the issue is that no matter what we think is the best move you need to look deeper into the position than making a decision as to which way will give you the best possible outcome is the key.

I have an ongoing game where my opponent moved a pawn threatening a Bishop with no backing. After pondering for more than 1.00021 seconds as to why he was giving away the pawn for free I noticed that taking the pawn would lead to a fork of my Queen and King by his knight.

I retracted my Bishop instead.

Improving isn't so much learning anything new as it is applying what's already known. Or maybe unlearning bad habits. If I could refrain from impulsiveness . and inattentiveness, I'd .be a, halfway decent player.

Think longer than 0.000000000000000000000000000000001 seconds per move
