Sense of danger Or better yet lack of it. Anyone else suffer from this. It happend that I nearly escaped a mating attack on my king simply because I wasn't paying attention to my opponent's moves. I was to preoccupied with my own plan. Although I manged to save both games this was rather due to superior chess skill that anything else. Any cures for this illness? Any brothers or sisters in sufferance?

Shouldn't happen here. This is correspondance style chess. Take you time and look over both sides. If your only taking a minute or so to evaluated the position and respond as in OTB play then your at a disadvantage if the opponent is taking much longer.

I see that your average time per move is 2 mins. Is this because you record the opponents move and come back to the game and quickly move then?

Style of play I play very fast in the openings, read too many opening books so it's gotten to me. Anyway my question wasn't related to GK but to OTb chess.
