Is there a cure for playing blunderfull?

My big problem is my rotten play and especially my blunders.  Just played a nice game, routed a decent player, https://lichess.org/V2zsemfOzMIL but when playing it over again, I saw that on move 30 the opponent blundered away a castle, and I didn't see it, but went on to win a pawn. 
Didn't matter too much in the result, the opponent resigned on move 32, but it is not good.

All my games are riddled with blunders like that.

Does anybody know a solution for that?

The horrible truth is; also on move 31 I could easily win the rook, but also then I didn't see it.   
And when I play over the game I see it right away. 

Why not during the game??

After your opponent moves, see if you can see what his threat is.

One method that used to be common was recording the move on your
scoresheet before playing it but that's now considered cheating.

In the day it was common even at GM level with the best known case
being during Fischer-Spassky Reykjavik 1972. (The writer was Spassky
though Fischer also did the same occasionally)

If it's a critical position a good method is to get up from the board
and visualize the move from your opponent's side of the board. As long
as you are discreet and don't distract them there should be no
complaint. Obviously you can't do that with every move but it's common
to walk about during a tournament game and if you do it 2 or 3 times a
game at most there should be no issue.

In this game on move 15 I happily blundered away a full rook:  https://lichess.org/8Xa8y614cXwy

Fortunately I still managed to win, but I'm not happy with blundering like that.

I guess I'll have to learn to live with it.

At least I'm not the only one blundering.  Here https://lichess.org/SLk0etSK3Qyl an 1847 who on move 6 blunders away his queen, and resigns.  

Easy points and the comforting feeling that I'm not alone in my blunderfull games.

More news from the blunder front.  In this game https://lichess.org/o73gM2Od26dW I managed to blunder away a horse on move 13.  It was not particularly hard to see, the horse was under attack by a pawn, it was just that I didn't bother to look at the position before I made my move.
But the real howler is, that the opponent didn't take my horse.  He only took a pawn. :D

And then further on in the weird game, the opponent blundered himself into a mate.

All is well that ends well. 

But I start to doubt the quality of the chess games in Lichess...

But then again, a strong GM, Tartakower, he saw that principle already, so maybe it's just a common and inescapable fact of life that we have to learn to live with.

And again, in the early morning, I played a horribly blunderfull game: https://lichess.org/YFHPuDJa8uh0
  I overlooked one of my favorite moves, a nasty horse fork, for two full moves.   Only on the third move that it was possible I actually saw it, and after telling the opponent "Nasty horse fork" I made the fork, forking his queen and king.  After the fork I could take his queen, but I decided to take his king and mate him.

How true are the words of GM Tartakower:  

http://tiny.cc/next-to-last

That's just the way it is....

Not much I can do about it.

Sometimes chess blindness hits like lightening:  https://lichess.org/SNblCrnQiNqX

In a handful of moves I went from +5 to -2 by blundering away two rooks and a bishop.

Missing a mate in one is a big blunder, right?

Just did it:  https://lichess.org/2JKGp3Pa8X0O

Not that it mattered, I did something else, and the opponent resigned.  

It was really not that bad of a blunder, I caught myself in the nick of time almost blundering away a castle by almost taking the pawn on h6 on move 40.  

It's getting boring posting all my blunders here.  It's an unending and labour intensive story, G.d forbid. 

Let's just all accept the fact that I play very blunderful, and that's it.

Please don't hold it against me and please don't start yelling at me because of it.

I really can't help it.

So as Tallybloodyho I had an exact 2000 rating, and started a new rated game: https://lichess.org/iCfKE2hIJIxE

In that game I managed to blunder away a horse on move 7.  So I accepted the fact that I was going to sink below the 2000 again, but lo and behold, I managed to win the game!

This one is very interesting:  https://lichess.org/4oPiYIp2PbdB

It happens on move 10; the opponent attacks my bishop with a pawn, and I decided that was a good moment to do the castling.   He took my bishop, and I just never noticed.  Once I won his queen, I was surprised that I was only 2 points ahead, but didn't think to much of it.
Only in the postmortem did I see that I blundered away a bishop.

Like a wise man said:  "If I can only get rid of these blunders, my rating would improve by leaps and bounds."

But it looks like I just have to learn to live with them. :(

No offence but blundering pieces before turn 10 is not the mark of an
Expert. (Not that I ever had much regard for server ratings - I was
2450 once on one of the better known servers though have been a
lifetime OTB high B player with a lifetime personal best of 1905)

So as Tallybloodyho I had an exact 2000 rating, and started a new rated game: https://lichess.org/iCfKE2hIJIxE

In that game I managed to blunder away a horse on move 7.  So I accepted the fact that I was going to sink below the 2000 again, but lo and behold, I managed to win the game!

No offence but blundering pieces before turn 10 is not the mark of an
Expert.

I'm afraid that I'm not an expert.

That's just the way it is.

But I keep hope; maybe in a next life.

