Kotov syndrome

WARNING: This article was written 13 years ago, it may contain informations that are no longer valid.

In Kotov’s 1971 book Think Like a Grandmaster, he described a situation when a player thinks very hard for a long time in a complicated position but does not find a clear path, then running low on time quickly makes a poor move, often a blunder.[1] The term has been applied to similar non-chess situations, and is the title of a song on the album Appeal to Reason (October 7, 2008) by the punk rock band Rise Against.[2]
