Need Help With Blunders

Sort:
thenik6

Hey guys! Last month, I peaked at 1473 ELO..As of right now, I've tilted down to a 1318 (Rapid). I analyzed my games, and I'm blundering damn near every game. How do I get out of this slump?

Check your intended move is no blunder before you play it.
Think about your move, decide. Do not play your intended move. Imagine it played and check it is no blunder, does not hang any piece or pawn, does not run into checkmate. Only then play it.

Why advise someone that's too lazy to even put up a pfp?

Do reduce blunders, the tip you get from GMs is to do puzzles.

They dont only help to recognize mate and other patterns, but they also help with general board awareness and being aware if your attacked piece isnt defended, if you are overtaxing a piece, etc.

@thenik6 one thing I like to do is use an external mouse and the right click feature to draw arows over the position. This makes it easier for me to try not to blunder. My peak is only 517 rapid so take that advice with a grain of salt. However, I do know this stratagy has made me so much better.
