So I've just blundered away 2, maybe 3 games tonight, and I've been playing worse the past day or two than I was before. How long do you find you usually have to wait before you are capable of playing good "real" chess again. Hours, days? Is there anything you can do to refocus yourself into playing for real and not making it worse?
Also, I know I shouldn't resign these games yet, but it is tempting as it is so depressing to look at my stupid losses. I don't want to play slower in these games, but I think they have a negative psychological impact on my other games. Any suggestions?
