Player: dsuttles Subject: Chess quotes on the game page
|Chess quotes on the game page work their way into one\'s memory, but do they improve one\'s play?|
Do you want to discuss them?
Is any your Open Sesame?
Cast your eye down the page and let us know what you think.
I will post some together here and open blogs for one or two.

|Lev Polugayevsky: A sensation, hidden in the depths of my emotional memory, was suddenly revived: what if... What if for me The Variation is not dead? If The Variation is alive?!|
I get a similar thought in every game as I trawl the moves which will take me out of book.
I call it the \" Is it safe paradox \"
Paradox because it`s pessimism v optimism. The optimist will pick the pessimistic move and the pessimist will pick the optimistic move.

|Thanks, Extopian. It is an interesting one, that. I wonder how similar your feeling is to that which Lev Abramovich describes. He does say the variation was hidden in his emotional memory, so he must have been ruing a past defeat. Hope extinguished and reborn. |
Wonder if it was this? Sicilian Najdorf, Polugaevsky Variation: 7 ... b5!

|Variations last until the big refutation chopper comes down, or get to be well worn paths which lead to safety or blunder.|
I think GM`s all have their own little moves created in their subconscious which is planned for when a variation is on the cards.
....It`s not the variation but the move further along the path, which if they just get the chance...if their opponent plays ball...
Kerpow..now refute that.

|I take my hat off to anyone who knows how the pieces move, Henri.|
Do you agree with the following?
\'Weaknesses of character are normally shown in a game of chess.\'

|@ dsuttles; it applies to any game and it also depends how much time you put into the game. No matter how much strenght of character I have, I will never come close to beating Kasparov at chess or Roger Federer at tennis.||-|
