Do you get stressed waiting for your opponent to make a move?
In the wait time on one of my games I waited and mentally kept thinking which of three moves I should make. After I made it, I kept thinking I should have made another move.
Now the wait time for his reponse was heavy on my mind. Do you guys have this same problem?
I am not stressed now. Can't believe that I worried so much, I don't want to lose this game. I want to win it.
I am not playing not to lose, nor playing to get a draw. I'm always trying to get a CRUSHING advantage at some point that I will win any game I am playing. It's not a personal thing, It's my own mind playing another mind. I like that some one is there to be able to play a game with.
I have never played games with such a lapse between move. I was always used to making a move immediatly.
I went to my grandaughter birthday party. I could see the game in my head and played with it. I went to dinner and again the game was on my mind. all Friday and Saturday it was heavy on my mind.
I am playing another game on line but that one I am not concerned or worried about.
So do you guys ever worry? Do you take it in stride and don't ever stress? In my mind I even thought if he asked for a draw, what would I do. I even thought I should resign just to stop the stress.
No. I can't show you the game in a diagram because that isn't allowed because the game is in progress. This is not bout the moves It's about mental stress I got.
Thanks for reading and if you comment.
That No Stress Chess is not the first original Chess that is played with cards.
The original was invented by Lance Harmening Card Chess Co. of Santa Rosa, Ca. It consist 52 set of cards Just like a deck of cards and two jokers. It sell for $5.00.
Instead of a 9, 10 Jack, Queen or King.
It has Bishop, Rook, Knight, Queen and a King.
He gave me one of the games. I have played it with my grandchildren and it is easy to play.
Now we play it with any regular deck of cards and a chess set. If you draw a 2 you move the second pawn. You move what ever the cards show. If there isn't a piece to move the other person draws a card.
Except if you draw a nine you move the Bishop, a 10 you move the rook.
The king can be in check but the game ends when the king could be taken with the checking piece.
Here is the link to a forum piece I posted: Click on it.
when i play a 2200+ player with whom i have previously interacted with. I get too much involved in the game mentally.
Concentrating more on that particular game. Also get super curious to know how he would reply to, when i have made a risky looking move!
I often wonder How the Higher rated player plays against another if both are trying not to blunder.
Is it a little boring trying to look for an adavantage? Also if both can't make a head way against the other, do you worry if you will blunder first?
Here is lin to the piece I wrote on how my thinking goes during a whole game: Click on it.
Thanks for the comment and read.
Maybe it's childish but I have quit two games waiting and waiting for this one particular person to make a move. I made the mistake of giving 'him' another chance after stopping the first game thinking I was just impatient. Then I realized, I was impatient with him. What's the old saying, "once on you, twice on me?" Well I've learned this is this person's 'tactic' to gain points and I will never play him again.
After half a dozen games that I have played where the time limit is 3 or 5 days, I have learned to be less impatient.
I don't make the move as soon as I decide what will be my next move. I wait a day or two before I post it. Or go to almost the limit just to train myself and learn to be patient.
I think it's working. I don't go to the computer to check to see if my opponents have made a move. I make sure I accept the time limits set for the match games.
