Some people preferred to ask the question of whether he/she is one move ahead of the opponent or one move behind the opponent.
One could use the factors of time, space, force, and topographical position to assess that specific strategic outlook..

How does one determines if he/she is one move ahead? When he knows his next move and that he has the strategic foundation to make that move. It does not matter if the opponent
If that move forces the opponent to meet that threat, the offensive player becomes two moves ahead.
q: How does one knows when one is three moves ahead.
