It's R Steel vs NN, 1886 with reversed colours and an extra move 3.g3. (Incidentally, Steel-NN isn't a real game either, but analysis of another Steel game.)

Jun-28-09  ToTheDeath: <SwitchingQuylthulg:> thanks!
Apr-07-11  sevenseaman: What jugglery! A pure mate!

This needs decoding. Any video analysis of the game?
