Get up and FIGHT!!!

There's a scene in Scott Pilgrim VS. the World when Matthew Patel first attacks Scott Pilgrim and it plays out in slow motion.  Scott is sitting there wondering, "What do I do?"  So, Wallace yells, "FIGHT!"  Scott suddenly throws a punch that sends Matthew Patel flying into the walls.   That's pretty much how I felt at the beginning of this game.

Against a higher ranked player I would have been chewed up and spit out but against lower ranked I knew there was a chance.  The question was, could I find it?  This game was a four minute blitz.  I pretty much sucked on my opening but I kept fighting trying to create some threats, control the center, something.   Now, some chess players will think this was all luck.  But in chess, knowing when a person has made a mistake and capitalizing on it is very important.  I recognized mistakes and kept fighting.  Next fight, Nega-Wesso!
