Today I can’t play chess to save my life. I can’t imagine why I would ever be required to play a game of chess to save my life, but it’s true. Maybe there was some kind of Scream-type villain who instead of asking me my favourite scary movie asked me about my best counter-play to the Vienna Gambit. (Note: don’t take the pawn on f4)
I went through a phase of constantly improving, but now I just suck. I dropped below 900 Blitz for the first time this year. I’m losing a lot of games and instead of taking time to analyse why and to adjust, I just play the next one tilted and lose again.
Until tomorrow, that’s a poor strategy for life and for chess.
