The cons and pros of impulsive chess :)

One of my weak points in chess is playing too impulsive from time to time. See a move and wanting to play it right away.

Sometimes that leads to blunders, and if I'm tired and distracted it can lead to more obvious blunders.

I just played a game in which there was "impulsive" chess by me, but this time it worked out fine.

Here's a mini mini miniature, where Mikhail Tal could have been happy about ... "First I look for option to sac the queen, then sac ... then sac ...".

Here's another example, where I played impulsive without thinking for long, and ... lost nicely.
