Playing in a Fog ... Attitude in Chess
It's been a long long time since my last blog post. Much has happened in my life in that time, primarily a new opportunity career wise has arisen. Right now I'm on a holiday break in Taichung Mountains where the mist is very much reflective of my Chess game.
I largely would have dropped 200+ rating points in the past half year as I've simply stopped caring about my correspondence play and wanting all my games to finish. I hope to regain some pride in my play where I previously put maximum effort into my simultaneous correspondence games. A real lack of Chess work ethic has come over me.
In reviewing my game on the White side of a Semi Slav, I can see I was also in a pessimistic mist which clouded my Chess assessment. Having believed I was much worse for a lot of the middlegame, I failed to appreciate my own resources, and this is a constant theme in my games.
