The Black Oddity

Jul 9, 2012, 10:27 PM |

So recently I've been noticing that I play much better as black than white. I'm kind of wondering what this says about where I am as a player right now. I'd guess it would mean that I'm generally better at counter-attacking/playing defensive than I am creating and controlling the tempo. It's more of a recent trend as well, it didn't start off that way at all. It could be just a coincidence, it might even be a confidence thing or even something else. For now I'm just going to call it the black oddity.

This blog post will be good reference for months (years?) later, to see what kind of player I develop into.
