I (around 1700 on classical games on lichess) need advice on how to correct some mistakes I often make during the games, if possible, from a player with a Master title or higher.
I have noticed that during my games I tend to make the following:
-Hang pieces (usually pawns, but from time to time a piece of greater value).
-Capture a defended piece with a piece resulting in a disadvantageous exchange.
-Quite commonly make wrong assumptions of the nature of the game. For instance, thinking that after a move I can capture a pawn only to realize it is already defended or thinking that I am threatening checkmate with knight and queen (say on the 8th rank) when in fact, the queen cannot deliver it because the knight would not protect the queen when checking the king.
-Fail to see a tactic (a pattern easy to spot for me but I still omit it). In particular, some combinations in which a check made by my opponent makes the game turn into their favor.
-Sometimes I make a calculation mistake. I think this is due to my inability to play blindfold chess and see the variants in my head.
I know it is embarrassing to make these mistakes but I really need some advice from a player who has been there.
Plus, I also realize it is hard for me to follow everything that happens in the game. For instance, after a discovered attack, I sometimes miss it and if I realize, it happens by luck and very late. I feel like it should be easier for me to keep track of these things after 3 years playing chess quite seriously.
The conclusion I get from my games is that I should be more focused but I am missing the ability to not be overwhelmed by the changes caused by the pieces' moves (that I mentioned earlier).
Thanks very much for reading.
