Three games, three poor results

Jan 16, 2012, 4:12 PM |

I'm pretty depressed with my recent results. A loss in a drawish position in the 4 Nations Chess League on Saturday was followed by a tame draw on the Sunday in the same competition. To cap off a poor three days, a loss that should never ever ever ever ever ever ever in the entire history of the planet ever ever ever ever ever should have been a loss.... I could blame fatigue, I could blame anything but the only thing I have to blame is my own crass stupidity. The loss in the third game you will see here is the most disappointing loss I've had in the last fifteen years. I'm in need of a big pick up right now but the only person who can do that is me. My usual back end of the season is looking like it's going to form... or not to form for me... How on God's green earth could I be sooooo stuuuuuupid???? I know I have submitted some pretty poor games this season but this one absolutely takes the biscuit. Here's the scenario... "here have a free pawn and a winning position".. me: " screw that, you can have the exchange and a much better position if I just make the crappiest move ever in the entire world"... opponent; " thanks for that, I'm now just going to play sensibly and completely rub your nose in it"... me; "no thanks to a glass of wine, i'll have a double jack daniels and coke". Honestly, I'm disgusted with the way I am playing at present. No flair, no rhythym, no ideas, no class, no co-ordination, no sodding nothing.

As promised, though, all games blogged. I have to say though that I have not been able to make any comments on them whatsoever... After a period of quiet reflection (and possibly some more wins at some point, if they ever materialize that is) things may change. Suffice to say, I really am disgusted with my own lack of form and lack of concentration.

The good news is, however, that, like Arnie... I'LL BE BACK... Trust me, someone somewhere is due an absolute ass kicking!! It may not be this week, but it will be sometime and sometime soon.....
