Default Games from the US Senior Championship

I will use as an example the problem of computer cheating a game I
played last weekend at the US Senior Championship against USCF Rated
Master David Gertler.

[Event "US Senior Championship"]
[Site "Tarrytown New York USA"]
[Date "2013.05.31"]
[Round "03"]
[White "Sloan, Sam"]
[Black "Gertler, David"]
[Result "0-1"]
[ECO "A00"]
[WhiteElo "1909"]
[BlackElo "2259"]

1.g4 d5 2.Bg2 c6 3.h3 e5 4.d3 Bd6 5.Nc3 Ne7 6.e4 Bb4 7.Bd2 d4 8.Nce2
Bxd2+ 9.Qxd2 Ng6 10.f4 exf4 11.Nf3 Nh4 12.Nexd4 c5 13.Nb3 c4 14.Nbd4
cxd3 15.cxd3 O-O 16.O-O-O Be6 17.Kb1 Nxg2 18.Qxg2 Qb6 19.Qd2 Na6
20.Qxf4 Bxa2+ 21.Kxa2 Nb4+ 22.Kb1 Qa6 23.Nc2 Qa2+ 24.Kc1 Rac8 25.Nfe1
Rc6 26.Kd2 Qxb2 27.Rc1 Rfc8 28.Ke2 Nxc2 29.Nxc2 Rxc2+ 30.Kf3 Rxc1
31.Rxc1 Qxc1 0-1

In this game I played the winning move 1.g4 so I got a good game and
soon won a pawn.

Gertler realized that he was in trouble and that if he played
routinely he was lost so instead he played a speculative sacrifice of
a bishop, which he admitted that he had not been able to analyze
thoroughly.

I had to take the bishop or otherwise be lost. Now the question was
how to defend.

Had I been a computer cheater, I could have run to the toilet, pull
out my pocket Fritz and it would have told me that the move 23. Rh2
holds the piece, defends against all mates and wins the game.

However, as a human, I could never have been able to see that 23. Rh2
is a good defense. It looks like all Gertler has to do is put one of
his rooks on c8, preventing the escape of the king, and then move in
with his queen and knight to administer checkmate.

It looks like an easy mate but in fact there is no mate there. The
attack fizzles and White wins.

My point is that the cheater does not need to have Fritz, Rybka or
Houdini tell him every move. In this case all he would have needed was
just one move, 23. Rh2 to win. Many games are like that, where just
one mistake or one good move decides the game.
