Hello. This is a question for an adult 1800-2000 fide rated player: "Why do you keep on making the same mistakes in your chess games?"
Everyone keeps on making the same mistakes in their games at some level.
Oh, you figured that out already, ha? Good! ............. but why!?
And you don`t care?
Thats what my dog said when he peed on the floor yesterday, I said why do you do those things??? lolo
Simple answer: you need to work on your weaknesses; that's where one always loses their games, and it can punish moves of hard work.
And if the player who follows that advice continues on making the same mistakes?
Then I guess nothing will help you
But I think anyone who diligently is figuring out what they're doing wrong and aims to eradicate their mistakes, can go a long way. A ton of what makes good chess is being able to avoid big mistakes; giving stuff away; although it can be nice to make brilliant moves, they won't be much good if you also make moves that allow the opponent to make a big gain with little effort, and that has to happen at only one point in the game for there to be problems.
Oh, you are so funny Elubas!! By the way at what age did you start playing tournaments?
Hmm... must have been 13! Wow that seems so young now!
