Personal Notes

In life there are no takebacks. "Chess is life." (R. Fischer) Ergo, etc.

You say your mouse slipped? That's no different than a Fingerfehler in OTB chess. And if a man cannot control his mousie, is he a man or a mouse?

In an unrated game, I may allow a takeback, but I will never ask for one, and you have no right to one.

Actions have consequences. Take responsibility for the former; learn from the latter.

Be kind to your opponent; you need him to have a game. Don't whine if you lose. If you are paired with me then you are a patzer and can expect to lose many a game.

Play hard, but with detachment from the outcome. Apply this principle to your life as a whole. Don't blame others for your stupidity. If you are a snivelling crybaby who can't stand to lose, find another pastime, or else play your computer at its lowest setting.

Thus spoke the Sage of the Superstitions.

All churlish rascals will be forthwith zapped into the outer precincts of cyber-obscurity there to languish with rest of their scrofulous ilk for all eternity.
