I believe I can speak for all bad and mediocre chess players when I say that the loss of one’s queen generally brings about a specific miasmos best described as abject defeatism. Quite often, we merely resign. Greece, that gnatmost of all nations, has been playing against Germany–whose queen possesses legendary powers (some say she can even imitate a horse)—without a queen of their own for quite a long time now. But the trap has finally sprung: the queen is trapped. As often happens, he waded nipples-to-forehead into the fray, overconfident, all but all-powerful.
War reparations! Well played, Greece! Germany defeated on two fronts: one must pay one’s bills, eh Capitalista Merkel? Ja. But one must not overcharge as punishment, eh Adolph?
