F020: Never Ignore Noël
Noël was fascinated by the Find The Blunder exercise and wanted to try his hand. This is the result. A perfect exercise for those new to isolated visualization training!
Noël’s work on Next Level Chess is fantastic, and I highly recommend his weekly newsletter.
Find the Blunder: Read through the game below. Somewhere amongst the moves, one player will make a blunder that would swing the game heavily in their opponent’s favor. Their opponent will not punish them for it. Your job is to identify which move was a blunder and what move should have been played to punish it.
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 Nge7 4. Nc3 g6 5. d4 exd4 6. 0-0 Bg7 7. Nd5 0-0 *
