It's been about two months since I started learning about chess. I guess my earlier comments were very accurate. I am having some problems with my positioning. I start off somewhat solid, then I make a gargantuan blunder that jeopardizes everything. There are some moments where I believe that I made the right move but there also are times where I just don't know what I was thinking.
I basically have the same problem with programs and with live players. Maybe it's just 'tunnel vision' - NOT SEEING THE ENTIRE BOARD. I really need to be patient, but I have to admit that patience is a thing I don't have an abundance of lately.
