Attempting to go back through both scoresheets to reconstruct the game (or trying to replay the game through my mind) only proves to be an even more frustrating exercise where I just can't hold my concentration... (all the while my clock is running down)... and then another distraction pops up!

Sometimes it's good to wake up!
I'm glad I'm not the only person who has anxiety dreams about organising chess tournaments - although I'm rarely a player in these dreams!
