Tim Ferriss once talked about how he became the first foreigner to win the Chinese Kickboxing Championships...
To do so, he noticed a loophole in the rules, and that is this:
"If a fighter steps out of the ring (outside a certain circle drawn on the floor), he is disqualified"
So all Ferriss did, was dance around to avoid hits, and then pounce and literally push his opponents out of the ring.
According to the rules, his opponents lose by disqualification.
Funny to win in such a dishonorable way, but winning is everything, right?
This brings to our attention my point:
Just like Ferriss, Father is playing AGAINST the game, not playing the game itself.
He is exploiting a loophole.
So even if what we see on the board (or in the ring) looks aesthetically disgusting...it gets the job done.
And Father has a special talent for what he does, it really isn't that easy to set up those blocked positions against a tactical monster.
Not my cup of tea though...
