have you ever almost dozed off while driving a car? people always get focused after they get in trouble. it's a wake-up call.
This describes me, in CC and OTB play. For some reason, I only run my fastest when someone is chasing me.
I also have the problem both ways. In OTB play I have a reputation in Florida for swindling otherwise lost games, but I am also a "master" at blowing advantageous positions because I relax.
I've gotten much better with my winning technique by mentally challenging myself to finish it, rather than relax, but I still blow good games from time to time. At least the swindles make up for it!
