I think hate will not help you in the long run. but what will make you become a better chess player is having a rival - one you do not want to lose to.
if you have to meet a rival in a tournament and you know one week in advance you have to play this person - you study his games or their opening for hours and you find the mistakes he makes. - this will make you a better chess player. you study hard and you want to study because you know if you don't you lose.
I hate them if i lose in 4 or 5 turns lol >.<
I might be mistaken but wasn't his main rival in real life Kamsky who won the 2013 U.S. Open....? (I seem to think so but i am not sure.....) I both read the book and saw the movie but its been awhile.
I love to hate them and hate to love them...
When you dont like your opponent there is a juicy/spicy tension to it all... like when you prick a delicious (still sizzling) steak and the fatty juice squirts all over the place...
During the game youre sweating.. your adrenaline is surging through your thickened veins... you stop blinking and go into trances... imagine crushing the smug little fool opposite you... your heart racing like a computers processor, between moves when you need a rest from calculation your mind wanders to that magical ethereal realm of fantasy ... of possibilities... imagining the humiliation of the opponent as he begs for draws and desperately searches for magical saves and stalemates, his eyes frantically wide jerking itself around the beautiful net you put around him, admiring the position youve engineered. Magic............ OHHHHH I goto start a game right nowwwww!!!!!!!!! with someone on my "friend" list hahaha lets not kid each other... it is an "ENEMY" list....
If I sat across the board from you, you would definitely win. I would be laughing and wincing too much.
