2019-09-30 Fudging

The Alexandrian talks about the justifications referees might when they are fudging in GM Don’t List #9: Fudging and I recognize an older version of myself. Perhaps we all used to fudge at first. Perhaps the rules even said that it was OK. Justin Alexander doesn’t just provide the justifications people might give to defend their fudging but also refutes these, and links to blog posts with even longer refutations, if you feel like reading up on it. And then he judges you for fudging if your still do it. Its a failure state, he argues. Think about what led you here learn from it — improve your game instead of continuing to fudge.

I agree with everything in that blog post.
