Biggest Blunder in Chess History - Karpov vs Bareev - Linares (1994)

I forgot to turn off my Facebook, so there are a couple of message sounds in the video. Sorry about that :) Anatoly Karpov vs Evgeny Bareev Linares (1994), Linares ESP, rd 2, Feb-??

Rd8# The 12th Annual Linares Super Tournament held from February 23rd to March 14th, 1994 was the first Category XVIII event ever held. Fourteen of the world's best players, including both World Champions, competed in a round robin format. The participants were (in order of Elo): Garry Kasparov (2805), Anatoli Karpov (2740), Alexey Shirov (2715), Vishwanathan Anand (2715), Vladimir Kramnik (2710), Vassily Ivanchuk (2710), Gata Kamsky (2695), Boris Gelfand (2685), Evgeny Bareev (2685), Alexander Beliavsky (2650), Veselin Topalov (2640), Judit Polgar (2630), Joel Lautier (2625), and Miguel Illescas-Cordoba (2590). When asked about the strength of the tournament, Kasparov famously stated that the winner could consider himself the world champion of tournament chess. Ironically, it was to be Karpov, his longtime rival, who would be the man of destiny, culminating in the greatest single tournament performance of all time! Karpov won the whole ball of wax, undefeated with an astonishing 11/13!!! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you realllly enjoy my content, you're welcome to support me and my channel with a small donation via PayPal.

Talking Chess Hustler vs. A Dubious Chess Opening

NYC Chess Hustling 7 - The return of the winter games! 1. f3 and 2.Kf2 is debatably the worst chess opening to possibly play... can the player still manage to beat the hustler even with this disadvantage? Watch the full NYC Chess hustling playlist: If you would like to attempt some really difficult chess puzzles, make sure to check this out: Feel free to Challenge Chess Twins online: Profile Profile: Twitch Link: Edit: After the game, the player gave the chess hustler 10 dollars for his time. This game was just a casual game filmed just for fun, the purpose of this video is to entertain and to promote chess. The player does say a couple of words to the hustler, except the mic doesn't pick it up. Often, hustlers will try to talk to you during the middle of a game, however, it does break your focus and it distracts you. I believe that this is the reason why the player isn't responding to some of the questions. After the game, the player did answer the questions, I didn't record it though.

ELO ratings from the FIDE website (2000-2016)

I used cubic interpolation between data points when necessary (EDO and ELO) and applied a 6-month blur to the CMR data to make the lines smoother and easier to follow.
