Blunders in chess Kramnik wasn't the first
01.12.2006 Still mystified by Vladimir Kramnik's blunder in game two of his match against Deep Fritz? After our attempts at an explanation of this extraordinary blackout we return to the subject (with apologies to Vladimir) with opinions by our readers and with a collection of drastic blunders by other world champions and top players. Take comfort.
On move 33, Kramnik captured on c1, but that move contains a fatal error. Black's queenside pawns would still give him chances. Instead, Kramnik played the move 34...Qe3, having overlooked the mate in one to great pleasure of Fritz operators. It was one of the most unbelievable blunders ever seen at that level of chess and the first one in Kramnik's career.
