David v Goliath chess

Davids usually beat themselves. They make blunders when paired way up. Goliaths can rely on routine moves and wait for the double-question-mark moves. Goliath knows he can beat most Davids with very little thought. He can choose most of his moves based on intuition. He plays the first move that occurs to him. But when a Goliath depends on intuition he isn’t calculating as he would against an equal. Many upsets come about because Goliaths didn’t see a tactical resource for their opponent.  David vs Goliath Chess – Andrew Soltis 2016
