When Grandmasters Blunder
Chess can be a very cruel game! A momentary loss of concentration or distraction can cause you to lose immediately. We call this a blunder. Even World Champions are not exempt from this failing.
Below I give three examples from the very strong French team championship, known as the Top-12, where each game is decided in just one move with a horrible blunder. Enjoy!
