The sun takes the moon; there should be two to a room
So the pawns aren't on my side today. I realised, as I clicked 'submit', that I'd made a stupid blunder in one game, because I had a Freudian slip of the mouse-finger, and put a pawn on a wrong square. And in my other game, I'm being dominated by Piers' hot pawn action. I thought all those literary references about the strength of a pawn were rhetoric that had the potential to be true, but I'm being offered evidence this week.
At least I'll take more time over my decisions in future, I suppose.
