How do you git gud at chess?
I studied tactics, definitions and basic strategies but I always make weak openings or fuck them up eventually. When I manage to reach endgame by having roughly the same points of the CPU I just don't know what the fuck I should do
tactics and end games til you're ~2000 rating
then you can start worrying about openings and positional play
that's what every really good chess player I've ever known has told me. some of which are above 2000
Chess tutor here. Do you have a rating so that we have a good idea?
Most of the advice here is solid. Tactics websites such as Chesstempo are great. Books on positional strategies exist too, and make sure you learn your basic endgames like KQ KR KP or KBB v K. Also, don't throw openings out of the window yet. Learn the first few moves at least.

Looks like we found the area which you need to improve on.
Play through games of masters. Try to predict the next move as you go. Stop and analyze when you can't figure out why the players made the moves they did.
Tactics problems as well. In following the evolution of computer chess, I found that any game is 90% about who can see deeper tactically. All this stuff about positional play are just rules of thumb based on tactics.
And just play a lot to gain fluency. Like immersing yourself in a foreign language, the more you play, the faster and deeper you'll be able to think.
1. tatics ever day, try to solve position before you move pieces, quality > quantity, it is better to solve 10/10 than guess moves and solve only 10 of 20.
2. endgames study everyday, find good book on endgames, check chess.com forums and study everyday
3. Read and understand 10 gold rules about moving in opening, do not waste time on memorization of theory.
If you will study this way for few months (everyday 2-3h) I think you could eaisly go up to 1900-2000 elo in 6-9month?
Of course you would have to solve thousands of combinations.
