@PawnstormPossie - I feel miserable because of my lack of wisdom, not only in chess

Sometimes, a miserable failure is constantly trying to improve. There is a wisdom in that type of thinking also.

In the long run, the key to victory is the ability to go from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.

Chess players are supposed to be Arrogant! Ask Fischer. Ask Kasparov. 

@bong711 - I hadn't a chance to ask Bobby Fischer about chess because I didn't play chess neither in 1972 nor in 1992. Asked Garry Kasparov for 2 blitz games in 1997. He beat me twice! Didn't ask Magnus Carlsen, yet wink.png

@IpswichMatt - you're totally right, British English is proper English. Howgh!  I hope it sounds arrogant enough

Hey I was only pointing out that optimissed was correct for uk but that the spell checker was correct for USA. I’m not claiming British English is better or anything.

Wow you played Kasparov? What was he like?

@IpswichMatt - I think legendary English GM Anthony Miles described perfectly how playing against Gary Kasparov looks like after their 1986 match in Basel. Following this encounter, Miles commented: "I thought I was playing the world champion, not a monster with a thousand eyes who sees everything". Miles drew only 1 game and lost all 5 rest. Kasparov won the match 5.5 - 0.5 (+5-0=1)

Amongst Kasparov's most impressive feats were his clock simuls against 4 GMs in 1998. Seems unbelievable

@IpswichMatt - yes, Gary Kasparov dominated chess world for over 15 years. I'm curious how long Magnus Carslen reign could be? wink.png
