Patzers Are Optimists

The Science and Super Models blog is a little bit behind with this paper, but this observation did catch my attention: "That brings us to chess. Chess, like science, is the kiss of death for optimists. Only the most naive rookie feels optimistic in Chess."

Note that the same paper, Chess Masters' Hypothesis Testing, was already featured in Chessbase way back in 2004.
