 Just another reminder that anyone can play badly
Opponent was ~300 points higher rated, we both missed some things in the opening and then I just started pressing in the middlegame and he cracked.

Replayer is broken, white's 27'th move is obviously N1e2, the Knight on g3 is pinned...

Sometimes there are shock results, the stronger player falls into an opening trap or simply makes a huge blunder. This was not that type of game. Good players will still on average make more good moves than the opponent they are much higher rated than. White played on average per move worse. The rating diference of 300 can only be a reflection on how bad is the rating sytem being used.

Pobble, why have you always got to be so negative? The 300 elo difference is a reflection on past results. Nothing more, nothing less. Past results are the best indicators of a player's strength that we have.

Sarciness, obviously if that is your opinion, your welcome to it.
