I have often seen players, from amateurs to grandmasters, spend 5-10 or sometimes 15 minutes (I have seen even worse case) to make the first move, then proceed to get into time pressure game after game. I can never understand this concept and I am trying to know why. If you are one of those people who do this, can you please shed some light as of what you are thinking?
