Most of young chess players think tactically and love attacking, which is good.
As they professionally grow, the importance of positional aspects of the game significantly increases. The opponents do not anymore make tactical blunders; thus, you need to outplay them positionally.

You will get the answers to the questions:
- What is the Positional play? What skills do you need?
- How to effectively strengthen your position?
- Why is a pawn called the Soul of Chess?
- Why is Piece Exchange a key aspect of strong chess technique?
- What is the connection between Pawn Formation and Piece Exchange?
- Why is the Open File considered as an important strategic element?
