I have been trying to increase my positional awareness in chess. I have not read any books or had any teachers. I've been trying to employ ideas from articles and forums on chess.com and here is a game I'd like some feedback on. How did I do with my positional study? In this game in particular, I was attempting to not do so many viariations and simply play positonal ideas like space, bad piece/good piece, exposed king, etc etc.
Let me know where I make mistakes or where my comments are inaccurate, please.
I've read articles on chess.com...namely gserper's openings for tactical players and other various articles by silman and arun/magesh. i know some openings to a certain point. I also have been playing for awhile so I have experience with some ideas and game situations.
I'm simply asking how I played. How did I play the game? How did I evaluate the positon? Was I accurate or did I miss some important ideas?
you played very well
i think that you are an excellent positional player!
I haven't looked at the entire game, but 27...Qh5 does not deserve a ?. It was his next move that was a blunder. If he had played 28...Qh3, the position is fairly even
He resigned at that point because even though he could play rc7 to get the rook out of take, you can exchange the knight for the bishop at b7 and once he retakes, the black knight at d5 is left hanging to your bishop at b3. He would down an entire piece and he really has no real attack.
