    My weakest point in chess is winning.

    My main problem,in my opinion, is that I overlook the oponent's simple moves and thus make the blunderious moves. Sometimes, I over-estimate myself and play silly moves and whatever I say about my lack of concentration, will be very little of the actual fact. I lose 80% of sure-win games for these reasons. I know all these excuses are marciless; but these are so.

    I'd say right now I'm equally as weak in all those areas. I lose my games equally in any area of the game!

    I voted "tactics". It's true that I have a lot to learn and exercise there. But loss of concentration and playing too quick are two other very weak points in my game. It's non-stop working on it...

    I voted endgames but perhaps I should have voted psychology.  I seriously lack the patience to even bother with endgames, trying to crush my opponents in the middlegame.  Unfortunately, that doesn't always work too well vs. international masters :P.

    Theory is a huge waste of time to me, but if you misplay the opening at the A class and up, you're usually in big doo-doo :(

    I suck at positional play D:

    Strength and stamina :P I'm always tired during evening and night games :(

    I believe anyone below 2200 level who did not select tactics is a bloody liar :P

    Positional play I think is by far the most tricky. For example, knowing when (more importantly, why) to make quiet moves like a2-a3 in several french/sicilian lines is difficult

    I think, when overconfidence meets with lack of concentration and also when some1 goes to do somethink different forgeting the basic rules, whatever may be the situation... Undecided
