psychomotor speed = the speed of successful solving new situations in the game; includes receiving information from the environment, looking for an efficient solution and efficient acting.

For quick acting, it is necessary to train in changing conditions that place player in situations of continuous and fast search for efficient solutions. Exposed to such conditions, he creates motor programs that enable him subconscious and immediate finding of good solutions.
