On playing chess | Samuel Reshevsky, 1948

Samuel Reshevsky, age 8 defeating several chess masters in France, 1920

“By playing slowly during the early phases of a game I am able to grasp the basic requirements
of each position. Then, despite being in time pressure, I have no difficulty in finding the best
 continuation. Incidentally, it is an odd fact that more often than not it is my opponent who
gets the jitters when I am compelled to make these hurried moves.”
