Blind Spots

Next to the 80 problems a day there is one top of my to-dos: A list of my blind spots. Today I encountered a blindness for long moves on ranks and diagonals. Earlier I remember chunked pieces attacking and defending each other: Which of them is the weak one?

I had the same problem, so I invented a pithy little proverb to use so I would rememebr to look for these:

Consider long all thy moves. . .

It helps me to remember to look at all the candidate moves and to also look at the long moves.

Now if I could just remember to look at those retrograde attacks. . .
