  alexmagnus: Yesterday I experience the most amazing change of form I ever had.

... The chess day started badly. Of my daily five puzzles on chess.com I solved only three - in one of the failed ones just not calculating far enough to see the refutation of my solution, in the other one missing the idea entirely. The I went to play. My typical "slow blitz", 5+5. First two or three games badly, even the win. But what happened in the following hour or so...

Not just that I won all my games during that hour. <How> I won them made me wonder what the heck just happened. All games but one ended in a mating attack (some with sacs, some without them), and that before move 25. In the only game without a mating attack I trapped my opponent's Queen within the first dozen of moves (but blundered while he tried to untrap it, ending up "only" a piece up). I felt, as if during that hour I didn't just paid more attention to the game as usual - even there I still made some silly mistakes.. No, it felt as if I suddenly <understood> chess by 500 Elo better than usual - as if somebody lent me the chess understanding if a 2000+ player for an hour, while still letting me make occasional tactical mistakes not worthy even a 1400. The pieces just fell to their places so that the chances for a mating attack (and those were all different attacks, not just some standard approach) became higher with each move.

<What was it?>. And how can I learn from such a high of form? How can I "materialize" that feeling of new understanding?
