Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-18-13  wordfunph: "I had tricked Walter in the opening and at move 13 I was winning, though not as easily as I thought at the time. From about move 22 on, Walter was in terrible time-trouble, still with a very bad position. Around that time he confidently offered a draw and was a bit offended when I just laughed. I messed it up and started to use a lot of time myself. When we had made the time-control I was dead lost."

  perfidious: In such a scenario, I would never insult someone by proposing a draw while short of time and having the worse position.

Am I in trouble there? Of course. Will I let them see what I am thinking or feeling? No chance-none whatever. The only way is to go down fighting.

  Stonehenge: Hans Ree once described how he spent a sleepless night during a storm in a room that was disapproved by Walter Browne, his upcoming opponent. What happened the next day, Ree described as follows: "From say three o'clock in the afternoon until two minutes to six you have a completely won position. At six o'clock you walk groggy with a zero in the bag to the bar."
