Because she eats a lot of fried chicken, you see. That's why her fingers are slippery. From the grease ... I think. }

Did you ever get the pawn back? If so, don't forget to name the manoeuvre the Thesus Gambit.

If not, please let the above be my one & only contribution to the German vocabulary! :-roll😁:-sing}:-co

I also find it interesting how often we spot our blunder, or our better move, just after confirming the (substandard) move.

Is there a Latin or German/Yiddish term for that? 'Finger before brain', maybe! 😊

Surely it must translate something like " ... that sinking of the heart and/or stomach feeling ... " 🀣

Other painful mistakes: actually rejecting a candidate move during your think time, and then playing it anyway; or playing the second or subsequent move of a thought-out sequence instead of the first, spoiling the whole combination; and of course overlooking the opponent's obvious zwischenzug.
