If this was true, it would be big news.

Define "big news," Conrad.

Dec-10-14  Conrad93: Was he drunk or in a coma? How does a GM play that badly?
Dec-10-14  Conrad93: It's not as if white was playing that well.
Dec-10-14  Conrad93: I'm not going to accuse anybody, but almost all of white's moves were top engine choices.

You just did, sport.

Dec-10-14  IFNB: Black was OK until he castled into a well-spotted tactic. It happens.
Dec-10-14  HeMateMe: Lettuce have a game.
Dec-11-14  Conrad93: <You just did, sport.>

Not really. I'm just pointing out that his accuracy is suspicious.

Something like 20 moves all top engine choices, and add to the fact he only had 15 minutes to think.

The kid was playing at a GM level.

Hardly. Every move through white's eighth is straight book, and everything after that until white hit the tactic on move 14 following black's blunder is very much natural and common-sense. And even the tactic isn't that hard to spot.

You should quit posting here, Conrad. Seriously.

Dec-14-14  Conrad93: It wasn't book at the very end, nor in the middle game when black blundered.

White made no flaws, which is suspicious for a mere 1500+ playing against a GM.

I'm sure he played fairly, but chances are he had the assistance of an engine.

Dec-14-14  Conrad93: Luckily for the guy we will never know.
Dec-14-14  Conrad93: Also how would a mere 1500+ know that much opening theory?
Dec-23-14  ketchuplover: New In Chess has released his book titled "The Chess Manual of Avoidable Mistakes"

Happy Holidays to all
