  LIFE Master AJ: Someone should research this guy's history ... when did he start cheating?

Does THIS game match any chess engine ... of that period?

Aug-06-13  Jim Bartle: I don't know. But Ribli has a reputation as an extremely conservative player (as he admits), so a draw with a lower-ranked player isn't such a surprise.

Some of Kotainy's games do look very suspicious, though.

  LIFE Master AJ: agreed

I forget which one it was, one I was looking at earlier seemed to be a perfect match to TOGA ... (an earlier engine, I don't see it used much today).

  LIFE Master AJ: The player, Kazbek Akbaev, has one of the worst records of any master I have ever seen.

  LIFE Master AJ: (But he is not an ENGINE cheater, he may have just purchased his title in a FAKE/RIGGED/PRE-FAB/ARTIFICIAL event.)
Aug-07-13  MarkFinan: Oh give up now AJ. Just about every game page i visit nowadays you're already there letting your OTT suspicious mind work overtime.. I don't think he'd had the DVD player installed in his head by this time LOL. Seriously i came here to look through his game for signs of cheating and you're already here accusing him. You're obssessed with cheating, everytime you lose online you accuse the victor of using an engine, when are you going to realize you're just a lousy human being and nobody likes you for a reason?
Aug-07-13  MarkFinan: AJ.. I've got that Toga engine in one of those chess apps i download, find which game that matches everymove and post it??
Aug-07-13  whiteshark: The final move <29.Rxa7> is obviously brain-generated as every maschine would have played <29.R7e4!> maintaining the good position.

  LIFE Master AJ: This game looks slightly suspicious, however, I have not matched it to any specific engine.

I would be curious to know if anyone has matched this game to any engine.

115% match with Genius 2.
