The Worst Way To Lose?
I'm currently playing a lot of games against opponents quite a lot stronger than myself, and I'm having a pretty hard time of it. By way of some repentant self-flagellation, I have exhibited two horrible losses below for your entertainment.

1. To fight hard against a stronger opponent, and just when an unlikely draw is finally in sight, blow the game with a simple oversight? See Exhibit A
2. To play without any plan and allow yourself to be completely overwhelmed without even putting up a fight? See Exhibit B
