On playing chess | Samuel Reshevsky

Samuel Reshevsky, age 8 defeating several chess masters in France, 1920

"By playing slowly during the early phases of a game I am able to grasp the basic requirements of each position. Then, despite being in time pressure, I have no difficulty in finding the best continuation. Incidentally, it is an odd fact that more often than not it is my opponent who gets the jitters when I am compelled to make these hurried moves."
