Chess is all about having fun. It's a great feeling to pin an enemy queen, or launch a devastating attack on a castled king. Great games bring a feeling that draws us again and again to this amazing game. Another part of chess; however, is the inevitable situation called losing. It happens to all of us. Some, like me, see this situation more than others, but none are immune to this happenstance.

Sometimes it feels like you are bogged down in a pit of losses, with your tattered rating falling along with you. But there is always hope, even in the darkest times. Hope is what gives your last pawn the surge for freedom, and groups your last few pieces for a desperate final attack. Because sometimes, there will come an amazing victory against all odds, if you only have the courage to try.

Let me show you a case of a beginner's miracle here today, in hope that it will inspire you to always have that glimmer of hope, no matter the strength of your adversaries.
