I like to play positionally, ergo my favourite chess players are Capablanca for the simple elegance of his games, Karpov for his squeezes and square control and Petrosian for his defence, prophylaxis and exchange sacrifice motifs.
The clock is part of the game too. I will take skulls.
Even if my position looks lost, you will have to prove you can win. Nobody ever won a game of chess by resigning.My chess instructor says "if you can't see how you might lose, play on!"
