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... refute that.

I fear nothing when I play chess which is why I always get slaughtered. - Me.-

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.\'

- Kasparov

@ 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.-

I like that one. But it is so true, you can really take an opponent to school one game and then next, well, good night Irene-
