Deep Blue sees every potentiality but the Grandmasters know tactics. There is no fun in seeing everything. There is no fun in watching the only possible outcome play out. The fun is in the guessing. The fun is in remembering & inventing tricks, schemes, strategies, histories, inversions, deceptions, revelations. Do I do this because it is fun, or out of obligation to the next move, the next move, the next move. I feel it somewhere between the squares, in the lifting of an arm. My fingers are still on the piece.
