    Surely in the last position in the blog you write "The big difference being now 6…c5 does not attack the White Queen and White does not lose a Bishop."

    Surely KxB loses the bishop... or am I being particularly shortsighted here?

    EDIT: Ok, ok I see it now... QxN

    "Less experienced players look at all the wrong things as well as all the right things.
    The do (or in some case think they do) see more and it is this that affects how they
    choose a move or plan.
    They can get bogged down worrying about all the wrong things and it’s this
    that can cloud the big picture."

    So true. I've learned that some things are good and some are bad, and my play often consist in trying to have as many good things and as few bad things as I possibly can. I've learned isolated pawns are bad so I try not to have them. I've learned I want to be the one with opposition so I try to be the one regardless of whether I know what to do with the opposition or not. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. I know I should keep my rook behind advancing pawns, whether mine or my opponent's, so that's where I try to put them.

    Seeing the big picture is too much for me.

    Hi Wanderking.

    I started off with:

    "It's a collection of small things like that note that is all that
    separates the stronger player from the weaker player. "

    Unless you are gifted in chess and 99.99% of us are not
    then weeding out all the small errors takes time.
    Don't despair, bit by bit they pieces start to fall into place.
    The more you play, the more you study the quicker this happens
    but it will happen.
