How do you go from +1 to -25 in only one move? You play your nemesis! GM Finegold shows off three interesting blunders, the last of which he goes down in flames against GM Shabalov, who always seems to have Ben's number. But in the first two games, a younger Finegold finds two creative ways to extract a win from a lost position. In the first, he gives his opponent a queen and the move and still wins! In the second, he offers the lady again! Who needs queens when you're 2500?
