we learned more from a game we lose than from a game we win
I think this is true. We tend to remember more about the mistakes we made compared to the achievements. This is because it hurts to see us make a mistake.
It sure is an interesting sport. I use to watch a few animes that had go, shogi and chess. They tend to be fairly interesting because it required a lot of hard work for them to succeed. They are always looking and studying the past games to brush up on different strategies. During each match, they overwork their brain to win even if its by a single point. I just find it fairly appealing and great at keeping my attention.
