Devil Finger of Chess

Your move

1st Tournament match

I sat ready and prepared to give my best games in this brilliantly organised chess tournament. Here’s what I was analysing and pondering over for approx. 12mins. It looked like a great winning line playing as White.

And now here is what I actually played with my little devil finger, after doubting my analysis and wanting to play it safe.

My 2nd, 3rd and 4th matches were met with a mixture of query and amazement

2nd Tournament match

Oh my days, so here’s the thing, I took deep analysis of the position, played it back in my head, this is how the game played out from my analysis in my mind. I play black.

So how come when I go to make my move I actually play it this way.

Only thing I can think is that my opponent hadn’t allowed me to castle so I was feeling a little frazzled, also I was down a pawn so maybe my subconscious took over and said ‘lets be having that pawn back’. Devil finger :O

 

3rd Tournament match

I don’t believe it, after an early blunder resulting in a loss of a piece, I regroup and comeback strong to equalise. I visualise Bishop F5 as the only sensible option and then ‘devil finger’ rears its ugly head with Rook E8, crikey Maloney. I play Black.

4th Tournament match

After all the ‘devil finger’ antics in the earlier games, I resolved to really focussing on playing the game I know I can play. This game was fantastic even though I didn’t win, I can rest easy that it was due to my opponent having better ideas about how to close out the game, rather than a major blunder on my part. I play White.
