Hmmmm I guess it's due to middle game tactics? I assume you understand open game concepts of piece development and that you understand end game tactics of check mate points on the board? With the middle name, it's all about who can be first in best dressed in setting the ownerships of pressure settings of the board? Hope I'm on the right track here

Chess is basically about assembling effective weapons out of disassembled pieces and pawns.

Everything (concepts, strategy, and tactics) runs from there. Coordination? Yes, because it's rare to see a piece alone winning a game. Development? Sure, as pieces in the storeroom are hardly coordinated to do anything active or to defend. Playing active? Indeed, forcing the rival to spend tempos to defend against threats may delay –or stop– his own assembling process while speeding up the own.

Weaknesses? Aye, it's usually less complicated –and faster– to assemble a weapon to destroy a paper than another to hit on a rock. Pawn structures? Of course, as they define the roads to assemble the pieces into units. Pawn breaks? The same reason, when the newly opened roads may clear squares and lines necessary to make pieces to work as a larger or more effective unit.

Studying? It saves time on the board when we're familiar with more models of weapons, whether to make one of our own or to prevent the rival to build his. Besides, there's no guarantee we will spot either on the run or as fast as when we've done our homework properly.

And why all this? Because for the average beginner is not crystal clear that chess is hardly about isolated moves and more about plans (often referred to as "ideas"). The lack of such a concept leads to the belief that a move is judged by external or statistical criteria rather than the needs of the position they have in front of them. So, as long as they don't play with a plan nor check the rival's, the reasons for the defeat will remain a mystery to them.

If each person is born with an exact number of good moves in them, then you should be winning games very soon, because you obviously haven't used yours up yet. happy.png

but what if they aren't born with the exact same number of good moves?

Play and study, lessons if possible, the combination will let you win your share of games and build your enjoyment.  A chess master is a person who has lost a 1,000 games.  Best regards,

Take two weeks off playing blitz and if you want to improve use that time to read a few beginners' chess books.

I'm not being insulting .... I kept on reading as many beginners books as I could find for years because they deal with general principles.

Study basic endgames. Analyze every game you play. Try to do all lot of tactics. Stop playing blitz, rapid and bullet. Play classical chess because it let’s you think and calculate more. That’s the drumbeat of success!

Btw on Chess.com playing daily chess may help.

It all depends on how you practice....everyone is different...you need to find whats more effective for you...may be books...may be playing online everyday...may be some coaching from an actual coach in a chess club...all I know for sure is if you put in the hard work, progress will come....like I said everyone is different...this should also be a lesson to see if you have that passion and drive for chess...do you love it or do you just like it....anyways Jesus loves you
