Would you rather win a bad game or lose a good one?

    lose a good one. I would rather do my very best and still lose than win easily. If you're not challenged, you don't grow!

    I think you will find many so called "great" people got to be so due to the enthusiasm and enjoyment for their pursuits rather than the sheer motivation of topping their respective fields.

    However, the fact remains that for you and me and for many others chess will and can only ever be a hobby.  Spending time on a hobby comprised boring/bad games can only amount to a wasted existence.

    you make a very interesting point about the enthusiam i guess i must go back to reading the wsj

    I rather lose a good game. I do not feel proud to win a game that I played like crap.
