Is it just me, or does it seem that if White castles first, he/she usually loses? I know Black has a tendency to castle first because he/she is usually playing defensively.
It's just you.
Sorry to break it to you but it's just you!
This is a game I played with my Dad and I won when I castled first.
The opening resembles the game of the day for today.
Really? Cool! My Dad taught me that opening so we always play the same thing at the beginning of all our games.
All's well Ethan. You're not alone.
If i castle i tend to lose more often than not, whether i'm playing white or black.
Come to think of it, even if i don't castle i tend to lose more often than not :)
So i'm no help in answering your question. Waste of your time in you reading this really... sorry :)
Is it possible you're getting overly defensive and dancing around on your side of the board in trying to castle? That always sucks.
