Thanks for the tips guys. I've wondered about doing post-game analysis. Everyone says its helpful and what you should be doing. But I'm wondering how exactly you learn from it. Say you spend at least 5 mins per move analysing your game, but in the game itself you had only up to 20 secs to consider a move. Of course, you're likely to see a lot more when analysing for 5 mins. So how does that benefit of hindsight translate into tangible benefits in your next game when you also only have up to 20 secs to analyse a move, if you see what I mean? What I'm asking is, how do you put your learnings from your post-mortem into practice when you only have that same short period of thinking time during the next game?

Is it a case of you gradually build up greater knowledge from your post-mortems and you are somehow able to gradually translate that into better critical thinking during your games during the short period of thinking per move that you get?

Simple solution: don't play blitz exclusively.

But yes, it will translate. I wouldn't spend the same amount of time on every move during analysis. Go right to the interesting parts, the tactics, the critical decisions, and do your best looking at alternatives and deciding what you think the evaluation really is, then check with the engine. Check both the game moves and your analysis.

If you really dig into your mistakes, and really dig into positions where you were confused, then yes, you'll learn stuff and will be able to apply it in future games.
