    Black is a 17 or 18 year old GM yet he walked into this; they are awarding those titles to almost anyone nowadays 😛

    I'm not very good at these things, but I think Rxh7 is a win.

    If Kramnik can get mated in one, anything's possible.

    Rxh7 is the right move here!

    Yes what if black upsets the board instead of playing Kxh7 ?

    Or the mock heart attack?

    Or "Look behind you!"

    Black still has many good replies to Rxh7 ... unfortunately none of them are legal chess moves.
