Everyone has done it - dropped a 'Chess Turkey' during a tournament, or been the recipient of a 'Chess Turkey'.
A Chess Turkey is a game where you or your opponent played terrible and got blown off the board handily, usually in under 20 moves.
Do you have a chess Turkey you want to share?
Post the pgn here so everyone can enjoy your 'Chess Turkey' for Thanksgiving Day! Be SURE it is properly formatted so others can simply cut and paste it into their chess readers and enjoy!
I'll start it off with a classic from my library of 'Chess Turkeys'. The names are changed to protect the guilty and the innocent alike:
