Hello dear friends. I am back from vacation and happy to talk more about my two favorite subjects: chess and failure. Now, that we covered basics we get to more advanced stuff. New Rule!
Rule 8. Keep bad pieces
The life is not easy. Sometimes you need to exchange your pieces for some equivalent material. As my old friend used to say, “between Bishop and Knight I choose 3 rubles”. But seriously, exchange is necessary part of the game. And if you want to lose, keep bad pieces. You can easily spot them: bishops who are stuck behind loads of paperwork, knight who is comfortably sitting in the corner office away from the action. Those are your sure bets for comfortable loss. If inexplicably you end up with a good pieces, turn them into bad once: place you active rook behind triple pawns and charge it with support the front runner, place your pawns, those little bureaucrats, on the squares of the same color as you bishop; they will make sure that this runner will not be go here or there. That finesse will not go unpunished and, once again, you got a doughnut hole for you hard work. Way to go!
See you soon for new Rules.
