Harry, people sometimes do funny things when the red curtain comes down. Funny people do even funnier things ... I've seen whole nations do funny things when blinded by frustration and anger ... it's a funny old world ...
I suspect Mark was trying to show that he could actually play and wasn't a pretender, ie. "I might not be able to read but I can play okay". I doubt he wouldn't have expected his foes from the other thread to comment and rag his playing out because they hardly ever comment in the Your Playing section, and those who are regulars there are usually highly supportive.
That's my take on it ...
