Punished For Not Looking Twice

«If you see a good move, look for a better one.»

After 1020 problems solved without blunder I got this one. Oh, wow, double check, I said to myself, there is nothing stronger than a double check. I saw Ne4++ and moved it. OOOOPS. Too late.

Anyway, this tells me one important thing. The problem is not knowing a rule or guideline. The problem is applying it. This is what my CTS training is about. And I learn every day that this is VERY HARD.
