How to beat a Grandmaster Video

Hello dear chess lovers!

Some people have asked how it was possible to checkmate an International Master, with the black pieces, in 20 moves (see my YouTube video with my win against Sophie Milliet in Corsica). Milliet is rated 2407 ELO FIDE.

Well last week, I managed to beat seasoned Grandmaster Alexey Korotylev, rated 2596 ELO FIDE, in a mere 19 moves, playing black. Click on the 4-minute video to see this game. It's quite a nice game with a beautiful ending combination. Enjoy!
