Playing grandmasters can be intimidating, especially when you are rated far below the GM. The GM will likely have superior tactical ability, better positional understanding, a broader and deeper opening repetoire, superior endgame skills and in general will be a much better chess player than yourself. However, you must remember that you have one advantage: the GM is expecting an easy win and hence will be off his guard, and you can use this to your advantage. I will show you how to use this advantage to beat grandmasters with the following game:
I have beaten numerous grandmasters using this technique. I hope this helps you when you are faced against any grandmasters in the future.
I have beaten numerous grandmasters using this technique.

I envy you. You live in a fantasy land. Don't wake up, because the truth bites.
Not true, I think you beat grandmasters of losing.
magnificent, stupid GM didn't see it coming. Will this work against top chess programs as well? I assume so, it is very subtle.
That is offensive to the retards! They aren't this stupid. . .
