Blunder Shock

    How do I HANDLE them?  

     

    I forget them.  Hopefully.  Seriously.  You can only control the position which you are in.  Once I have made a blunder(and realized it immediately after hitting clock) I am immediately trying to find a way to salvage my position or complicate etc.  I don't have the time or energy to worry about the many blunders which I have just made

    blunders have taught me the most about the wornderfully complex game of chess.  often after making a mistake your opponent gets overconfident.  Provided you some material left to play with dig deep and act like its a tactics trainer.  only a game.  The part I dislike is when I don't feel Im blundering and still get "handled roughly".

    Blunders are part of the game. If I play a game without a blunder I count it as a win even if I lost.

    I always let my opponent do their tactic before I resign. Even if one of your pieces is hanging there is a chance your opponent miss it. I've played games where both queens stand unprotected next to each other and the one that first blundered the queen won a queen instead after his opponent missed it. I have also won a game after my opponent made a blunder as he resigned before I got the chance to find the combination. If my friend wouldn't have told me afterwards that I could win a piece I wouldn't have known why my opponent resigned since I didn't feel like asking why he resigned.
