anytime anywhere im probably playing or studying this art Or playing poker PLO mostly ! chess games >2min .. less then that there's too much blunder ! (imo)
A winning strategy in Chess often involves balancing several considerations against each other. Moves that maximize immediate material gain might expose a vulnerability or yield a difficult position as the game progresses. A profitable move would be one that both furthers you attack and solidifies your defense.

“A win by an unsound combination, however showy, fills me with artistic horror.”’(The great Steinitz)

A winning strategy in Chess often involves balancing several considerations against each other.

A profitable move would be one that both furthers you attack and solidifies your defense.

"I play honestly and I play to win. If I lose, I take my medicine." -Bobby Fischer-
"All that matters on the chessboard is good moves."
Bobby Fischer
"I felt that chess... is a science in the form of a game... I consider myself a scientist. I wanted to be treated like a scientist."
Bobby Fischer
"I like the moment when I break a man's ego."
Bobby Fischer
