That did not go well

"It's all above the neck" is a saying sometimes used in sport. Obviously this is totally true in chess, but not just for calculation. Attitude is also a factor, especially when you bring the wrong one to a game.
Sometimes I'm in the mood for a little experimentation, but this only seems to happen when I've already managed to lose a couple of games. Such was the case at Street Chess last week, when I decided to go for an Italian-Latvian hybrid against WIM Emma Guo. As the headline states, it did not go well.
