Smirnov vs. Zworestine

 "15 241 383 936" - Anton Smirnov calculates the answer to 123456^2 in his head (I had to use a calculator).

This year's Christmas present to our readers from Figjam is the 2010 Sydney Interclub game between then 9-year-old Anton Smirnov and our former hero Charlsen. Despite making a good start with his first move, it seems the Zworebeast has forgotten his preparation by move 3. Five questionable moves in a row change the position from (-0.11) to (13.77), and mate will follow on just move 23.
