By being mindfully perceptive enough, one should be able to identify the gaps and the psychological perception flaws within the Moscow Rules.
One can only guess that it works for those who spent their time drinking volka by the gallons while competing against "remedio" strategists.
In an extreme Darwinian situation, which approach would you preferred to use - Using the Moscow Rules while living for the moment or Assessing the Big Tangible Picture (BTP) methodically while being mindful of the "concealed" influencing factors - before deciding on any strategic move?
There is a technical weakness with each approach. Whether one is are to able to deduce that distinction point is a different story.
... In the realm of extremity, there are some field strategists who usually live off some sort of misguided set of principles without ever understanding the configuration of the Big Tangible Picture (BTP). Their survival-ability is frequently based on the "chance" factor and rarely ever knowing whether he/she is ahead or behind the situation.
In the case of the Big Tangible Picture (BTP), the patient strategists who are ahead of "The Big Tangible Picture" curve, usually preferred to understand the configuration of the situation before delineating the ranking of choices. The approach enables them to make a more efficient choice.
