I have never seen him win anything, except due to (CB) GUI lag and other technicalities and he refused to play in non buggy environments ;-)
He could have easily played e.g. at Lichess...

The question should be re-worded: "is he able to DRAW these new generation chess engines?"

The question should be general for humans and if humans can draw.

I would like to see some open challange for human like the grandmaster challange of Rebel many years ago when this time the human pay 100$ and get 10000$ in case of a draw(or a win) when the human get the white pieces so humans who believe that they can draw with white with probability of more than 1% may try.

He was not able to draw some very old chess engines. It just depended on how well it was programmed to avoid his anti-computer tactics. I remember ChessTiger just murdered him, and he was never able to draw this engine. I believe the NN understand about locked positions.

The answer is simple, if you don't see them it is because he can't beat or draw them! :D

Anyone paying attention knows that the guy got tired of this place.

He'd post some flowery title like...

"GRANDFATHER AGAINST 64 CORE MONSTER OF DOOM DEFENDS HUMANKIND!"

...then embed a stonewall setup where he shuffled for 300 moves and flagged someone on PlayChess...

...to the instant flaming of the people here, who were delighted to be shooting holes in all of his posts.

Personally, I think it is skillful the way he setup the stonewalls, but also a bit lame.

Anything that is not chess, but pretends to be, is lame to me.

Anyway, of course, he left, because he probably felt like his brilliance was unappreciated.

A man's ego can only bear so much.
