I seem to be stuck in between the 1400-1500 rating range in blitz. In almost every single one of my games, I come out of the opening in a winning position. It seems like most of my opponents try to play the opening as quickly as possible, not caring if they get a good position. Because I spent more time getting a good position in the opening, I always seem to miss simple tactics or blunder pieces in the middle to endgame because I’m trying to play quicker or am running out of time entirely. It’s frustrating when my opponents can get rewarded for sticking through a losing position simply because they’re playing a lot quicker than I am. Does anybody else have the same problem that I’m having?
