    In a game I am currently playing I got this statement made by a player of a normal rating of 2000 plus.

    "21 White if you found the last moves without a computer you must be a grandmaster and well trained!, I'l have this game analyzed, as I suspect you use computers to think 4 you. "

    Sometimes people project their issues onto other people.

    While I can't commit on the move you mentioned because the game is still in progress, I can tell you that many players at RHP log in after they've had a few drinks. So it's possible that the guy hated himself the next day for saying anything.

    Seeing its in progress I shouldn't really comment but without giving anything away I cannot see anything in the last few moves 15-22 that would not have been played by many 1500-1700 players.

    Why does your opponent think they are of GM standard?.............

    I agree, no obvious program use in that game.

    I'm certainly guilty of that one myself :-(
    I've scrapped the internet @ home just to make sure it never happens again.
    Still drinking like a fish tho...

    Yes but you should not have replaced the computer table with a cocktail cabinet! only joking I too am currently trying to cut down my drinking. I also have typed the odd comment after a few too many that you regret the next day

    LOL - ya - good point. Another stupid thing I do after a few too many is play through games from books on the board, Big long annotated games, and I realise (way into the game) that something's amiss :-/ Hates that too...

    I have looked at your games and come to the conclusion that you are clearly using a very poor engine. What else explains 18. ... Kd7 in Game 2285087 or 7. NXf7 in Game 2285082?

    here i was thinking im the only one who has played games drunk.. never online, as i usually play during work hours, but OTB at the park here, ive played more than a few drunk.. here in brasil, the chess crowd at the park plays every once in a while where when you TAKE a piece you take a shot, usually "cana", aguardiente/ firewater is what you might know it as.. sugarcane alcohol..
