Starting with 13...e6, Black agreed with Stockfish every time, but I don't think Black was cheating because the moves were forced or easy. Considering Black's unusual and weak play around move 7, it feels like a case where one side's initiative carried the other along — like the weakened boxer holding himself up by slumping against the opponent.

Even so, 17 straight moves that Stockfish agrees with is suspicious if not impressive.
