    Freudian interpretation: Freud usually focused on whether you could keep it tight or not. We all know Giri suffers from verbal incontinence. And judging from his play he can build up sufficient pressure to beat anyone. Unfortunately he "pops" when the most important move has to be made. It would be rude to point this out unless... We could actually give Giri a good advice: "Strengthen your body and heart by playing soccer and do some weightlifting." Yes it is that simple. With just some increased stamina his mind would work faster and effortlessly and he would be longer in flow or "in the zone". The same is of course true for everybody. Anyway great upload! Thx!
