Yesterday, Oakcrest chess team defeated Burlington chess team. I was board 5 Varsity. I played against a JV member that had been moved up because their board 3 couldn't make the match.
I remember doing well in the beginning and being a bishop ahead already. I felt guilty while playing. I went a little easy and made some mistakes that i overlooked but he didn't see them.... -__-' i ended up just playing seriously toward the end, though it appeared not to be... (to Oakcrest chess team that was looking at the match, you know what i'm talking about... ^_^')
Has anyone here ever played someone and felt so guilty that they kinda just let go a little during the match before actually playing seriously again? Does anyone have any tips on playing all out regardless? ^_^' I can't seem to do that yet....
