You play chess for some time and know by heart all the tactical motives and how to attack but still, you are not 100% happy with your game.
You might wonder why you are not able to perform similar tactics and attacks against any opponent or in any position.
The answer to your question is simple: You need to improve the position of your pieces before you can perform tactics or attacks.
The great player Paul Morphy stated it very accurately: “Help your pieces so they can help you.”
So, how do you improve the position of your pieces successfully? In order to answer this question, we need to know what is a positional move.
Positional chess is characterized by the moves that make your position more active. You need to place your pieces in the best possible positions (Positional Chess) and then the time for tactics or attack will come. This will give you the chance to establish tactics and attacks.
