Hi Alois/Jeff,

In your career, was your mentality that every opponent, whatever his rank is equal? Like would you regard a Chinese player an equal challenge as perhaps, an Egyptian one; not bigger, nor smaller?

Hi Yousaid,

I think that is an interesting perspective. I certainly wasn't able to do that effectively myself.  I think you should go into a match with reasonable feel of your opponent.  Sometimes that will influence the way you need to approach your tactics as well.

Go into a match with eyes open.
