I like attacking, but everything involves logic.
My playing style is really stupid.
Counter Attack !
I would describe mine as dubious. I picked dynamic because it seemed to be the closest thing.
In actuality everybody has a little of every "playing style" inherently ... with one or two style traits dominating. Personally, I find a certain satisfaction in "tricking " an opponent in making a move(s) from which I can swoop down like a "fox in a hen house" and totally devastate the opponents resolve (watch someone point out "foxes don't swoop").
i am a calculator, definitely!
And I like madhackers thoughts on this subject...classic stuff
Logical is what I picked but u need to have all of the above but the one thing that connects it all is your evaluation of the position after you've calculated and played logically and thought Intuitivally and looked for tactical chances you need to then ask yourself am I winning or am I losing hmmmmmm.
I think that this is more sort of a personality test question than a "real" playing style question. You can't have only one of the above except the logical maybe ...
If most of chess.com members are rated near 1200 or 1300, that is where the peak is on the bell curve that shows chess.com members. And the majority or at least 22% of chess.com members say they are attackers. Can we deduce that postional play is a stonger form of chess played by higher rated players?
game with blunder is -it a "style" ?
Vincero is right. Surely, a "defensive" option must be added.
If I strongly prefer playing as black, and sometimes play Bird's or king's Indian as white, how else can I describe my style? I prefer to render initiative to my opponent until his attack works itself out, and then to try to win in the endgame. Can such style be called defensive? I think so.
Hmm. Mine's not really a mystery
this is like asking a mall shopper what paris fashion style they try to dress as.
"Autistic" (Ret - sue me :))
Haphazardly with occasions of good luck? Oops, not an option.