This is one of those days again.  In this game I managed to blunder away 2 pieces, and still win the game.  What does this say about the opponent?

Both times he didn't notice me blundering away a piece.   The first one was on move 10, I thought it was safe to take the pawn, but I overlooked that I would not be able in the end to take with the queen, because of the threat castle e1, pinning my queen on my king,  losing the queen.  But he played  it wrong.  https://lichess.org/qyT1WCz9e1bd
Next one was on move 20, I gave away a piece in full daylight, but the enemy didn't see it.   HalleluJah!!

It says neither of you are anywhere remotely close to mastery.

If you are truly seeking to advance there is work to do.

No question blunders happen but you do need to try to minimize them
and either resign immediately or fight like hell to recover an
objectively lost position - and I >have< recovered such positions

It takes a lot of mental work = a lot of mental stress to always look very well at the position, and prevent one move blunders.   I'm usually not in the mood for that.

This one is interesting:  https://lichess.org/Qfw9UGHF7T1D Played it yesterday, the enemy puts a castle right in the line of fire of my bishop, ripe fruit for the taking, and I didn't see it.  He also not.   This happened on move 15.   But the castle stayed there, and I also could take it on move 16.  And also on move 17.  And also on move 18.  And also on move 19.  And also on move 20.   But on move 21 I saw the light, and I took his castle.

Sometimes it takes a while, but wait long enough and I see good moves.

Here we see an IM, Lichess rating 2463, blundering.  The opponent gives away a piece, and he doesn't see it.    So if IM's do it, I'm not to blame for my blunderfull moves.    

An other interesting thing we see here, is that the IM plays against an opponent who is more than ELEVENHUNDRED (1100!) points below him.

I prefer lower rated opponents, but 1100 points lower??   Even I don't stoop that low.

So I guess I'm not so bad after all.

Is there a cure for playing blunderfull?

 Unlike computers, humans make mistakes.

There may indeed be a practice regimen for chess players which
will improve their ability to see possibilities over the board.

But I recently encountered, in another newsgroup, mention of
an old bit of German doggerel from Bavaria that this reminds
me of, which goes approximately like this:

For fleas, there's powder;
for shoes, there's polish;
for thirst, there's water;
but for stupidity there is nothing.

Of course, blundering at chess is such a reasonable
error that it isn't really the kind of stupidity referred
to here... but your question still called it to mind.

Unlike computers, humans make mistakes.

There may indeed be a practice regimen for chess players which
will improve their ability to see possibilities over the board.

But I recently encountered, in another newsgroup, mention of
an old bit of German doggerel from Bavaria that this reminds
me of, which goes approximately like this:

For fleas, there's powder;
for shoes, there's polish;
for thirst, there's water;
but for stupidity there is nothing.

Bs"d

No cure for stupidity....

That means I'm screwed.  :(

Well, you get used to the feeling after a while.

Is there a cure for playing blunderfull?

My big problem is my rotten play and especially my blunders. Just played a nice game, routed a decent player, https://lichess.org/V2zsemfOzMIL but when playing it over again, I saw that on move 30 the opponent blundered away a castle, and I didn't see it, but went on to win a pawn.
Didn't matter too much in the result, the opponent resigned on move 32, but it is not good.

All my games are riddled with blunders like that.

Does anybody know a solution for that?

Yes, there's two actually.

1. Pain. Nothing teaches you faster than pain (physical or psychological). There you are, thinking hard, evaluating your position and your rival's until you see it, the winning combination. Only it's not a winning combination and you lose a rook and a knight for a lousy pawn. That will cause a great deal of pain. My suggestion is: let that pain run through you and think why you are feeling that pain. This will teach you very, very fast.
2. Practicing tactics. There's many good apps and websites that allow you to evaluate "white to play and win" positions. Start with very simple mate in 1, mate in 2, etc and slowly increase the difficulty. Every 3 to 4 months redo the simpler ones again so you are always practicing. In due time you will start analyzing positions with more care and blunders will be less and less frequent the more you practice. There's no way to avoid blunders altogether. Even international GMs blunder from time to time.

I read the book "Rapid Chess Improvement" by De La Maza.  So I have CT-Art 3.0, and practice regularly.  If there is one thing I learned from it, it is that after long and intensive practice sessions, my real chess after that is worse than ever.  I'm dropping pieces all over the place.  Somehow it teaches me bad habits.   If I then continue playing normal chess, then after a while my rating goes up again, and usually to a higher level than before the practicing with CT-Art.   So it does make me better, but it takes time, I have to unlearn bad habits I seem to be picking up with that.

Anyway, that IM which I posted above, overlooks the opponent blundering away a piece.  Magnus Carlsen sometimes blunders away a piece.  I accept blundering just as a part of chess.  That's just the way it is.

The weird part is; after the game,  when I play over the game manually, without computer analysis, the blunders they like jump in my eye, they are so obvious, you can't miss 'm.   But during the game I'm blind to them.  What causes that extreme tunnel vision during the game?
