Reading this article made me browse through some of my picture folders to determine which one I have preference of. Well, it seems that I have quite a few:
1. Hidden Hands
I do this quite a lot, mainly because of the air-conditioning.
2. One-Finger Lip Bridge
This is one of my favourite. It denotes that I'm seriously thinking of how to punish you. So, whoever encounter this post while playing against me should beware.
3. Palm / Cheek
This is used whenever I'm in trouble, or at the wrong end of a tactical maneuver. You might want to search for something wrong in my position.
4. Power Fist
This is when I'm considering a very powerful move. I might be giving the next move with a punch!
5. Ear Muffs
This is the way I'm saying 'Quiet, please!' Obviously, if I'm at the first board like in this picture, I just need one hand.
6. Crossing Hands
Well, I could not find the category in the article for this last picture, so I will call it 'The Crossing Hands'. I use this to say that I'm quite satisfied with my position.
There may be many more hand positions I employed during my games, and I could not have possibly capture them in pictures as I was deeply engrossed in calculations during the time. If you have pictures of me with other hand positions apart from those above, feel free to send them to me.
So, what is yours?
