Love and Hate in Chess

Thu, 2014-01-09 00:42 -- IM Max Illingworth

In this blog post I’ll be talking about a more psychological aspect of chess – namely the significance of loving or hating something to do with chess. Sorry to disappoint those of you looking for ‘How to Beat Your Evil Rival at Chess’ or ‘How to beat your Girlfriend at Chess’ but I can assure you that I will publish these books around December this year.
