Why do chess players bang their head?

Head banging is surprisingly common. Up to 20 percent of chess players bang their head on purpose after a loss, although boys are three times more likely to do it than girls.

(Dr. Anna Z.C.: "get out of here, you serious? Well then, that explains some"

 

Head banging often starts somewhere in the middle or endgame stage. This usual occurs in the rush to provide a response to a move, board blindness, or a blatant failure in calculation from:

 

i)             Lack of coffee

ii)            Busy with Laundry

iii)          HBO

iv)           Mosquitoes

v)             Bad mood!! (blaming everyone or everything else)

vi)     Bad mood for no apparent reason?!

 

The head banging habit may last for several months, or even years, though most chess players outgrow it by mid 20's.
