I’ve been playing a lot of chess really quickly, and I’ve been gaining wisdom from the game. The key lesson it’s taught me is there is never quite a better situation than forcing a win-win. There is no situation that is quite so optimal as that of a forcing a win-win situation, where with regard to either situation you still walk out winning.
Creating yourself a negative catch-22 brings is effectively the greatest situation. Forcing your opponent into the check in either case. Creating the situation for a queen capture followed by a capture of the king. Causing yourself to have a position wherein either situation you win is the goal of every game.
