    Re: Second guess [transitive]
    1 to try to say what will happen or what someone will do before they do it:
    I'm not going to try and second-guess the committee's decisions.

    2 American English: to criticize something after it has already happened:
    The decision has been made - there's no point in second-guessing it now.
