Ms. Becky,

If you tell me the name of Champion (randomly !) - I'll tell you where and what he/she missed ! I don't beleive any champion stayed away of blunders per their entire career :cry:

sorry for off-topic, but it gets smile on my face :lol:

In the book SIXTH, while annotating one game, I had included a collection of famous (and less known) most horrible stupid blunders, happened on the most serious occasion. Mr. Fortman also kindly donated to my book some good examples of fine blunders.

So ... I can extend your question:

tell me the name of Champion, who missed 3 for 1 in the World Championship Match ?

===========================================================================

Ms. Becky, I know the answer on your question, but give people a chance :lol: I think I had several missing and blunders in PA and OH State ty's. Should this be considered as serious occasion ? :idea:


Regards,

Alex

In this case you must be more specific in your original question. I can meet all criterias in your question to provide an answer in modern years :lol: If you want me to post my version of answer - I can do this.

Well, an unfortunate answer is, that even after 100 years we don't do any better than our predecessors :roll: and missing one for two shots are still active and continue to be occured in nowdays and even in the 21st century !

In my 3 moves World Championship Match 2002 with Elbert Lowder, in game #24 he failed into one for two at the eariler stage of game: 12-16 21-17 9-13 24-19 8-12 22-18 ???

Elbert Lowder was 2 times USA GAYP National Champion, and that means - your criterias met successfully !

Regards,

Alex
