Most of the games I win show skill and imagination, and are well worthy of annotation.

Most of the games I lose are lost purely by bad luck, and are therefore uninteresting to anyone else.

Draws, maybe, as long as they're against a higher-rated opponent.

[Quote from: "Earl of Norfolk"]
[Quote from: "penarth"]I find it strange that you can't request an annotation for a game that you've won.



The idea being that basically all you're seeking is validation by an outside source that you're some kind of genius.

This didn't used to be a prohibition. In the past, I annotated several requests by game winners. The result was usually to show that the player won not because of his skill, but rather because he had made the next-to-the-last error and that he had played poorly himself but he won anyway because his opponent had played even worse. Well, nobody really wanted to hear that.





But for some self-annotated games by the winner, the annotation is far from correct. One such deluded self-annotator, cannot remember who, described his game as a "neat tactical game". I discovered going through the game that it was a total tactical-strategic mess. Therefore there is a need for a facility to request annotations for games one has won.

Well, now we have a guest from Germany who will be staying with us until the end of the month. Stuff like this is always happening here which is one of the reasons I gave up playing and annotating, but I promise I will get to your game eventually barring death or disablement.
