Improve your Understanding of Positional Chess – Part 2
Good positional chess understanding is one of the main criteria separating masters from club players. The problem is that it can be one of the toughest areas of the game to improve.
Why is that?
Because it is often left out of lessons for beginners, and there is next to nothing for beginners out there that covers positional chess!
Also, unlike tactics, where a combination of moves gives an immediate benefit, a longer-term positional goal doesn’t always jump off the board and make itself apparent to the beginner player.
Sure, everyone knows how to study tactics, openings, and endgames. But, when it comes to something more sophisticated like positional chess understanding, the majority of players simply don’t know where to start.
The art of positional play should not be underestimated. Not learning positional fundamentals stagnates your development as a chess player and won’t let you reach your full potential. Your tactics and endgame skills may be there, but if you don’t know what to do in the position you may soon be lost.
