* If you're losing take a medical timeout. Pretend you're half dead and miraculously recover when your opponent stops trying. If you're still losing after that just quit.
I can understand that your posts mainly consist of pointless "sarcasm", but is it really necessary to write that many words if you don´t have anything constructive to say? This thread is obviously about a serious question, not a normal GM Fed-Rafa thread...

Good posts by Bobby and Trixtah, just have fun, don´t overtry, try to play the game you feel comfortable with, don´t try to exceed your abilities, even if your opponent is better than you. If you lose, don´t be too hard on yourself, there will always be another match!
