Here is an early game from Mirke, back when he was missing mate in one against players with ratings barely over 1000: Game 2794948.
Then suddenly he worked out how to play and turns out games like this little beauty: Game 3308474.
As my friend DragonFire always tells me when I have have yet another rant about engin ...[text shortened]... and can blunder, but the way Mirke was improving he would have been World Champion by Christmas!
There are mistakes and there are mistakes
. Good players blunder, even miss mates in 1, but they do not play a whole game like a patzer against a 1000 player.
In the first game the opening moves were not consistent at all with a competent player and the standard of play was dire. He didn't make an isolated mistake but displayed a total lack of chess knowledge.
The rate of improvement shown is possible over a number of years from a youngster who had just learnt the moves when he started and who has an aptitude and learns quickly but such a player would soon be a GM. Of course the rate of improvement would be a progressive one that would be very possible for the mods to track.
This seems to be his last loss Game 2910879
before that sustained rise and it doesn't point to there being a superior ability in store.
