Finally, game 3
Do you get stressed out due to time pressure?
looks like most of my own games.
just looked at game1. you really need to work on your king placement and need to keep it protected a lot more. The white bishop on a2 was so powerful during the game because you didnt' move your king to h8 where you would got out of any potential pins. If necessary play h7 to avoid mate from a rook on the back-rank
Yeah, I had like 5 minutes left after 25-30 moves in most of these. These were 15|10 games btw. I panicked and started making bad moves.
Try to relax, then. When I feel tense in the middle game, usually I open a new tab and check my Facebook page for like 20 sec or I go pour myself a cup of coffee and then I start feeling better. Even if you're low on time in the endgame, try and play the best you can until the end; time control is part of the game, as is losing on the clock. It's always better than losing because of a blunder. Also, don't play too many games in a row, it's better to stop playing for a whole day sometimes; instead work on your tactics, study other people's games, etc.
