Lamford in his 1983 book gives 20.Ke2 indeed: Ne7 21.Qd3 Qd5 22.h4 Rd7 23.Rad1 Rhd8 24.Qb3 Qe4 with equality.
He does not commend 19.Bxe4 though.

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

The moves have probably been reproduced incorrectly, it's happened to me a couple of times i the last few years, and 33 years ago it was probably even more common with no personal computers and chess programs...

White probably played 20.Ke2 and not 20.Qe2??

World Chess Record in blunders

Yesterday I played one of my favourited surpise weapons against a club player, the Albin-CounterGambit. I play black. The game went

1.d4 d5
2.c4 e5
3.dxe5 d4
4.Nf3 Nc6
5.Nbd2 Bg4
6.a3 Qe7
7.h3 Bh5
8.g4 Bg6
9.Bg2 O-O-O
Up to here the game followed an earlier game (that I wasn't aware of between Kaminsky and Mosionzhik)
Now I continued 10..Nxe5 (instead of 10..h5 as in the mentioned game)
11.Qa4?! Nd3+
12.Kf1 Nxf2!!
13.Kxf2 Qe3+
14.Kf1! d3?! (14..Qc3 was better)
15.Qd1?? and after that blunder there is no need to mention the continuation.

Anyway, after realising that 8.g4 was theoretical move I was curious to check the game and I found this comedy, which must be the World Chess Record for blunders in a official game with 2200+ opponents:
white: Kaminsky, Oleg (2333 according to FIDE)
black: Mosionzhik, Ilia (2228 according to FIDE)
year: 1971

11.g4 Nxe5
12.Nxe5 Qxe5
13.Nf3 Qe6
14.Bf4 Bd6 (Fritz 8 theory stops here)
15.Bxd6 Rxd6
16.c5 Rd8
17.Nxd4 Qe5
18.e3 Be4 Now take a deep threat cause we start:
19.Bxe4? Qxe4
20.Qe2?? Ne7?
21.Qd3?? Qd5?
22.h4?? Rd7?
23.Rd1?? Rhd8?
24.Qb3?? Qe4?
and at last

Does anyone know the story of this game?
