I can't ignore this anymore, I need help. No, it's not drug or alcohol related, it's rather my chess.
I'm keeping my rating between 1600 and 1700 on chesscube, which I'm quite fine with at the moment. I consider myself pretty strong at tactics and endgames, much weaker in openings though. Now to the problem - I'm hanging pieces. No, really. I'm hanging them every game. I'm not loosing them through tactical blunders, I simply overlook my own hanging piece!
I can out-tactic most of my opponents, but after a move or two I leave my rook hanging and there goes the game. I'm spotting mates in 2, even 3 relatively easily, I'm good at spotting general tactic patterns (for my rating), but what good is all this when I'm loosing 95% of my games due to simply overlooking a piece, even a queen here and there.
So, any advices how to go about solving this? It's driving me nuts - not because I'm loosing games, but because I'm loosing in such a stupid way games which (in most cases) I've already gained advantage in. And - I've already tried nailing "check all own pieces when on the move" into my head and (obviously) failed.
