There are some moves in chess that seem atypical – one player decides to go for an all-out attack using atypical moves. Obviously, there is a downside – you risk not handling the attack very well, and the opponent has good answers to your moves, and you end up losing.
But, from time to time, I’m so surprised by those atypical moves, that my mind gets overwhelmed, and I make silly mistakes.
This happens even in life when thieves or conmen try to create a surprise for you, and they use this element of “Something is new!” in order to try to rob you.
Surprise has its downsides.
