How theoertical do your games tend to be? How soon is it before you're unable to follow a previous game, either of yours or somebody else's, or some line you've read in a book?
So far this season I've played half a dozen times and on average I have to start thinking for myself on move six or seven. OK, that's a pretty small sample but as I recall it was a similar story for the 30 odd games I played last year.
So how about you? Theory hound or free spirit?
