Chess strategy refers to your ability to make a good plan for the position.
Tactics skills on the other hand refers to how good you are at seeing a combination of moves (usually 2-5 moves deep) with which you obtain some advantage.
Anyone else who can come up with some of the main differences between tactics and strategy?
I think your definition nails it.
Good looking and informative site, I've bookmarked it for further attention.
How strong a player are you?
To be honest, I am about a 2000 rated player but I dont play very actively - I spend more time coaching than actually playing - but I look at what the grandmaster are saying and try to put in into informative and useful information
Thanks for bookmarking.
Yeah good one. I also like what Fischer said - tactics flow from superior positions.
Strategy helps you get the good position, tactics help you get the concrete advantage from the good position.
Strategy would be like if I got a gun. I loaded the gun. Then I walked into a store. I would need to decide what kind of gun and ammo. I would need to decide what time. I would need to decide if I will be alone or have accomplices. I would need to decide exactly what store.
Tactics would be either taking the clerk hostage, shooting the clerk, or demanding the clerk pay me the money.
