thanks, I looked for that thread but couldn't find it...
rahim, yes I do use analysing-board always, I think that's probably why I play so lousy blitz. need more visualisation exercises. doing reinfeld 300 for that effect now.
skorj, yea those articles are familiar, but thanks anyway. many others probably haven't read them.
reg, I've been trying to play upside down, now that there's the new 'flip board' feature. it's a lot easier to see opponent's threats that way, and my own position becomes harder to see. so I think it's more about brain getting trained to recognize mirrored patterns than not wanting to see your plans busted. although false pride is certainly a factor too, as is lack of confidence... but do you have a more or less structured process?
any more thought processes?
