    The below game is almost the holy grail of missing a mate in one and being mated next move. Actually it was a mate in two missed. Others have noted Zenic is inconsistent probably due to the number of games played!

    Move 27 can anyone see what black missed. He played Qe7 in this position.

    Why not play a lower number of games so that you can see tactics like these and then if idle play some casual blitz/rapid on the side? Playing 700+ games simultaneously means you are churning out RHP Blitz performance in each game.
