  perfidious: One might rather take this game to be a typical first-round mismatch in an open in the good old days, instead of a battle between 2700+ players.

Navara is unpredictable due to his unique brain-chemistry. When his brain is firing, he can be unbelievably brilliant. But his level of play can suddenly collapse, sometimes even during the course a of a game.

Think of him as being a highly functional and complex individual from somewhere on the autistic spectrum -- with all the complexities of medicinal cocktails his doctors have him on. At his best, Navara can defeat anyone; but he can also lose to anyone when his mind suddenly faces some kind of a crisis.
