    positioanl play is good but

    it's not an attack

    it can't win the game by itself

    it can be cracked

    Positional when I had enough sleep; suicidal, blinded, oblivious, stupid, and lazy when I haven't.

    By the way where is "strategical" or "defencive"? I bet lot of players play this way.

    Positional, as Alekhine - i try to get into good positions before launching a sacrifical attack!

    I once read: "a chessplayer ceases to have a style until they are about 1800....before this, there is just a collection of weaknesses. As a chessplayer studies and improves, their weakneses dissappear and a style is carved our...mostly based of the most heavy influences during your time of improvement". Me... I'm a technical player/active positional.

    Positional play.

    I suppose it depends on who I am playing, with weaker opponents I tend to attack attack attack.
