Well, at least it wasn't an impossible position as we too often see when a chessboard is shown on TV.

I knew a player in college who could think like that.  Utterly brilliant.  But he could only do it high on grass and only a part of the board at a time.  You just had to figure out where he wasn't focussing and play there.

In the spot he was focussed, he was unbeatable.
