i suck at time(i once lost an 1:30 + 30 sec every move game because of time and i was winning!!!!) i am also horrible at openings.
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 am bad at time managment.
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!
engames i no how to start and concentrate and avoid the time running out but it stops at endgames why why why!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
converting a winnig pos into victory!!
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...
when theres a lot of pieces
i almost always lose on time when i play chess
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.
THIS SURVEY IS COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL,
but ill vote for the endgames
wish i could answer more than one. i would say endgames and positional.
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 :(
God loves you just the way you are.
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...
