I figured 2500+ was where I belonged Dan 🤣

I like my capturing piece to fleetingly occupy the same square as the piece it is capturing and coldly nudge it a little, before picking it up.

Using my right hand I pick up the piece I am capturing with and then put it onto the square I am capturing on while removing the captured piece at the same time. I set the captured piece down and hit the clock.

I will pick up the captured piece first. Likely then do a fake scan of the board as if not sure. Too late I know if you abide by the touch rules Then place the capturing piece on its spot whilst still holding the capture same hand. much like a cat toys with dead prey for no real reason. Whilst likely if ahead in any exchange, resting my elbow on the table and rubbing the captured between my fingers in eye line of my opponent. Never of course looking up from the board. Staring intensely to give the impression I can see something he/she cannot.

I always move the capturing piece first. An acknowledgement to the "Touch/Move" rule.

When you are playing over the board, how do you execute a capture? Do you pick up the capturing piece first? or the captured piece?

I give my thoughts on this topic in a new blog post:
