated him.

hows that even possible

I deeply understand you master gold gold lessons

Because he had only 1 blunder, but 3 misses, and 1 inaccuracy too, but you didn't have any inaccuracy or miss. And, sometimes a blunder is when you hung a pawn, and sometimes a blunder is when you hung a queen. It is not the same!

And, now I did run a game review on your game, and you did have 10 best moves, and your opponent did have only 2 best moves. So, It is completely understandable that your accuracy was higher than his.

he also has 2 great moves but i have none

a better explanation might be: I made more blunders but opponent couldn't use them against me.

those 2/3 misses must be my blunders

in the same way: he has 1 blunder but I have no miss, so that means I caught it, I guess.

No one has ever said that about chess. The well-known quote is "he who makes the 2nd to last mistake wins." In other words, only the last mistake matters.

Those who punishes the most mistakes (usually win )

I'm trying to understand how someone with a 1579 rating gets mated in that manner and also gives up a rook and a knight in the process for seemingly no reason.

To answer your question everyone plays terrible chess occasionally

I played like an 800 before (not according to stockfish but it looked like 800 elo game ) funny enough I still won the game

If you panic early on you can get really bad tunnel vision

sometimes you get lucky even when you blunder. Definitely more common in blitz
