Right frame of mind

Sep 3, 2013, 6:46 AM |

My problem in chess is that when I am in right frame of mind, then I play wonderful chess. But, when I am in bad frame of mind, I just keep blundering and losing.

Recently I was not in the correct mood and hence made blunders in many games and lost quite a few games. I was just mad at myself because I had blundered so much and that my online rating went below 1800 for the first time. So, I just wanted to cross 1800 again and I played totally contradicting style of chess and won against a NM.

Just shows that when I am in the right frame of mind, I can play as I like and still win. On the other hand, when I am not in the right frame of mind, I just keep losing whatever I play.

I am posting the game against a NM which just finished. I totally played out of my comfort zone but managed a win.
