    is when my opponent makes a good move.

    That is all.

    I hate it when I make a bad move.

    Good moves by my opponent don't really bother me.

    The thing I hate most is when I haven't forseen the good move of my opponent.

    i hate building up a good position after 30 moves and seeing it fall down like a house of
    cards because of a single blunder.

    So would you love to play against a chess engine on its lowest level?

    I know that I cannot play perfect chess. I am unhappy when I play
    worse than what I know that I am capable of playing.

    ... and that is at the heart of chess!

    I enjoy my opponent plying great moves; I enjoy them more when I have foreseen them; I'm in heaven when I have a riposte!

    Also hate myself for attempting to force a position when

    I have neither momentum nor any other right to do so.

    This basically sums it up. Of course, since I hate this, you'd think I would spend more time trying to eradicate these blunders from my game.

    I hate getting things forked by a pawn. I'm getting better at avoiding it now, but I sure used to get pawn-forked a lot.

    Backward knight moves- unless it's my knight.

    If your opponent makes a good move... make a better one.
