Post your most embarrassing games here

  • #21

    My most embarrassing game that I can recall is my one agaisnt MSC157. I don't recall the full game but we followed the famous Anand Kasparov blitz match until I was up about 4 pawns.

    We drew.

     

    Now, I can't resist posting one of the most embarrassing games my friend played:

    I've got several, but one in recent memory was when I played in a tournament last year. I was 3 pawns up on an expert when I hit the 5 minute mark and I managed to lose! Embarassed

    Another 'instructive' gem from my youth that told on my lack of endgame knowledge:

     I resigned here, but white actually blundered. 1...Kc8! leads to a draw

    You guys have nothing on me.

    This is a real 30|0 game I played embarrassingly recently.

    Unfortunately I played it more than a month ago, so I don't have the PGN in my archives.

    I believe I can be a prolific contributor to this thread...

    Missing a clear advantage or even mate early in the game is a very common motif in my game history. Here's a game I played yesterday (15|10 time controls):

    I have many more entertaining (and frustrating) games.

    Another just in.

    I like to experiment with unusual openings.  But unusual openings are unusual for a reason -- mainly because they're somewhat unsound.  In this case, my attempt to play the black side of the "Balogh Gambit" (1.e4 d6 2.d4 f5) went terribly wrong.  My opponent and I both followed "theory" (an old article from ChessCafe.com) for the first 4 moves.  Clearly my 5th move was not good enough, since I failed to prevent white's strong move 6.Ng5.  Being the exchange and a pawn down against a solid player, and far behind in development, I so no reason to continue the game.  On the bright side, my king did enjoy a nice walk ...

    A lesson on how to checkmate yourself.

    5 mins blitz.

    My endgame skills have improved markedly from just two months ago. This game shows just how bad I was.

  • #33

    Once in a while, I'll play a game that makes me wonder about whether my endgame has improved at all. Still manage to throw away victories like a retard. 15|10 time control.
