  • #zwischenzug: how to lose a won chess game (and hate yourself) | reallyquitetired
    my concentration was broken by having to mess about with the clocks and i became far more focussed on the threat i was about to create on f2 than the fact that the key reason to play Qc5 was to cover c8 allowing Bc8 in reply to Qb8 when we resumed my opponent played the predictable last throw of the dice Qe5 but for some reason that i simply cannot explain it suddenly popped into my head that Qxb6 left me on the same attacking diagonal as Qc5 and given that it captures the last of the sorry queenside pawns it would no doubt force the resignation i had been waiting for i swiped off his pawn quickly and confidently of course if you ve followed the game this far then you know enough to know that i just threw away a game that i was only one or two moves away from winning convincingly when my opponent unblinkingly played Qb8 effectively mate my body jerked and i felt immediately sick for those of you who don t play chess but have for some reason read on this far what i just did is only a small step down from the chess version of Kei Kamara s embarrasing miss kick fall over and handle the ball for LA Galaxy earlier this year or Lindsay Jacobellis infamous last and unnecessary trick in the olympic snowboard cross final in 2006 i d concentrated hard for an hour and half and finally had the game absolutely at my mercy and in one second threw it all away it was all i could do to shake my opponent s hand gather my things and leave very hastily i walked home choking back actual tears i haven t cried over a chess game since i was 7 years old perhaps only chess players will understand how i felt but it s something to do with the levels of concentration required to play well suddenly and crushingly collapsing into utter nothingness there are several pieces of advice that present themselves from the embarrassing embers that are my play in that game 1 never get frustrated that your opponent hasn t yet resigned when you are in a winning position the frustration will cause you to lose focus 2 don t allow an interruption like a time control to break your concentration or if it does take your time get up from the table perhaps NEVER play your next move quickly unless you absolutely have to 3 mentally check check and recheck every move then check it again before you touch anything 4 don t play chess as an escape from the stress of finishing a thesis share this Share Facebook Twitter Reddit Tumblr Pinterest Google Like this Like Loading Related 2010 05 25 POSTED BY reallyquitetired CATEGORY Uncategorized TAGS zwischenzug Chess Write comment Comments are closed this is a place designed to house thought excesses if my mind is archimedes bath the water my general thoughts

    s the way that s the closest to the Greek Sometimes I do pronounce it the English style because I feel embarrassed about having such an extravagant name Seems weird to comment on the way that someone chooses to look after their baby People try their best to live in a way that they feel happy with Seems odd to criticise that Also seems weird not to include the names of the readers when you tag them next to the article so that I guess people searching for them on line are directed to your site Maybe that s not the reason though as you wrote my last name as Adam in your tags Maybe you don t want people who search for me to be directed here All the best Socrates reallyquitetired February 2nd 2012 QUOTE Dear Socrates Thanks for getting in touch I did enjoy the event and I hope you were not offended by my comments about your name beard voice or what you read None of them was intended to be vindictive rather simply a record of my experience Interestingly the philosopher Socrates name is written in Greek with an alpha short a in the second syllable and an eta long a in the third which suggests that you him and the Brazilian footballer all pronounce it differently I m sorry you think bad of me for noticing the way a women carried her baby and for writing that down I don t think I was criticising her just conveying my impression of what I saw To me that seems an odd thing for you a writer to disapprove of As for the names I chose not to pair up the readers closely with my descriptions mostly in order that the post didn t look like a review which it is not Also as you might have noticed I did not remember one of the names and therefore am missing a tag Perhaps you could remind me of who the other reader was As for your tag well that I m afraid was a typo and one that I have now corrected I sort of wish I were as scheming as you implied but in truth things round here are less sinister and more haphazard I am amazed when anyone arrives as a result of a web search especially given that I have refused to be bothered to do any proper optimization Regards RQT socratesadams February 2nd 2012 QUOTE Hi RQT I think that ancient Greek pronounciation is different from modern Greek It s nice to think that I don t pronounce it the same way as the big guy I guess I don t think bad of you for criticising the way someone looks after their baby I just said that I found it odd The implication of your writng was that she was using the baby as some sort of accesory although I might be wrong which seems unfair to any mother As for
