Even the Best Can Lose It

Here’s Vladimir kramnik, the best chess player in the world. He’s playing a match against one of those awesome chess computers, and he’s doing okay, and has a forced draw, and then, in what has to be one of the great blunders of all time, he misses a simple mate-in-one and loses.

This is like Michael Jordan missing a dunk. It just doesn’t happen.

I feel much better, somehow, having seen this.
