    I think you might be the first first person to notice that typo - certainly the first person to bring it to my attention.

    Clean up please mods - thank you in advance.
    There is no cure for leftism. Its infestation of the host mostly diminishes with age except in the most rabid of specimens.

    Incidentally I never have any idea whether the past form of sac is sac'd, saced (which looks like the c should be soft), sacced or sacked.

    Surprised I can only find one prior example of "blundersac" on the net, and that at best dubiously in English anyway. I've used the term for some time - usually denoting a blunder that comes with compensation for the material (the compensation may or may not have been the point in the first place).

    This is the blundersac in question:

    FEN Viewer


    Black to play is temporarily a piece down but has an unpleasant choice between ...Qxf6 Nxd5 going a pawn down, ...gxf6 with a very bad position, and ...Bxf3 Bxh7+ going a pawn down. Instead he plays 13...Bxh2+?? which would actually make matters worse if white saw 14.Nxh2 and black would be two pieces down. However I only saw 14.Kxh2 and furthermore after 14...Qxf6 I immediately counter-blundered with 15.Nxd5?? Qd6+.

    ^ I hate it in these symmetrical type structures when you come out of a long yawn and realise you somehow lost a piece.
