    Pretty certain that when your king makes it to the enemy's back rank, your king gets promoted to Emperor.

The position was just too complicated and I don't think even super GMs would find all the correct moves. Heck, even the computer didn't evaluate one position correctly.

    I wish I had the full game (this was over-the-board almost 10 years ago), but I once played a game in which I was completely winning 20 moves in, got impatient and blundered every piece except my Queen and a couple pawns (I was -20ish on material), but somehow I managed to start checking my opponent with my Queen again while avoiding threats from both his Queens and his Rook. My opponent saw no problem with getting checked because he was walking his King down to take my pawn on a4 anyway, and I won with the pawn on a4, the enemy King on a5 and my Queen on b5.

    The dumbest game of chess I've ever played was some time in early may this year, I was playing white and got my king out in my first three moves and proceeded to do nothing but move my king closer and closer to my opponents side and was able to pull a kings mate. I know that it isn't a legal move but the fact I was able to get my king onto the other side of the board without using any other pieces to defend it, it felt like it was a deserved kings mate for me to do to my opponent

    Nonetheless, it's surely one of the most exciting games for intermediate players like me. May be Advanced players will find it irritating but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

      @Stephen C. You are kind of generalizing, GM's often play at 90+ accuracy, I agree but this depends on a lot of stuff. It's a difference if they play something like the Ruy Lopez (a very calm and chill opening) or the Traxler (a very aggressive and complicated opening). The Engine is an absolute beast at Tactics and will find ALL the tactics in your game and surprise surprise even GM's blunder. Though not that often against other GM's and even less against lower rated opponents but in an opening like the Traxler with a lot of potential to blunder even GM's will when playing another GM because there are too many possibilities. If you want an example for just how complicated the Traxler is look at Eric Rosen's games. Those were Rapid games Tbf and he's still an IM but nonetheless it's "impressive" how many mistakes and blunder he made.

      @Crampe Cerebrale some GM's do play that and I'm not saying that they always play it, it was just an example... The main line, just like Levy said is Ng5 d5 exd5 Na5 and probably Qf3 though there are many moves like Be4 Bd3 etc. Especially in Blitz games I can and have very well see/n GM's play it. In a FIDE rated game though they literally never play it, you are right.

      @Chess Crush 90+ accuracy is not hard for a GM. Watch a GM play on stream, often they play at high 90s even in shorter format games. You don't have to know 30 moves of theory to play at 90+. That said, GMs can and do remember many 20-30 move lines.

It'd be totally awesome to have know what the players' heart rates were on each move (Just when you though they've tracked every fact about a game . . . this one would be so fun to know). I also love how I'd never heard of either of these players. Keep up the awesome work Gotham!

    I play against myself for practice, and my games are a lot like the one in this video while I'm... you know... "inhaling something smokey," probably because I'm not a very good player yet. It makes practice a little more fun, but chaotic since I can forget which side I just played 😅

    This is the kind of brilliancy you achieve only once in life. I do hope that both players have this game framed on their front door. It might not have been perfect play from either side, but it is absolutely hilarious. And unironically, this is the sort of position only a really good player can navigate. Even the engine is confused. So despite White blundering checkmate multiple times and Black missing it every time, this does speak to some really solid ability.
