WTF!! Is this for real? The 'Tumbleweed' reborn? I think the game score isn't accurate but still, lol, your opponent must have had a lot of hate losing to that junk!

I think there is some problem with the score, eg Qf1 twice doesn't make sense. Notice it was in the last round when Kerry had nothing to lose.

Had a look on Ozbase and it appeared to be correct....

I only just noticed this thread ...

Yes, I did play this rubbish in a tournament game - probably the worst thing I've done in my chess 'career', particularly playing such rubbish in an Australian Championship.
I apologised to Scott after the game ... the game score as shown only looks accurate to about move 34 or thereabouts.
As for why I played it, it was just one of those tournaments - the last round of a forgettable tournament for me ... but I should not have gone that far with venting my frustration.
