Neil Remington Abramson commented as follows:
I often get some “smart” idea that I think will turn things around. I suppose it’s symptomatic of what my mentor used to call Western management: ready, fire, aim. As opposed to the more usual ready, aim, fire.
However, an important chess concept is “I resign”. In a hopeless position. I resign this game, but I suppose there will be others. If not, it’s a relief not to be stuck in a hopeless draw that the opponent will not agree to.
