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)

"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
