"everybody has a photographic memory, some people just ran out of film..."
Moments when you should have feel danger at chess:
1. There has been a change in the pawn structure. Your opponent has 8 and you don’t have any.
2. Your opponent begins to throw pawns at your eyes.
3. You have a position won but your opponent has a gun.
4. The Director tells you not to bother turning in your score sheet after the game.
5. Before game begins you notice your opponents 1st initials are ‘GM’.
6. After completing your development you sense your opponent playing the endgame.
7. Just as you make your opening move your opponent announces mate in 11.
8. You don’t control any squares at all.
9. Your draw offer sends all the people watching your game into uncontrollable laughter.
10. Your opponent has 3 bishops.
Always good to keep this stuff in mind during a tournament...and new addition when it is your turn, taunt and scare your opponents by saying "At last, it's my turn to control the pawns muhuahuahua!!(evil laugh, crazy eyes) (Stephen Hawking) and yes i have played in tournaments before, this would make your opponent mentally unstable for at least 10 moves, so move fast, strike swiftly, and take advantage of psychological warfare!!!!finally,
Playing it safe is the most popular way to fail...
i also have two two titles right now
1. The smart but quiet kid and 2. The Resident Chess Philosopher with a twist of satire(thanks to Teja)
