You just got lucky.
No surprise. I tend to play badly when I am out of weed.
What would you say is your rating difference with and without?
I don't have an excuse for losing cause at the time in the game every more feals right.however the lamest excuse I've heard over and over in OTB games. "I had a winning combination but I did not make them in the right move order therefore I lost."
one said the above and I saw the game and I know he just blundered.
I think people copied this saying because a +2000 rated player did in fact have a 7 moves winning combination but he should have switched two moves in order to win. instead he lost because the 7 moves involved a queen sac. the above make you sound like you did calculate a lot but was just losing your head in one move, and that you had a win.
I don't know. I've never smoked weed. It was just one of these lame excuses, per the thread topic.
I wasn't asking seriously
Thinking takes time and effort :) Who wants to use that?
Mine is more honest, "sorry I suck".
Candid and forthright, too.
Can't imagine a stamp collector being dishonest.
