The Worst Move On The Board VI
Tringov v Gheorghiu, Bulgaria v Romania 1971, the position featured in our What Happened Next? series on Tuesday and Wednesday. Tringov must have been nine moves short of the time control then in force - surely he can't have been in time-trouble? Not in a game he believed was fixed for him to win.
Either way the move he found a move was even worse than 48.Kc1, and indeed worse than any other move he could have played. But at the same time, a move of sufficient quality to rate with any other in our series. Well done.
