In the classroom like in chess, sometimes the best answer is the simplest one. So if you can answer any questions wif the word 'yes', and in chess complete each move wif the word 'yes', each one slightly louder than the last, its lots of fun and demoralizing to your opponent :)

I should have made this Chess Psychology thread.

Anywho.. Lesson 1 in Chess Psychology 101

Wear your sunglasses when playing chess even at night ...
but remeber to offer a reason no matter how silly it is for wearing them
eg. 1. these are my lucky sunglasses and I always wear them
or 2. its my birthday next week do you mind if I wear my sunglasses.

Then by wearing your sunglasses
1. your oppersition wont be able to see what your thinking (they do it in poker)
and 2. you will look cool

Pal Benko was waaaay ahead of the game in the sunglass wearing department.

He is reputed to have worn them to combat Tal's hypnotic stare.

If Tal sees his own reflection it might put him off his game!

When I coach chess in primary schools they love to hear the story behind the above picture:

Benko had played Tal numerous times and had been crushed each time. He then told his friends he thought Tal was cheating. He told them he thought Tal could hypnotise people with his eyes and thought he (Tal) was hypnotising Benko into making losing moves. He told his friends that he planned to wear the Sunglasses next time he played Tal to block Tals Hypnosis.

Word had spread (even to Tal) that Benko had this planned. So the next time they played, when they took their seats, Benko pulled out his Sunglasses and put them on. Right away Tal pulled out a pair of rediculously oversized glasses (possibly to make his eyes look bigger) and put them on.

Spectators and other players started laughing at Tal. Eventually Benko laughed too. Before the game started Tal took the oversized glasses off and won in under 20 moves I believe.

(Or so the legend goes)
