Traps, Tricks & Mistakes: Late Blunder

Blunder in the endgame is always painful. Especially after being playing for hours a tough game.

If not, see what happened to Russian GM Ian Nepomniachtchi in his game against Vishwanathan Anand in the first round of the “7th Sinquefield Cup 2019”.

The following position arose after more than five hours when Anand played his move 76…Kg5

The evaluation of the position is equal as long as White plays the right move. But Nepomniachtchi played carelessly and lost the whole point.

Again Bobby Fischer’s quote is fully up-to-date: “Chess demands total concentration”.
