    ...was my opponent's comment after the clock ran out on this rather unrefined blitz game. I dunno, whatever happened to civility and a disingenuous "gg"?

    Yeah, it really took an engine to get that far, eh.

    Too many dark squared weaknesses.

    You played 33....Rxg4 here


    Typical blitz error. You intended after 34 Bxg4 Qg1+ winning the Bishop.
    I'm sure no engine would miss Bxg4 is a CHECK! (which is what you missed.)

    Some people need any excuse they can find for why they lose, and engine use accusations are simply a manifestation of that need.

    I just wish there was a way to know about people like this ahead of time, so they could be avoided.

    I always switch messages off.
    Last night Lady Luck sat in my lap and I could do no wrong, I got lost
    positions and chisled my way out winning every game.
    I wonder what kind of messages I would have got.
