What about these blunder on moves 26 and 27 by White?

Blunders usually refer to moves that (should) lose or give away a win, not missing moves that would win and playing something else that only draws.

In this game you might describe Black's moves 25 and 26 as blunders, although move 25 in particular is more likely to just be described as a bad move. White missing Qh8+ twice would not be called a blunder.

Its a pretty big oversight for someone of AAA's calibre arguably.

Thanks.
What does it mean if an advantage is inappropriate"to" your position?

What does "pervasive prevention" mean?
