I will, however, always remember my 1992 clash with Igor Rausis. 11 moves into the game my opponent had all of his pieces out and had castled, whereas as white all I had to show for my development was having placed my queen in front of my king. Six moves later it was game over, and not in my favour. A big, big lesson: just because you are good (or think you are!), you'd better be sure before breaking general principles."

- GM Chris Ward (when asked for his memorable worst move)

  MissScarlett: I still think Tarrasch's <It is not enough to be a good player; you must also play well.'> has a better ring to it.
