The 8th Deadly Sin
When Scottish Grandmaster Jonathan Rowson wrote the book "The Seven Deadly Sins of Chess", he left out being tired. So for my first game in 2 weeks, I was black against a 1600 rated player, but I was exhausted from all these other things going on in my life. I should have just asked for a bye, but I figured I'd catch a second wind and win. I didn't and I didn't. It ended in a draw, and I was on the lucky side for that to happen.
