“Forced Moves Are The Easiest”

My friend Keith McGuigan surprised me just now by posting the following touching sentiment out of the blue on my Facebook wall:

“Forced moves are the easiest” You know I always thought this was some chess lore from some great mind, but a google search turns up nothing. This saying, which I’ve totally integrated into my life philosophy, appears (to me) to be an Erin Dame original. If so… well done, my friend, and as it turns out, it is good advice from a great chess mind. :)

Thank you, Keith, for the kind words! To the best of my knowledge, it is an original. I’m glad to hear it has helped guide you beyond the confines of the 64 squares.
