BLUNDERING PIECES NOT THE BIGGEST BLUNDER – (Ghost scenario and missing pieces)

avatar

When you blunder a piece away it is immediately notice by both players or anyone watching. There is another type of blunder that not as obvious as a piece blunder. It's not as obvious because there are several reasons or more behind it. Many of my blunders or when I simply don't see a piece or I see a false scenario that I think is great but its obvious not.

Below are two of my recent tournament games that demonstrate both these type of blunders. The first hard fought game below I thought there were two options for immediate checkmate in the end game but there were only one. I didn't see my opponent queen even though it was on the board in plain site. This blunder fall under the category of missing pieces and ghost scenario. I am not sure how these pieces go missing but it happens a lot.

For these types of blunders practicing with @schamangerbert or coaching from @eniolw can't help me. That OK because I will put an end to all the blunders; piece blunders, ghost scenarios and missing pieces soon. Note: the missing pieces are mostly responsible for the ghost scenario.

Game#1: @rodrook vs @samostically

Game#2: @rodrook vs @rafaelaquino
In my second game below I had a strategy to get a forced checkmate but I didn't see the pawn between my queen and my rook. I want to capture my opponent KBP and check his King, of course this was a ghost scenario. So imagine my surprise when I discovered that I couldn't capture the king bishop pawn and check the king because my queen was not protected by my rook. A pawn appeared out of nowhere between my rook and queen, this was a real ghost scenario.


Rodrook think he can capture his opponent KBP and checkmate him.

BUT IT IS A GHOST SCENARIO

I really had a big laugh reading your post, so funny and entertaining.

I just don't think it's fair for the pieces to be hiding

I actually complained about my terrible play, how I got to that position and I already hit the mouse thinking you would find the right move.

PS : There also another simple winning move beside Bh6! Can you find it?

Q x R could lead to a piece advantage and a win.

It's really common and it happens several times for all of us, in my language we say something like "oh I saw a ghost" but it is because we are missing the calculation process so we got to develop this skill by solving many puzzles, strength your visualization on the board is the way to get better, following a chess game with blindfold can help you a lot as well

Good post, RodRook. Thanks for the mention, too! Hopefully I will bring more coaching soon. I just need some time (BTW, you should have included my blunder too :P)
