Well, in the OTB rating, I've been stuck at 1600 for a while. I really tried my best to excel, but I couldn't. The problem is I don't see my opponents move no matter how much time I take. I know if I am able to see my opponent's move, I will b able to get at least 1700-1800. although, I don't know what to do or how to get myself to see my opponent's moves. Any tips or suggestions?

trying to focus on the key part, like king side when trying to attack, just stare at the king side and trying to find weak point.

Try to calculate every move and learn the ideas of the opening that you play but also the possible defenses of the oppenent.

If u can't see the opponent move then how u think u will win? u have to calculate ur move and predict ur opponent move simultaneously. Otherwise u can't be master in chess.

Well I do predict the opponent's move. It's just that he doesn't do the move i predicted.

That's the part u have to work on. The more accurate u predict the more game u will win

But is there any tips in working to predict the most accurate move?

Just think about the future. Look at any moves you can force on your opponent. See if you have any checks (as long as it is safe for you) or check them if you have a checkmate route. Always look at the entire board and ask yourself each move, why did the opponent move their piece there?
