“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. 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.
"I play honestly and I play to win. If I lose, I take my medicine." -Bobby Fischer-
